WEEKEND: Food in films topic of Sunday lecture in Port Townsend

Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Movie critic Robert Horton's talk “A Feast on Film: How Food Becomes Art in the Movies” is the next program in the Clemente Eclectic Lectures series at 3 p.m. Sunday.

The talk will be in the Port Townsend High School auditorium, 1500 Van Ness St.

Horton will serve up clips from “Babette's Feast,” “Eat Drink Man Woman” and “Big Night,” among other food-rich films, while savoring their cinematic meals — from an Italian repast to Charlie Chaplin's boiled shoes.

Admission to the program is $15, with proceeds to benefit the Jefferson Clemente Course in the Humanities, which gives low-income students access to college-level classes in Port Townsend.

For low-income patrons, however, admission is by donation, while Clemente Course students and graduates are invited to attend free.

At the door

Tickets will be available at the door.

Horton, known for his movie commentaries in regional newspapers and on KUOW-FM, blogs at www.roberthorton.wordpress.com and has authored books including Billy Wilder: Interviews and the new Frankenstein on Columbia University Press.
