People have often remarked how fun it is to watch “Old Fashioned” with an audience on the big screen. People love being surrounded by fellow supper club fans and experiencing it together. Supper clubs have a strong sense of community and that same feeling is felt at our screenings.
We’re happy to announce that we have screenings coming up all over Wisconsin and even in Chicago. Read on to see where we’re coming next. And you can always check our website for the latest information on screenings as well.
If you don’t see your community on the list email us and let us know you would like us to come your town!

2016 Community Screenings
In 2015 our focus was taking “Old Fashioned” on the film festival circuit. Last year we also did a handful of community screenings. These proved to be so successful we are continuing them into next year! To add to the appeal of the screenings we have teamed up with Wisconisn author Mary Bergin. Whose book "Wisconsin Supper Club Cookbook" also came out last year. Mary and I are in the middle of booking venues and will release the locations and dates soon! If you would like us to come to your community email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
