What’s in a name? That which we call a rosé — one of many drinks to be consumed at Nitehawk’s Film Feast. Venture back to 1996 and 1597 simultaneously with a screening of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, in which Hawaiian-shirt-clad Montagues and Capulets, warring mafia empires, quarrel, rave, and conduct forbidden affairs in Southern California — all in iambic verse. Murray’s Cheese offers food and beverage pairings for five key points in the movie as it unfolds. So when “Romeo Is Banished,” you’ll have in front of you red-wine-braised pork, gorgonzola cremificato, and polenta au jus. For what love does not conquer, there’s Champlain Valley Triple Crème Cheese (infused with Mast Brothers chocolate) and absinthe punch. In fair Verona, Verona Beach, or Brooklyn, there’s no better way to kick off Valentine’s week.
