Directed by Lasse Hallström and starring: Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, Alfred Molina, Lena Olin and Johnny Depp. The Film Food Club returns with a decadent evening of French cuisine and chocolate box romance, as The Electric Cinema in Station Street teams up with Le Truc  restaurant. Guests can enjoy a delicious French meal, followed by a screening of the romantic drama Chocolat, starring Juliette Binoche as a woman whose decision to open a chocolate shop in a small French village shakes up the local community.

The evening runs as follows:-
5.00pm - Meet at Le Truc restaurant at the Arcadian Centre for your starter and main course.
7.00pm - Move from Le Truc over to The Electric Cinema, where the film (beginning at 7.30pm) will be accompanied by a French cocktail and an assiette of chocolate goodies as dessert.
