Gather. Modern Grange Events

Soirée under the Stars with Foreign Cinema

San Francisco’s Foreign Cinema creates an amazing experience: it pairs excellent films with beautifully executed bistro fare. Founded by John Clark and Gayle Pirie, this Mission District institution recently celebrated decades of service with a self-named cookbook of restaurant favorites.

We celebrate their long-term success with an hors d’oeuvres-driven dinner paired with a favorite film of our own. Join us to sip beer and wine, enjoy an array of eclectic small plates while we enjoy a classic movie screening in our Modern Grange.

Foreign Cinema’s eponymous cookbook will be available for purchase with your ticket, discounted from its list price of $40. To purchase, select “ticket and book” as ticket type.

Pirie and Clark have received multiple James Beard Foundation nominations for the “Best Chef: Pacific” and “Most Outstanding Restaurant” awards, and September 18th has been proclaimed “Foreign Cinema Day” in San Francisco in honor of the restaurant’s impact.
