Hungry for one of the most intriguing movies of the fall? And want to dig into it several days before it hits the big screen nationwide? Me too – so join for a special advance screening of the new dark foodie comedy "The Menu" on Monday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. at the Marcus Majestic in Brookfield.

For those who haven't heard of it, "The Menu" stars Anya Taylor-Joy ("The Queen's Gambit") and Nicholas Hoult ("Mad Max: Fury Road" and Hulu's "The Great") as a couple headed out for a very fancy dinner, hosted at a very exclusive and very trendy restaurant on an isolated island. There, they discover the head chef (Oscar nominee Ralph Fiennes) has many more surprises on the evening's menu beyond just some exquisite amuse-bouches. 

While Fiennes' chef appears to have his knives out for his guests, those who've seen "The Menu" – directed by "Game of Thrones" vet Mark Mylod and produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay – on the festival circuit have found it quite tasty, with good buzz going into its nationwide release on Nov. 18. 

But why wait all the way until next Friday to see the new film when you could see it early with us!? To snag a free admit-two pass for Monday night's 7 p.m. sneak preview showing at the Majestic, 770 Springdale Rd., keep an eye on OnMilwaukee's Instagram, where we'll have a post about the contest today. Tag a friend in the comments, and you've got a chance to score a two-person pass for Monday's "The Menu" screening. That's all there is to it!

Hope to see you all at the movies on Monday! And be sure to bring your appetite for entertaining cinema!

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
