More Info IMDb

Marie Antoinette is famous for uttering the phrase, “Let them eat cake,” and at October’s Afternoon Tea, we will gladly heed her advice. Feast on delectable baked goods while gorging on the sumptuous costumes and sets in Sofia Coppola’s exploration of the rise and fall of France’s ill-fated queen. This vivid film makes it easy to covet Marie Antoinette’s (Kirsten Dunst) luxurious lifestyle, exquisite gowns and adorable puppies, but it also makes you appreciate the virtues of your own situation (such as having a head). Sure, this screening doesn’t include diamond tiaras or horse-drawn carraiges, but we guarantee you’ll be treated like royalty, minus the whole guillotine thing. Join us for an afternoon of opulence, illicit romance and a drool-worthy amount of shoes as we take a cinematic trip to historic Versailles. Powdered wigs encouraged. (Sarah Pitre)

In addition to tea and treats, you'll have the chance to win fine French fancies from Hopper Deco and a four tiered mini "Death in the Afternoon" tower cake from BOLO Patisserie!
