Enjoy Bollywood Film at the Workhouse Arts Center!

Come see this modern classic must-see Bollywood film while enjoying Indian cuisine from Lorton’s own Aroma Restaurant at Workhouse Arts Center!

On March 1, the Workhouse Arts Center will take you back in time with a rich love story featuring some of the biggest Bollywood stars in the movie musical Saawariya, part of the new Dinner & a Movie Nights series which launched last year. The film is based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s short story “White Nights.” Viewers will follow the adventures of two lost souls arriving in a small town, one on vacation, the other to meet a lover.  In the magical dream-like days that follow, their journey takes an unexpected turn... According to Joseph Wallen, Director of Performing Arts at the Workhouse, this film is “one of the most beautiful movies you probably haven’t seen.”

While viewing the film, guests will enjoy a dinner catered by Lorton’s Aroma Indian Cuisine to complement the evening’s theme. The menu will be posted online Friday, February 22, but will include Tandoori fare and vegetarian options in an Indian palate.

The screening not only celebrates the diversity of our region, but is also an accessible film for audiences that haven’t taken the ‘plunge’ into the Bollywood world of cinema.  In addition, the beautiful story, inspired music and gorgeous cinematography are reminiscent the musicals of Hollywood’s Golden Age- large sound stages, a cast of thousands, and the like.  

What differentiates the Workhouse’s Dinner & a Movie Night series is the social atmosphere provided by the intimate W-3 Theatre. “The small round tables allows the crowd to enjoy their food and also linger afterwards to chat with friends, new or old,” says Wallen. “People should definitely give this unique night-out a try.”

Saawariya will be showing on Friday, March 1 at 8pm at the Workhouse Arts Center W-3 Theatre. Tickets are available now at http://bit.ly/Hl8zIT. Be sure to get them early, registration ends two days prior to event date on Wednesday, February 27!
