Last night I finally got around to seeing The Descendants, (hint: bring tissues) at Landmark Theater in Harbor East. I love the modern theater for many reasons, one of which, of course, is the fact that they have a bar and you can bring your cocktails into the theater, something we've written about extensively in the past.

But, another cool thing I noticed about the bar is they have movie-inspired cocktails on their drink list. Last night, the cocktails were based upon some of the Best Picture nominees. At first I thought I should get the Descendants drink, inspired by its Hawaiian setting, but wasn't really in the mood for a rum punch. So, instead, I got the The Iron Lady, a refreshingly tart mix of VeeV Açaí berry liquor with ginger ale, a splash of lime juice, and a float of pear juice.

Bartender Ginny Lawhorn told us that she rotates the cocktail list to whatever is popular at the movies. She's done Harry Potter drinks before and will soon do cocktails based on Project X, the newly released film about the ultimate high school party. (We joked about including light beer and cheap vodka).
