After sneaking into a few cider cellars and darting across some chicken farms, the animals from CULT Cinema & Bar have rounded up a feast of epic proportions, and they've called in the pros to help prepare the meal. For this special event screening of FANTASTIC MR. FOX, tuck into a Bluebonnet Barbecue pulled smoked-chicken bun or a smoked Jackfruit bun, and indulge in some rare, handcrafted Daylesford Cider. Finally, you can eat like Mr. Fox without losing your tail!
TICKET INCLUDES: Admission to FANTASTIC MR. FOX, a meal by Bluebonnet Barbecue and a post-screening DJ set spun by local country musician legend, Fraser A. Gorman.

BLUEBONNET BARBECUE: Bluebonnet Barbecue’s head chef Chris Terlikar started his career in fine dining at the likes of Michelin star restaurant PUBLIC in New York, but a chance encounter with Hill Country style barbecue in Brooklyn led to a 12 week trip around Texas that revolutionised his style of cooking. Since moving back to Melbourne, Terlikar has made a name for Bluebonnet by developing a distinctive barbecue style which tips its hat to the thriving U.S. inspired food scene.
DAYLESFORD CIDER: Daylesford Cider produce a range of handcrafted ciders using the 17 varieties of English-heritage listed apples grown organically on their farm just outside Daylesford.
FANTASTIC MR. FOX: Fantastic Mr. Fox is the story of a clever, quick, nimble, and exceptionally well-dressed wild animal. A compulsive chicken thief turned newspaper reporter, Mr. Fox settles down with his family in a new foxhole in a beautiful tree—directly adjacent to three enormous poultry farms owned by three ferociously vicious farmers: Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. Mr. Fox simply cannot resist. Wes Anderson’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel is a meticulous work of stop-motion animation featuring vibrant performances by George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Michael Gambon, and Bill Murray.
