A perfect way to enoy the last lingering moments of the summer, and culminating event of our 2012 Date Night series - an outdoor movie under the stars. Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" is a critically-aclaimed romantic comedy/fantasy set in the Paris of today and the 1920's. Winner of this year's Oscar for best original screenplay (and nominated for four other Oscars), "Midnight in Paris" stars Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdam. Rated PG-13.
The outdoor Patio Cafe will be open till 8:30 with a Hot Dog & Potato Chip special (while supplies last), along with regular offerings of soup, sandwiches and ice cream. In addition, there will be a concession with candy, popcorn, chips and beverages (cash only).
Proceeds from Movie Night admissions and candy concession will support the DBG Green School Program.

Midnight in Paris – What the critics say:
“Marvelously romantic. A credible blend of whimsy and wisdom”
-AO SCOTT, NEW YORK TIMES
“Exhilarating! Brims over with bracing humor and ravishing romance, but there are also haunting shadows. That alone makes it a keeper. Owen Wilson is pitch perfect. Marion Cotillard is superb.”
-Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE
“A joyous delight! In this beguiling and then bedazzling new comedy, nostalgia isn't at all what it used to be — it's smarter, sweeter, fizzier and ever so much funnier.”
-Joe Morgenstern, WALL STREET JOURNAL
“4 STARS. Prime Woody Allen — Insightful, philosophical and very funny.”
-Keith Uhlich, TIME OUT NEW YORK
