"La Grande Bouffe" film/meal on Tues.PM

Disclaimer: I've got absolutely nothing to do with The Screening Room!

OK, so I just happened to be reading through the fine print in the movie section of Time Out New York when I stumbled upon the fact that the early 70s film food gross-out, "La Grande Bouffe", is playing at The Screening Room tomorrow night (Tuesday the 20th)at 7 and 9:20 pm. Apparently, the chef at The Screening Room is preparing a menu based on the cuisine in the film and packaging it with a ticket to the movie for $56 (or you could just see the movie w/o the meal). Never seen the film, so I don't know what's on the menu, but this could be twisted fun.

Here's what I was able to dig up on the movie plot:

"A savage but grossly funny comment on today's society: a judge, a restaurant-owner, an airline pilot and a TV director decide that they have had enough of life; and that they will eat themselves to death. On the finest cuisine that all France can offer, of course; and attended throughout by a nude, delightfully demure and Rubenesque school-teacher as their kindly angel of death. "
