Thank you, Chipotle -- and not just for your giant burritos.
The chain is sponsoring a free screening, tonight at 7:30 p.m., of the newest watchdog documentary, Food, Inc. at the Harkins Camelview theater in Scottsdale. It's first-come, first-served, so get there early.
The film comes from co-producer Eric Schlosser, who has some experience in this area -- he was the author of the bombshell book Fast Food Nation. Directed by Robert Kenner, Food, Inc. is an expose of the food industry, and it has been critically acclaimed nationwide for its groundbreaking material.
After the first, free showing tonight, the film will be playing regularly at Camelview. So, get in line and get informed.
