Downtown date nights

The Manship Theatre and Zolia Bistro at II City Plaza are teaming up for a fresh take on dinner and a movie. Every Thursday through the month of June, diners can enjoy a delicious Italian meal from a fixed menu at Zolia from 4 until 7:30 p.m., prior to heading to the Shaw Center for the Arts to take in a flick. At 8 p.m., attendees will settle into the cool comfort of the Manship Theatre to enjoy a classic film, such as The Princess Bride or The Graduate. The outing costs $25 per person, and tickets may be purchased in advance here.
