Italian, French Fare Theme of Lighthouse International Film Society Events

Mar 05, 2017

For a creative, comical and classic parody on life, view the screening of “Spaghetti Man” presented by the Lighthouse International Film Society on Saturday, March 18, at 7 p.m. The showing will take place at the Long Beach Island Historical Museum, located at 129 Engleside Ave. in Beach Haven.

“If you love the 4 Big S’s: spaghetti, soup, super heroes and silliness, the screening of ‘Spaghetti Man’ at the Long Beach Island Museum is definitely up your alley,” said Christine Rooney, LIFS managing director. “In Mark Potts’ new film, ‘Spaghetti Man,’ all you need is a microwave malfunction and some spaghetti to save the day.”

The film focuses on Clark, a lackluster man who turns into a superhero who can fight crime with the power of spaghetti. But there’s a price to pay.

Audience members will have a chance to discuss the movie with the filmmaker during a Q&A over Skype following the screening. General admission is free for LIFS members and $5 for nonmembers. Tickets will be available at the door.

The public is also invited to join an evening of wine pairing and special dishes from the Bourguignon region of France made by Francis Pons, LBI’s only French executive chef, to benefit the Lighthouse International Film Festival. The fundraiser will take place on March 30 at 7 p.m. at Francis’, located inside A Little Bite of Italy in Surf City.

“These events are a great opportunity to mingle with filmmakers, festival organizers and fellow film enthusiasts,” said Rooney. “Join us at our fundraisers to learn the latest news on this year’s festival and a sneak preview of some of the films. Your support is appreciated.”

Tickets to the fundraiser cost $125 and must be purchased in advance online at
