Wine and Film Snobs Unite

. May 1, 2015.

The Michigan Theater presents four stories about wine and wine production. A post-screening wine tasting offers viewers a venue for discussion and an opportunity to quench their wine-film induced thirst for the juice.  

Schedule: 

-You Will Be My Son, (May 6 ) is a French film about a father displeased with the notion of his son taking over his Vineyard. 

-A Year in Champagne (May 13) documents the story behind the world’s fanciest beverage—from its origin, to its rise as a status symbol. 

-Red Obsession (May 20) tells the story of the Bordeaux wine empire, and how the industry evolved to handle the increased demand of fine wine in China. 

-Sideways (May 27) is a lovable comedy-drama that follows two forty-somethings as they take a weeklong road trip to Santa Barbara wine country. 

 

7pm. Wednesdays through May 27 .
Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8463. michtheater.org
