Shaker Square Film and Flavor Series

Movies traditionally only engage the senses of sight and sound. Now Shaker Square Cinemas (13116 Shaker Square, Cleveland) and Fire Food and Drink (13220 Shaker Square, Cleveland) are partnering to bring an additional sense to the cinematic table as audiences will get to “taste” the movies too.


Attendees of the SHAKER SQUARE FILM AND FLAVOR SERIES will see a classic movie on the big screen at the historic Shaker Square Cinemas preceded by an incredible meal, inspired by film’s location, at Fire Food and Drink.


The next film in the series will be the ultimate romantic comedy and perfect Christmas movie, LOVE ACTUALLY, on Monday, December 5th. 


Patrons will dine on a 12 course small bit English pub themed dinner at Fire Food and Drink starting at 6:00 PM 


Note: a vegan dinner option will be available with advance request


Following dinner, LOVE ACTUALLY will be screened at 7:30 PM at Shaker Square Cinemas. Patrons who attend the dinner will receive VIP seating at the showing.


Tickets for the dinner and movie package are $46 (+tax and gratuity) and require advance reservations. Reservations for the dinner and movie must be made in advance at firefoodanddrink.com


A limited number of tickets to see the film only will be available at the Shaker Square Cinemas box office for $6. Tickets for the film only can be purchased soon here.
