ABOUT THE FILM:
Revel in a nostalgic look at a Midwestern institution where maraschino-garnished drinks, plentiful comfort food, and family atmosphere reign supreme. Chicago filmmaker Holly De Ruyter scours the hinterlands for an affectionate look at the still-thriving supper club. Present-day fans, owners, and connoisseurs voice their appreciation along with fears for the future in the face of corporate chain competition.
