Mouth-Watering Documentary Currently Screening At The River Oaks Theatre
Fans of pastrami on rye and great documentaries are in for a treat with the River Oaks Theatre’s continued screenings of Deli Man. The Montrose movie theater at 2009 W. Gray, known for its selection of art house and independent movies, is the best place in town to watch the film, which according to a press release studies how “delis were an integral part of every Jewish community in the first half of the 20th Century and raises the alarm on how their numbers are diminishing.”
Even more important is the fact that Deli Man has a large Houston component, centered around the Galleria-area Kenny & Ziggy’s, “one of the last and most authentic New York Jewish delicatessens,” as well as its spirited proprietor, Ziggy Gruber. The movie opened at the River Oaks Theatre on February 24, but will continue screening through at least Thursday, March 12.
