Alamo Chef Jason Donoho has created a menu as magical as this movie to accompany one special screening. Your $65 ticket includes admission to the movie, the menu (see below), complete with drink pairings by Alamo Beverage Director Bill Norris. Tickets are on sale now!

About the movie: 
Eminently inventive auteur Michel Gondry finds inspiration from French novelist Boris Vian's cult novel to provide the foundation for this visionary and romantic love story starring Audrey Tautou (AMÉLIE, COCO BEFORE CHANEL) and Romain Duris (THE BEAT MY HEART SKIPPED).

In a charmingly surreal Paris, Duris plays wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his pianocktail (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef, Nicolas (OMAR SY, THE UNTOUCHABLES, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST). When Colin learns that his best friend Chick (GAD ELMALEH, THE VALET), a fellow acolyte of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre, has a new American girlfriend, our lonely hero attends a friend’s party in hopes of falling in love himself. He soon meets Chloé (Tautou) and, before they know it, they’re dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance that Gondry rapturously depicts as only he can.

Mood Indigo was nominated for three 2014 César Awards: Étienne Charry (Best Original Music), Florence Fontaine (Best Costume) and Stéphane Rozenbaum (Best Production Design) and also stars Charlotte Le Bon (Yves Saint Laurent, To Reach the Clouds) and Aïssa Maïga.

"A visually enthralling fantasia" -Stephen Holden, New York Times
