The Nomadic Cinema has taken to the road, rolling down Highway 55, for a seven screening stint in the idyllic setting of Stratus Vineyards. The Niagara Artists Centre has cultivated a finely-ripened crop of new and classic titles to be presented in this extraordinary outdoor and safely-distanced venue. Both Thursday night screenings are special Feast on Film events — bringing film and Niagara’s renowned culinary and wine-making arts together to please multiple senses. One of Niagara’s newest restaurants, Ruffino’s Pasta Bar & Grill of Naples-on-the-Lake, will match their farm-to-table fare and pair wonderful Stratus Wines with the screenings on Thursday 3 September and Thursday 10 September. The first, is a freshly-released documentary about famed Italian-born fashion designer and tastemaker Pierre Cardin, The House of Cardin. On the second Thursday, Big Night, a mid-90s comedy about the risks of being a restaurateur and a Louis Prima fanatic, hits the screen. Four other hand-picked titles will light up the outdoors at Stratus on every evening the next two weekends including two screenings of the legendary concert film, Jazz on a Summer’s Day.
