This Valentine's Day, enjoy the classic romance film, Like Water for Chocolate in the UICA Movie Theater. After the film, head to the Downtown Market where market chefs will put together a delectable six-course dinner inspired by the food featured in the movie complete with drink pairings. Treat yourself or your loved one to an unforgettable night of food-focused entertainment.


The youngest daughter in her family, the beautiful Tita (Lumi Cavazos) is forbidden to marry her true love, Pedro (Marco Leonardi). Since tradition dictates that Tita must care for her mother, Pedro weds her older sister, Rosaura (Yareli Arizmendi), though he still loves Tita. The situation creates much tension in the family, and Tita's powerful emotions begin to surface in fantastical ways through her cooking. As the years pass, unusual circumstances test the enduring love of Pedro and Tita.
