Roxy Cinema's much-loved Feast Your Eyes series enhances the cinema experience by serving up themed dishes to match classic films. On Sunday, May 2, 1980s science fiction action flick Escape from New York will get the culinary treatment with Coco at The Roxy creating a special dessert and cocktail.

The John Carpenter-directed film is set in the near-future of 1997, when a major war between the United States and Soviet Union is concluding and the entire island of Manhattan has been converted into a giant maximum security prison. When Air Force One is hijacked and crashes into the island, the president (Donald Pleasence) is taken hostage by a group of inmates. Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell), a former Special Forces soldier turned criminal, is recruited to retrieve the president in exchange for his own freedom.

The $40 ticket price includes entry to the screening and the themed treats. Cinema doors will open at 7.15pm for cocktail and dessert collection. The screening will begin at 7.35pm.
