If you were destitute and lived a life of servitude before winning the lottery, you probably wouldn't spend your earnings on a huge meal for your employers. But so it goes in the 1987 film Babette's Feast
, in which a lonely cook beats the ultimate gaming odds and uses her proceeds to make the ultimate eating experience. Charles Chocolates
will screen the film as part of its free summer movie series this Friday, August 14, in the factory parking lot (6529 Hollis at 65th in Emeryville). Hot chocolate, s'mores, and caramel corn with candied cacao nibs will be on sale starting at 6:30 p.m., with the film beginning at 9 p.m. Bring something to sit on and something to keep you warm.
