Provincetown's 6th Annual Chocolate Festival is Highlighted by a Special Screening at Waters Edge Cinema

Waters Edge Cinema holds a benefit screening of
Chocolat tonight only, 5 PM at Whalers Wharf
When a woman and her young daughter open a chocolate shop in a small French village during Lent, the Roman Catholic inhabitants of this little hamlet find their unbending views on morality are flexed a bit as they succumb to the pleasures of these sensual confections. Directed by Lasse Hallström (Cider House Rules,) Chocolat was named one of the best pictures of the year 2000 by the L. A. Times and was nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Johnny Depp, Alfred Molina, Academy Nominee Lena Olin and Academy Award Winners Juliette Binoch and Judy Dench star in this delightful film that is much more than a romantic comedy.

There will be one screening only, at 5 PM this evening (Saturday, April 13th) at Waters Edge Cinema in Provincetown. It can be a little hard to locate this theater if you've never been there. You'll find it at 237 Commercial Street, on the second floor of the Whalers Wharf, although you'll press button number three if you take the elevator.
"A Taste of Chocolat" promises to be a grand affair beginning with the film at 5 PM, followed at 7:15 PM by a special chocolate tasting hosted by The Purple Feather, featuring a variety of chocolates from around the world. This event is a collaboration between The Purple Feather, hosting their 6th annual Spring Chocolate Festival, and the Provincetown Film Society, creating community through film. Tickets are $26, giving you admission to the film and to the chocolate tasting, with a portion of the proceeds going to the film society. You can also get tickets for the tasting only. Tickets are limited and will likely sell out. You can also just attend the movie.
The Provincetown Film Society brings a tremendous variety of independent features, shorts, documentaries and international films to the tip of Cape Cod year round, and provides screening opportunities for local filmmakers and students, not to mention bringing us the Provincetown International Film Festival in June each year. You can support the society's mission by attending "A Taste of Chocolat," and by becoming a member of the organization.
Other events of the chocolate festival include a demonstration by Dutch Chocolatier Paul Kearns, and a scavenger hunt, with a dozen unique chocolate sculptures hidden along Commercial Street. Winners will be treated to a two-night stay at the Surfside Inn, on the water in the East End, or at Sage Inn, nestled in the heart of Provincetown.
