Afternoon Tea: Howards End @ Alamo Drafthouse & Cinema


Following the artistic success of A ROOM WITH A VIEW and MAURICE, Merchant Ivory produced their third adaptation of an E.M. Forster novel, HOWARDS END, and it's still one of their most lavish and beloved films to date, earning nine Academy Award nominations and winning three (including Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actress for Emma Thompson).

Delving into issues of romance, infidelity, and class inequality, HOWARDS END tells the story of Margaret (Thompson), an upper-class English intellectual who becomes engaged to a wealthy widower, even as her sister begins a scandalous affair with a member of the lower classes. What transpires is a simmering series of feuds, driven by passion, jealousy, and hypocrisy, all centering on the house known as Howards End.

Visually elegant and textured, and featuring a top-notch cast led by Academy Award winners Emma Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, and Vanessa Redgrave, HOWARDS END is one of the great period dramas of cinema. Newly remastered in 4K and 5.1 surround sound, the film looks and sounds better than ever, providing the perfect opportunity to revisit this masterpiece on the big screen.

Your ticket purchase includes three servings of tea and the following treats:
• Cheddar Horseradish Puffs
• Truffled Deviled Eggs
• Goat Cheese & Raspberry Tart
