In 2016, take a flight with Cannoli & Gun as we head to Bristol’s steak joint, Steak of the Art on Monday 18 January to show the classic spoof Airplane!, served with a choice of steak or fish.
Released in 1980, Airplane! (yes, the exclamation mark is part of the title) was a pitch perfect spoof on the disaster movies of the late 70s. Now, possibly in part due to the success of this film, that genre is long forgotten. It is however a testament to the classic nature of Airplane! that it remains today as funny as it was 35 years ago.
Starring Leslie Nielsen before he descended into self-parody, as well as Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges (Jeff’s dad), Airplane! has the highest jokes-per-minute rate of any film we know. And we know a lot of films.
To see the new year in with tasty, tasty humour, we’ve teamed up with the fine folk at Steak of the Art to bring you a fantastic choice of film-focused food to accompany your viewing.
Like the passengers aboard the Trans American Flight 209, you can have a choice of either steak or fish. “Ah yes, I remember, I had the lasagne.” Yes, even the vegetarians can enjoy a film-relevant food, with a delicious vegetarian lasagne.
The haddock is sustainable, line caught and local from ‘Fish for thought’ in Cornwall.
The rump steak comes from Warson Farm in Devon who specialise in animal husbandry and how to get the best from their cattle – before being skilfully prepared by Ian Warren’s Butchers. Both are served with chips.
On the night you can also buy themed cocktails and desserts in addition to the meal.
