Join us for a movie screening accompanied by a delicious dinner served buffet style
About Movie Nights
Each month we screen classic movies with an Italian or food theme, or something that sounds just plain fun to watch. Movies are shown on our big screen TV in the cafe and accompanied by a simple buffet dinner. Admission is $25 per person and includes the movie, buffet and a glass of wine. Additional wine or food may be purchased from the cafe or wine cellar.
The dinner buffet is opened at 7:30pm and the movie begins after all guests have served themselves and been seated, usually by 7:40. Seating is not assigned and guests are welcome to arrive early to choose seats and to enjoy an aperitivo or appetizer from our cafe. All guests planning to consume alcohol must have valid government-issued identification. Menus are subject to slight change due to market availability. A vegetarian option may be subsituted upon sufficient notice.
All of our events are ticketed events with limited seating. Tickets are purchased in advance, on a first-come first-served basis until sold out. Events at Via Umbria are unique and human scale experiences that are carefully crafted to create an outstanding and memorable dynamic. By requiring pre-purchase of tickets, we minimize the frequency of no-shows and ensure that we create the best possible experience at the best possible price for what we offer.
Each month’s tickets are offered for sale all at once, through our monthly event calendar, which is typically posted at least a month in advance. We provide advance notice on Facebook and Twitter a few days before posting of a new calendar. Subscribers to our newsletter are given an exclusive 24 hour pre-release opportunity to purchase tickets. For most events, the maximum number of tickets that can be purchased in a single transaction is 6, although larger groups can attempt to make multiple separate purchases. Event buy outs and private events are also possible. Please contact us if you are interested in more information.
Tickets are not refundable and cannot be exchanged for a different date or time, but they are transferable to other people. Think of it like buying a ticket to a concert, baseball game, or movie. Ticket prices do not include a 10% DC Meals Tax, which will be added to your purchase, or gratuity, which is at your discretion.
