Roti and a Reel at the Suburban World Theater

The Caribbean Cultural Development of Minnesota is dedicated to the preservation and proliferation of Caribbean art and culture in our state. They live up to their mission through a variety of events throughout the year, but what better way to forget about the bitter cold of January than to join them for the final installment of their Roti and a Reel film series at the Suburban World Theater in Uptown?


This Sunday will feature writer/director Dickie Jobson's 1982 film, Countryman. It's about a woman who crashes her plane in Jamaica and the man who not only rescues her from the wreckage, but from a political coup involving local authorities and the drug trade. Music from Steel Pulse & the Toots, Bob Marley, and others make up the film's classic reggae soundtrack.

Roti is the term for Caribbean fast food and, in addition to the movie, the price of admission includes dinner by Marla's Caribbean Cuisine.

Tickets for Roti and a Reel are $20 and include movie admission and dinner; vegetarian options are available. Showtime is 5 p.m. at the Suburban World Theater (3022 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis). Purchase tickets online, or by calling the theater at 952.270.6700. Visit Caribbean Cultural Development of Minnesota for more information on upcoming music, dancing, poetry, and cooking events.
