Calling all wine snobs. On Feb. 15, the Inlander is getting romantic at the Garland Theater, pairing a screening of the Tina Fey-Steve Carell comedy Date Night with some delicious local wines. It's what we call Sips and Cinema: It's a lot like our regular Suds and Cinema, but we're swapping out the hops for grapes this time.

Our friends at Horizon Credit Union will be sponsoring the event (and providing free popcorn), and Spokane's Maryhill Winery will be pouring some of their finest blends. You can win prizes, too: Either a date night package including Spokane Symphony tickets and a $100 gift certificate to Bonefish Grill, or a couple of annual Garland passes.

Released in 2010, Date Night stars Carell and Fey as a boring suburban couple whose attempts to disrupt the tedium of their marriage leads to their being mistaken for mob informants. Mila Kunis, James Franco and Mark Wahlberg round out the supporting cast.

Tickets for our first Sips and Cinema event are $5 and can be purchased at the Garland's box office now. Doors open at 7 pm, with the film starting at 8 pm.
