Food and film have been a potent combination ever since Orson Welles printed the first cut of Citizen Kane on Fruit Roll-Ups. Experience the best of celluloid and snacks with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of cappuccino, café fare, and movies at Fellini Film Cafe, located on Cincinnati Street.
Part eatery, part art-cinema store, Fellini Film Cafe provides a haven for screen savorers to grab a European-style espresso and relax under the glow of a foreign film. Browse the amply stocked art house video boutique for a rare rental ($3 for three nights), or purchase a disc to bolster your collection of foreign and alternative gems. Feed bellies as well as minds with a stop at Fellini's cozy café, featuring an appetite-appeasing array of sandwiches, salads, and desserts. Patrons can sip on a smooth cappuccino ($2.75) and indulge in the café's signature Mexican torta ($5.75) while they watch an independent or foreign film, which are screened nightly at 7 p.m. Previously screened films include the emotionally powerful Danish drama In a better World and the animated French comedic drama The Illusionist, and movie buffs can expect future screenings to feature films from several other countries, including Mexico, Greece, and Kentucky.
