Directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason, this 1959 film is one of the most entertaining ever made. Filled with many of the themes and plot devices that Hitchcock used throughout his career, North by Northwest is fast-paced, glamorous, humorous and has many iconic locales and now classic moments summed up best by the line from one of the original movie posters – “From the killer plane in the cornfield to the cliff-hanger on George Washington’s nose, it’s suspense in every direction!”

Fueled by a love for classic movies and great food, Cinema Gourmet audiences have grown tremendously over the last several years. Because of the limited number of seats available for the food, talk and movie, audience members must purchase their tickets early.

22LimeRickBurn

EVENING LIME RICK BURN AND CANDLE LIGHT TOUR: NOVEMBER 17, 2018 – JANUARY 6, 2019

St. Simons Island, GA: Fort Frederica’s bleaching ruins dot the landscape where a thriving town stood. A place that was home to roughly 1,000 people is now largely quiet. The site remains difficult to comprehend; its stories shrouded in a mysterious history.

The burning of a lime rick will be the backdrop for an evening of storytelling and history. A lime rick of stacked logs with racks of oyster shells will be fired. The heat of the fire breaks down the shell into lime. This source of lime allowed Frederica’s settlers to build tabby homes that were so durable that ruins still remain. (Burning of the rick will depend on weather conditions)

Starting at 6:00 pm visitors should meet in the Visitor Center breezeway, where a short tabby making demonstration will take place, followed by the lighting of the lime rick and the candle light tour.

The candle lit tour features the stories of settlers and soldiers. Soldiers from the 42nd Regiment of Foot will demonstrate their military skills. Musket and cannon firings will highlight the stories of the fight for British rights to Georgia – and the colony’s survival. Frederica’s townspeople will be featured. Visitors can meet the citizens on the original lots where they lived and plied their trades. Visitors will glimpse the struggles that the settlers had to overcome.

Entrance for the event is free. Please meet the guide in the breezeway of Fort Frederica’s Visitor Center before 6:00pm when the program starts. For further information, please contact the park visitor center at 912-638-3639 or click here. Fort Frederica National Monument: 6515 Frederica Road, St. Simons Island, GA 31522.

TRIBUTE – A CELEBRATION OF THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND: NOVEMBER 30, 2018

Since its founding in 2013, Atlanta-based TRIBUTE has earned a reputation as the source for the authentic Allman Brothers Band sound around Atlanta and throughout the Southeast. Rigged with vintage equipment, they interpret the Allman catalog in such a way that these songs written in the ’60s and ’70s come alive again. 7:00 PM To 10:00 PM

If the band has learned anything from performing these songs, it is the realization that even though The Allman Brothers Band has shut down, their music maintains the same power over people just as it did 45 years ago. It is a phenomenon TRIBUTE gladly verifies every time they hit the stage.

TRIBUTE recalls that unique period in American rock, when psychedelia ebbed and The Allman Brothers Band informed us what jazz, rock, country and blues could sound like. Comprised of musicians with decades of performance experience, the members of TRIBUTE bring their shared love of The Allman Brothers Band to life when it comes time for hittin’ the note.

A Complete Guide to Thanksgiving 2015

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015
Thanksgiving Buffet on St. Simons Island

Celebrate Thanksgiving at The King and Prince

The holiday season is approaching quickly. Very quickly. In the grocery store last night, we noticed most of the magazine covers in the checkout lines are full of beautifully photographed dishes that are all screaming, “Thanksgiving is here, what are you making?”

Let’s be real. A lot of us have jobs; jobs that will require our attention the days leading up to Thanksgiving Thursday. On top of our regular busyness, not all of us are mini-Martha Stewarts. In fact, there are multiple sites dedicated to Pinterest fails for this exact reason. No one needs to spend 72 hours in countdown chaos worrying about every last detail. Is the turkey defrosted? Will my dressing taste just like my mom’s? Or will it be too dry? Will Aunt Edith remember to make the pie this time? Thanksgiving is about coming together with loved ones and giving thanks. Thanks for the family we have. Thanks for the friends in our lives. Thanks for all of the great things happening to us, around us, and for us. It’s a magical time when we come together to spend time, bond, love, and laugh. This year let us help you do just that.

It’s not a trick. You can have an amazing meal. With all of your family. Stress-free. Well…mostly stress-free, depending on how CrAzY your Crazy Uncle is. While keeping your kitchen clean. All you have to do is choose to celebrate it with us. We will happily set the table, cook the turkey, and clean all of the dishes so that you can relax and catch up instead of hanging out in the hot kitchen.
