Haven Brothers Movie Screening

October 23, 2014 @ 8:00 pm

“The Original Food Truck,” Haven Brothers: Legacy of the American Diner will be screened at Jane Pickens Theater on October 23. This film tells the story of Haven Bros. Diner, the oldest operating diner on wheels. The original fast food, the first food truck owned by a woman, this late night lunch cart has diligently served patrons for over 120 years.

Located in the birthplace of the American diner, Providence, RI, the documentary centers around the fact that Haven Bros. was almost lost to the modernizing of Providence. The diner was moved from its reserved parking spot next to Providence City Hall, and this was considered blasphemy to its loyal followers.
