Go behind the scenes of three extraordinary US restaurants in this acclaimed new documentary featuring Tucson’s own La Cocina de Gabby!


“A surprisingly personal and moving documentary about three very different types of restaurants.” - Bruce Ingram, Chicago Sun-Times

“Joseph Levy's sneakily stirring documentary opens up feelings you would never have expected from the premise — a portrait of three American restaurants.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

"Engaging and involving … Spinning Plates is a foodie phantasmagoria and something more - it becomes a group portrait of the restaurant business as well as an involving look at personal dramas that go well beyond the kitchen.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times


Spinning Plates is a documentary about three extraordinary restaurants and the incredible people who make them what they are. A cutting-edge restaurant named the seventh-best in the world whose chef must battle a life-threatening obstacle to pursue his passion. A 150-year-old family restaurant still standing only because of the unbreakable bond with its community. A fledgling Mexican restaurant whose owners are risking everything just to survive and provide for their young daughter. Their unforgettable stories of family, legacy, passion and survival come together to reveal how meaningful food can be, and the power it has to connect us to one another. (Dir. by Joseph Levy, 2013, USA, 93 mins., Not Rated, Film Arcade) Digital
