San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
People love great movies. They also love great meals. We combined the two for a series of unforgettable events. Each of the food-themed movies in this series is paired with a one-of-a-kind meal from the wildly talented, and much celebrated, chefs at the Alexander Hotel. That’s right, this year, we’ve teamed up with our pals at the Alexander to host this year’s Film to Fork series. Dinners will be served in the Market Table and movies will screen right next door in the IMOCA gallery.
Date night anyone?
SUPERMENSCH: THE LEGEND OF SHEP GORDON
In his directorial debut, Mike Myers documents the astounding career of Hollywood insider, the loveable Shep Gordon, who fell into music management by chance after moving to LA straight out of college and befriended Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix. Shep managed rock stars such as Pink Floyd, Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass and Alice Cooper, and later went on to manage chefs such as Emeril Lagasse, ushering in the era of celebrity chefs on television. Stuffed with fantastic archive footage the film traces Shep's transformation from the 1970's hedonist to today's practicing Buddhist yearning for a family of his own.
