Dinner and a movie starts this Thursday at Pagoda Cafe_lowres

 

With the help of regular Donna Duplainter (Dallas Buyers Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), the Seventh Ward breakfast and lunch spot Pagoda Cafe (1430 N. Dorgenois) will host its first dinner and a movie night this Thursday, Oct. 2, with a screening of Paris Blues beginning at sunset (7:30 p.m.).

Before the movie, starting at 6 p.m., there will be hot plates for $10, with grill food like lamb burgers, marinated chicken thighs and roasted vegetables. The cafe will also have cold drinks available, popcorn and sweets. 

Dan Etheridge, co-owner of Pagoda, says the movie nights will take place the first Thursday of every month. It's BYOB (The "B" is for both beer and blankets), and the movie will be projected in the cafe's yard for all to see.
