Californian, Mediterranean


Maximum Capacity: 400

Foreign Cinema is proud to offer several distinctive spaces for private events of up to 400 guests, ranging from passed hors d'oeuvres and cocktails to formal, seated events, day or night, any day of the week. Our chefs tailor the menu to each event, matching seasonal and market availability with guest preferences and Foreign Cinema's unique style of California/Mediterranean cuisine. Our wine director can recommend wines from our extensive wine list including over 200 selections primarily from California, France and Italy. Foreign Cinema is an ideal and festive spot for social events, such as cocktail parties, special occasions, rehearsal dinners and weddings. We have also proven to be a uniquely suited location for corporate events, ranging from cocktail mixers, celebration dinners, meetings and presentations, holiday parties, product launches and film festivals.
