A comedy-drama film about back to basics cookery will be screened at a community arts centre.

Chef (15), starring Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman and Robert Downey, Jr, is being shown at the Atrium theatre, on Spenser Avenue, tomorrow at 7pm.

The film follows the story of professional chef, played by Jon Favreau, who quits his job at a popular Los Angeles restaurant after an altercation with a food critic.

He returns to his home town of Miami to fix up a food truck and revive his passion for cooking.

He reconnects with his ex-wife and invites their young son to join him in driving the truck back to Los Angeles while selling Cubanos in various cities along the way.

Tickets for the funny yet touching film cost £6 or £5 for concessions.

It is being put on by North Walsham-based charity Arts North Norfolk.
