Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Cabaret presents: Chocolat

In a tantalizing tale about desire, single mother Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche) and her six-year-old daughter open a chocolate shop in a provincial French village. The townspeople are shocked when Vianne leaves her shop open during Lent, but her confections are too tempting for them to resist, and the local residents are coaxed into enjoying her delicious chocolates and soon begin sharing their secretes with her.  Fish On, March 4th, 6:30 p.m.
