When: Sat., Jan. 2, 7 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 3, 2 p.m. 2016
If you're craving one last festive family get-together before Christmas break ends, those masterful musical chefs at the St. Louis Symphony have whipped up a sure-fire recipe for success. At 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (January 2 and 3), Pixar's Academy Award-winning film Ratatouille plays on the big screen, synchronized to a live performance of Michael Giacchino's score by our very own Grammy Award-winning symphony. The animated film tells the tale of restaurant clean-up boy Alfredo Linguini and his friend Remy, an ambitious young rat whose sophisticated palate takes him to the top of Paris' culinary world. Both performances are at Powell Hall (718 North Grand Boulevard; 314-534-1700 or www.slso.org), and tickets are $35 to $70.
