Last year we were the trail blazer – this year we are one of the headline acts of the 2020 Hinterlands International Rural Film Festival, which is taking place at special venues in Skipton from May 14 to 17.

Not only will we be showcasing the hilarious Academy Award winning comedy drama, Sideways, starring Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church, but in keeping with the film’s entertaining ‘road trip’ to the Santa Barbara wine country, we will be wrapping the unique screening around a delicious three course meal created by our own award winning executive head chef, Paul Cunliffe.

Take your seats in our stylish restaurant on May 15th at 6.30pm for a Californian inspired meal and suggested wine pairings (for an additional supplement) before being escorted to our private space, The Lawrence for the film, where a full bar and discreet table service will continue. This extraordinary gastronomic and cinematic experience is just £35 per person.

Sideways, which won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay tells the story of Miles Raymond (Giamatti), a divorced, depressed, unsuccessful writer and wine aficionado who takes Jack Cole (Haden Church), his actor friend and former college roommate, on a week long road trip through the Santa Ynez Valley wine country – just as he is about to take his own trip down the aisle… Alexander Payne’s sharp acerbic script is a treat to behold as the pairs’ hopes and dreams begin to unravel.
