At the end of the night, we’ll serve up a food-inspired free screening to kick-off Copia’s new Cinema Under the Stars Summer Series!

We’ve got a limited number of tickets for purchase. Each includes a signature George Motz Burger, a beer (or soda), and a strawberry shortcake made by CIA chefs. Save some time and pre-purchase your ticket now!

Invite friends and family, enjoy a casual dinner together, and cross this delicious burger off your bucket list. Bring blankets or cushions and come early to stake out a prime viewing spot for the movie. It’s sure to be a great time.
