This Theater Serves Pork, Not Popcorn

Warm weather is running out for Harrys Water Taxi Beach, the aquatic venue that was the site of Meatopia and any number of other summer frolics. But the place has one more big event left in it: this weekends barbecue movie series, the last segment of the first annual NYC Food Film Festival. Starting tonight and running through Saturday, catch titles like the much buzzed-about (in BBQ circles, anyway) Barbecue: a Texas Love Story or Dial S for Sausage. All will be accompanied by real barbecue, prepared by Meatopia veterans Scotty Smith of RUB and Robby Richter of Big Island Barbecue. These are great films which happen to be about barbecue, says documentarian George Motz, one of the festivals organizers. The food, though, will make it a multisensory experience. After the jump, catch a sneak preview of Barbecue: a Texas Love Story.
