Springfield, MO—To celebrate Earth Day, Slow Foods of Southwest Missouri is hosting two movies at the Moxie Cinema tonight, however Moxie management insists that the theatre food is indeed served quickly.
“No, no, you see there are two movies, Fresh and The Vanishing of the Bees that are dealing with the slow food movement. It has nothing to do with our service,” said a representative for the Moxie management team.
An inquisitive potential patron, Suzie Yumilla, said, “I’d like to go learn about this slow food movement, but I’m not sure I’ll have good service during the movies, I mean are they going to have to grow my popcorn while I wait for it?”
Nathan Spokelherb asked, “So if I go to see the movies tonight, will I have to grow my own food to sneak it into the theatre to avoid paying for snacks to nosh on?” Moxie management stressed, “No, no, no the movies are about slow food, not that we have slow food. How many times do we have to say this, seriously?”
Luther Northern, of Nixa, MO, expressed interest in the event so he could “know how to cook slow food like turtle and snail, y’know them animals that ain’t so quick but are easy to catch.”
Slow Foods was quick to point out that their efforts are about creating dramatic and lasting change to spread the word about food, organic farming and buying local, not consuming critters that can’t run. They encouraged those interested in “We’re Right Here” week to visit the Moxie tonight at 7pm and 9 pm or visit www.slowfoodswmo.com for more information or hit their Facebook page.
