And whatever you do, don’t forget to leave room for dessert, because what’s the point of venturing down memory lane if you don’t experience first-hand one of the incredible old-fashioned soda fountain floats, phosphates or one of the thickest milkshakes in town.

Movie: A Star Is Born at the Chase Park Plaza Cinema
One of the most anticipated remakes of the year is about the hit the big screen: A Star Is Born boasts the work of multi-talented actor Bradley Cooper, who also directed and co-wrote the film, along with the talents and star-studded power of Lady Gaga, Sam Elliott, Dave Chappelle and Andrew Dice Clay.
This release will be the third remake of the original film by the same name, produced in 1937. Its first remake was in 1954, starring Judy Garland and James Mason in its leading roles. Remade again in 1976 and starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, A Star Is Born was revised into a rock/pop musical for this era, garnering Streisand both a Grammy and an Oscar for the movies theme song, “Evergreen.”
Now, as we flash forward to 2018 for Cooper’s version of the film, we find ourselves entering the life of country musician/singer Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper), who has discovered—and is falling in love with—the young and talented singer/songwriter Ally (Lady Gaga). As Jackson feels the need to push Ally to reach her full potential, thus skyrocketing her own career, it seems that Jackson’s life and career are hitting the skids.
Set to hit theaters on Oct. 5, A Star Is Born is Chesterfield Lifestyle’s choice for the perfect date-night flick as it seems that this remake will spark the romantic side in all of us.
