Dinner and a movie change

We recently learned that the release date for the movie originally selected for our final Dinner and a Movie of the season (the Best Picture winner, no less) has been pushed back until June. So we've had to change our selection to this movie based on a book about a father who buys a countryside zoo with his kids and tries to make a go of it. Alexander the Great is catering, so please join us for what is still sure to be a treat.
