What a delicious notion! Artificial Eye taster screenings for delectable Indian romance The Lunchbox really are taster screenings – audiences at the previews on Thursday 10th April will be supplied with their own ‘dabba’ – or lunchbox – containing a variety of sweet and savoury snacks, plus a drink, specifically matched to the film.

It’s a glitch in the running of Mumbai’s legendarily efficient dabba delivery service that is the starting point for the film starring Irrfan Khan and Nimrat Kaur. Lonely housewife Kaur is seeking to reach her negligent husband’s heart through his stomach. By mistake, however, her lunchbox arrives on the desk of a widower on the verge of retirement (Khan), sparking a gentle and tender friendship.

Thanks to edible experience experts Teatime Production,  ticket holders to the preview screenings of The Lunchbox will get to sample the tastes and aromas of Indian cuisine – as well as enjoy this thoroughly charming film.

The screenings are taking place in the following cinemas;

Curzon Mayfair
Curzon Richmond
Arts Picturehouse Cambridge
Duke of York’s Picturehouse Cambridge
