Cinema these days seems to have abandoned the visual for the visceral—going to the movies can be more of an amusement park ride than a feast for the eyes.
Never in Bollywood. In Hindi films, the color alone blows you away and makes you happy, just like the fragrance of Indian food.

Friday night, February 15, you can experience both: Saffron Valley is partnering with this season’s Utah Presents: after a 6 p.m. dinner—chaat, curries, kebabs, vegetarian or not—at the Sugar House restaurant, the show, Bollywood Boulevard, commissioned by Lincoln Center and portraying a history of Hindi cinema, starts at Kingsbury Hall. Expect live music, dance and film. And lots of color.

Performance tickets start at $20; dinner is $20 per person.Tickets for both the performance and the dinner are available at 801-581-7100 or utahpresents.org.
