Foreign Cinema, the revered Mission district restaurant known for its drive-in movie ambiance, celebrated its 18th anniversary on September 28, 2017. The Venetian Carnival-themed bash hosted by co-owners/co-executive chefs Gayle Pirie and John Clark also served as a benefit for the Human Rights Campaign, which advocates for the LGBTQ community.
Guests enjoyed plentiful bites and special cocktails from Foreign Cinema while watching burlesque shows and entertainment by the world-renowned Heklina and performers from Mother who took over the restaurant and courtyard. Lavish decor by Gregangelo & Velocity Circus set the stage for an extravagant evening.
