The Spitfire Grill: From Screen to Stage
On January 23, Ocala Civic Theatre will present a film screening of “The Spitfire Grill” at the Marion Theatre, with a VIP reception before the show at Ivy On the Square.
Join us downtown for a magical night on Tuesday, January 23 as Ocala Civic Theatre presents THE SPITFIRE GRILL: From Screen to Stage! OCT’s upcoming musical, The Spitfire Grill (live on stage Feb. 8-25), was inspired by the 1996 film of the same name. The movie, starring Allison Elliott, Ellen Burstyn, and Marcia Gay Harden, won the Audience Award at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival. It’s the tale of a determined young woman looking for a fresh start in a small town after a life of hard times. And now, it will light up the silver screen at the Marion Theatre for one night only as we celebrate our next show!
The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a reception for VIP guests. First, step around the corner to The Thirsty Cobbler for a signature cocktail celebrating the event. Then stroll next door to a private room at Ivy On the Square for a generous buffet of delicious hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. You’ll also enjoy live music featuring the talents of Diego Fuentes and Adam Pryor. After an hour of food and fun, it’s time to cross the street to the Marion Theatre. VIP guests will have reserved seating, along with a complimentary soda and popcorn. General seating begins at 6:45 p.m. Before the movie starts, the audience will meet the cast of OCT’s The Spitfire Grill and be entertained by a live musical preview of the show. Then at 7:45 p.m., the lights will go down and this hauntingly beautiful film will fill the screen!
VIP tickets to the event, including the reception and the movie, are $50. General admission to see the movie is $20 and includes a complimentary soda and popcorn.
