Uchi Presents Rashomon

Sushi News: 

It's sold out! (http://www.originalalamo.com/online_tix/show_details.asp?show_id=2439 ) -- the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema blowout on Wednesday, March 9th, at 7pm. This is the gig of the century for lovers of fine Japanese food and cinema.

Whilst enjoying the brand new Alamo South Lamar Theatre (yappari!), with its stadium seating and state-of-the-art sound and visuals, you'll feast your eyes and ears on a restored 35mm print of Rashomon, the landmark film by Akira Kurosawa that won the 1950 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.

Meanwhile, at certain times during the movie, you'll be treated to a novel banquet course courtesy of Austin's uber sushi bar, Uchi (http://www.uchiaustin.com ). Are you going? Mochiron! Proceeds from the event benefit the Capital Area Food Bank (http://www.austinfoodbank.org )
