Dinner and a movie have always gone together, like rock 'n' roll, yin and yang, and bald eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a prix-fixe dinner and a classic movie at Mogan's Cafe in Pacific Palisades (a $45 value). Events take place on Wednesday nights, starting with dinner at 7:15 p.m. and the movie at 8 p.m. Preferred seating is first-come, first-served. Choose from the following showings:
- Casablanca on June 8.
- Some Like It Hot on June 15.
- Rebel Without a Cause on June 22.
Mogan's Cafe pulls at visitors' eye- and mouth-strings with classic-movie showings and meals themed to each film during its Classic Movie Wednesdays. Dine on June 8 to catch Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca, or make plans for June 15 to see Marilyn Monroe in the harmonious comedy Some Like It Hot, screened while visitors bite into tender chicken breasts stuffed with herbed ricotta and almonds. Movie buffs can munch on a half-pound burger, homemade potato chips, and a bottle of beer while watching James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause on June 22.
The film and feast providers at Mogan's Cafe show their classics both in their art-nouveau-adorned dining room and on the leafy patio. All dinners include an alcoholic beverage paired to the meal and a soft drink. Movie-themed appetizers and desserts will be available for purchase.
