A Night On The Town, CIFF Style

September 30th, 2009 by Nathan Atnikov

It’s that time of year again – a time when dinner and a movie doesn’t have to mean a $12 hamburger and Transformers 2. The Calgary International Film Festival is in town, so your choice of fine films has no limits, and the convenient location of each theatre will find you surrounded by restaurants that can’t wait to impress you. This week, my dinner and a movie combo is set for Wednesday night at the Redwater Grille Bow Valley, and the 9 p.m. showing of Unmade Beds at the Globe Theatre.

Unmade Beds comes from the United Kingdom and director Alexis Dos Santos. The film follows Axl and Vera, to East Londoners winding their way through the city and crossing paths as they try alternately to find and forget their pasts.

The Calgary International Film Festival is just getting started, and AMEX VIP passes are still available. The passes offer you unlimited admission into every film, party and even the Opening Gala. For more information, go to calgaryfilm.com. Oh, and for more info on great dining opportunities, Avenue Magazine’s dining guide offers some nice options.

Check back later this week for my review of the evening!
