Dinner and a movie? How about dinner inside a movie? At Monkey Town 4, artist Montgomery Knott's new installation at Exdo Hall, diners sup on gourmet food and wine pairings inside a cube whose walls feature works by eighteen local and national video artists. Denver native Knott debuted the original Monkey Town in Brooklyn a decade ago and just brought it to Denver, where it will run through early June. We sent photographer Marissa Shevins to a recent installment; keep reading for a taste of Monkey Town 4. See also: Paul Laurie sets the table for Silver Spork Social, an underground supper club. Monkey Town 4 offers seatings at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. every evening excluding Mondays through June 1; each seating has room for only 32 guests. "This is one of the most unique dining experiences you'll ever have. It sounds like hyperbole, but by the time our last run was almost over, we sold out every night," Knott says.
Tickets are $50 for a three-course meal on Tuesday or $80 for the five-course option served Wednesdays through Sundays. Find out more on Monkey Town's website.
