Classics & Cocktails: MOONRISE KINGDOM

Watch Trailer Director: Wes Anderson

Due to rain in the forecast, this event has been postponed until Sunday, June 25th. Same time, same place, same tickets.

This week’s cocktail is a nod to the New England setting of this week’s Wes Anderson tale. The Cape Codder is known as the Most New England cocktail! A refreshing mix of cranberry, vodka and lemon juice, served tall over ice! Originally it was known as the “Red Devil”, just don’t call it cran & vodka!

Who can resist a Wes Anderson film? Not us! Join us on Friday, June 23rd at 7pm for MOONRISE KINGDOM (1965). Admission is $8. Drink prices vary.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness.

Along with the specialty cocktail, we will have a full menu of wine, local beer and local ciders.

Classics & Cocktails is moving up!

We are thrilled to announce that our summer series is moving to the rooftop of the Athens City Parking Garage.

The dates will stay the same but the show times will be later. We will begin seating at 8:00 and the movies will start about 9:00 when the sun is down.

We will be using DORA to continue to offer themed cocktails! You can pick up your DORA cup and cocktail curbside at the Athena on the way to the parking garage. We will also have runners so you can order drinks and concessions that will be delivered to you on the rooftop!

Please consider purchasing tickets to these events. It is a great way to show your support for the Athena during our temporary closure. It helps us keep our staff employed and bringing movies to Athens.
