It was a sold-out crowd that settled into the seats at the Heights Theatre last night to watch the Audrey Hepburn classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and to hum along to the melody of "Moon River." The movie showing was sponsored by the Star Tribune's Taste section, the fourth in an occasional movie presentation that celebrates food in the movies (however briefly it appears!).
Prior to showtime, Harvey Gustafson was at the mighty Wurlitzer, pumping out old-time favorites, including such food classics as "Tea for Two."
One enthusiastic film buff included Veronica Min Wotipka, who came dressed in the manner of Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly: in short white fur stole and elaborate updo with a braid where Audrey's tiara would have been.
The three shows we've presented in the past include "Mildred Pierce," "Moonstruck" and "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." Have any favorite food moments in the movies or suggestions for future movies? Send them our way to firstname.lastname@example.org/taste. We will show another movie in October.
