Here is a home for the aficionados of the works of the eneffable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where the friendly shades of Dr Watson, Professor Moriarty (a changed man since he went over the falls) and the Stradivarius-playing, opium-smoking genius himself, the Great Detective, await your pleasure.

So meet Nicole at the reserved table for a fun trivia night.

French Film Festival - C'est la vie!

Palace Cinema Como, Como Centre, Level 1, Cnr Toorak Rd & Chapel St, South Yarra

It's a long weekend! So, join us for a Sunday night movie, C'est la Vie!, at the French Film Festival. Stay on afterwards for a bite to eat and/or coffee/hot chocolate/cake at Chapelli's.

The dynamic directorial duo behind the 2011 smash The Intouchables – Éric Toledano and Olivier Nakache – reunite for the Opening Night film C’est la vie!, in which a wedding threatens to erupt into an utter nightmare for the party’s cantankerous planner, Max.

Over a career spanning more than 30 years, Max Angély (Jean-Pierre Bacri, for whom the role was penned) has enjoyed a celebrated career as a caterer and event organiser. Today, it’s all hands on deck for Pierre and Héléna’s nuptials in a breathtaking 17th century French chateau.

As per usual, Max has everything precisely organised but, as the celebrations get underway, Murphy’s Law takes over, and his perfectly planned occasion risks disintegrating into a chaotic farce. Can Max and his team pull together to make Pierre and Héléna’s special day memorable for all the right reasons?

The Closing Night film at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, C'est la vie! is a carefully crafted, character-based rom-com loaded with witty zingers. A hypnotically jazzy soundtrack and top-notch ensemble cast – including Gilles Lellouche (The Connection, AF FFF2015) as the scene stealing DJ James – seals the deal on what is shameless fun from go to whoa.

The film will screen in French with English subtitles.

Afterwards, we will head over for a bite to eat and/or coffee and cake at Chapelli's.

Meet Selena and Anne at the box office at 6:00pm. The film starts at 6:30pm. The price is for cinema ticket only with all food and drinks at own expense.

If you wish to park at the Como complex, you can show your parking ticket and cinema ticket at the box office to get discounted parking.

If you already love Spanish cuisine, you won’t need convincing. Head chef Marc Albalate’s authentic Spanish dishes will take you on a gastronomic trip, and a changing seasonal selection offers something a bit different from your traditional favourites.

Beers come mainly from Spain as well as a few locals and Internationals, whilst wines are dominated by Spanish, Portugese and Chilean. They also have a few ciders to choose from as well.
