When someone mentions an ‘immersive culinary experience’ it always seems to be small portions, lacklustre food, and it finishes with grabbing a kebab en route home. Well, good news as Woodford Reserve Whiskey is promising a film and food extravaganza with its all-new cinematic dining experience. 

The multi-sensory event, A Cinematic Spectacle for the Senses, will host an imaginative and intimate cinema screening alongside a perfectly paired tasting menu of small plates and cocktails, with each course surprising guests at different moments throughout the film to further bring the film scenes to life.

Kicking off at Hoxton’s The Curzon on Thursday 17th November, Londoners will have the chance to watch an early preview screening of The Menu (2022), starring The Queen’s Gambit’s Anya Taylor-Joy, along with Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Hoult. Together with the American dining concept Rita’s, based in Soho, Woodford Reserve will immerse guests in the twists and turns of the film, which is set at Fiennes’ private island restaurant Hawthorn, where achieving the perfect menu comes at a price.

Tickets are £40pp and include a multi-course tasting menu, three paired cocktail serves and your seat at the screening. A vegan menu option will be available. Tickets here
