Those in Hartford and Nashville still in a gluttonous mood after tonight’s Thanksgiving meal can feast their eyes on our rerelease of the 1985 gastronomic treasure Tampopo, an episodic comedy about a fledgling ramen chef desperately trying to perfect her recipe. Screening in a new 4K restoration that renders each glistening bowl of noodles with mouthwatering immediacy, this international art-house hit is one of cinema’s most unbridled celebrations of food and its communal pleasures. Be sure not to miss our theatrical run as it continues expanding nationwide, and if you’re in Washington, D.C., Chicago, Providence, or Winston-Salem, look for the film to open on December 2 at a theater near you.
