Hitting screens August 15th, CRAZY RICH ASIANS is a winning and worthy big screen adaption of author Kevin Kwan's global bestseller. It's also one of the best FOOD movies to come along in ages. Juicy dumplings, savory satay, bubbly champagne, and so much more… you'll want to devour everything that appears on screen. At participating Alamo Drafthouse locations this August you can do just that with the limited time menu of Asian-inspired eats and luxe cocktails – and, for that truly crazy rich experience, a four-course CRAZY RICH ASIANS Feast presentation complete with drink pairings.

Come let the cuisine amplify your CRAZY RICH cinematic experience. Here's a bit more from Alamo Drafthouse Chef Brad Sorenson and Alamo Drafthouse Beverage Director Bill Norris.

"CRAZY RICH ASIANS has some of the best food scenes in recent film memory," says Alamo Drafthouse Chef Brad Sorenson. "What's really fun is that we had the opportunity to not only create a specials menu but also an amazing coursed feast, both inspired by actual food in the film."

"For the feast, I coursed the menu to follow along with the movie. Avoiding spoilers, the meal starts with a shrimp & chicken satay marinated in chili. The second course is pork & ginger dumplings with a ginger & soy dipping sauce. To finish off the meal, there's a rice pudding made with lychee & green tea followed by ginger cookies shaped like mahjong tiles. Each course is served at key moments during the film for maximum effect, and each is served with a drink pairing to complement the flavors."

"The specials menu features many of these same or similar items but available à la carte, so you can mix and match (or even double-up ) as you wish: satay of white meat chicken roasted and served with green onions, pan-fried pork & ginger dumplings, and ginger shortbread cookies iced with matcha tea icing. Of course, all pair nicely with any of our CRAZY RICH cocktails."

Because no posh experience is truly complete without a refined cocktail. Our specials menu features three luscious, boozy tipples inspired by the film and its setting. 

"There's a wonderful scene in the film when Rachel and Nick first arrive in Singapore and they hit a market full of drool-worth street food," explains Alamo Drafthouse Beverage Director Bill Norris. "Singapore is knowns for having fabulous markets full of fresh produce and we wanted to highlight that alongside the lush tropical atmosphere, in our cocktails for the film." 

CRAZY RICH ASIANS opens August 15th. Tickets on sale now.
