Great Food Scenes From The Movies
The 82nd Annual Academy Awards are this Sunday, March 7. As part of our monthly food hour, we'll explore how food is used in movies.

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards ceremony is Sunday, March 7th, at 8:30 p.m. UCSD's ArtPower hosts a special Oscar night event on Sunday, March 7, at 4 p.m., at the LOFT at UCSD.

Maureen Cavanaugh: Ever watch a movie and wonder longingly what are they eating? It's not just people that look good on screen. Food can look absolutely delicious. It can also move a story along, help the characters fall in love, make a great weapon in a fight and bring everyone home for a happy ending.

In honor of this weekend's Academy Awards show, we are devoting our monthly food hour to "food in the movies."

Guests

Caron Golden, food columnist for SDNN.com and author of the blog San Diego Foodstuff.

Beth Accomando, KPBS Film Critic.

Rebecca Webb, film curator for ArtPower! at UCSD.
