October's edition of Third Thursday brings a partnership between The Nightlight Cinema, Akron Coffee Roasters, and Middle West Spirits to bring Downtown Akron the "Spoke and Reel" social.
Using the inspiration of Middle West Spirits finesse and Akron Coffee Roasters forte, the event will include artfully crafted cocktails with an Italian twist.
The Nightlight Cinema has carefully procured the evening's feature film, Bicycle Thieves, directed by Vittorio De Sica. The film portrays postwar Rome and the relationship between a father and son, embodying the greatest strengths of the Italian neorealist movement: emotional clarity, social rectitude, and brutal honesty.
Doors open at 7:00 PM.
Apertivo begins at 7:30 PM with a brief introduction to craft liquor and specialty coffee.
A special presentation on the influences of post-WWII Italian fashion will be given by historic fashion expert Jennifer Kidd at 8:00 PM.
Screening begins at 9:00 PM.
Two ticket options are available:
The Socialite: Choice of specialty cocktail, snacks, and fashion presentation. $15
The Cinephile: Choice of specialty cocktail, snacks, fashion presentation, and feature film. $25
