great timing

What you see, is what you eat. Timed exactly with the film. The culinary script of Cinema Culinair is leading for the chef and the service. Good film + good food + great timing. The clou is in the latter. An example. When Tita eats the oxtail soup at minute 55 and 18 seconds, we want our guests to taste exact the same thing. One minute sooner or later is the difference between a good and a fan-tas-tic experience. What matters is that you will not only see and hear the film, but also taste and feel it.

When is the next Cinema Culinair of this film?

We screen Como agua para chocolate once a year, so be sure to check out the calendar!
