The Martini Matinees Are Coming

Merlins Rest is excited to invite you to a cultured afternoon of art and entertainment at the Pub! On Sundays we host our film matinee with martini and food specials. Our film showcase supports the local film community, its artists and tradespersons. We strive to offer a wide variety of feature films, shorts, music videos and animations.

Film makers are invited to host Q & A sessions after their showing to discuss their creative impulses. Take this opportunity to get your work shown and network with other film people in a fun, casual atmosphere… oh yeah, with martinis! We look forward to receiving your films. If you have any questions, please contact us through this website.


Merlins Martini Matinee is a film showcase that promotes and provides exposure to the works of Minnesota film makers. Submissions for Merlin’s Martini Matinee are open to Minnesota natives, residents and ex-pats. We will also accept submissions of work produced in or about Minnesota by out-of-state film makers.

Films to be shown must be completed works. Merlins Rest management is responsible for the selection and programming for the Matinee and may, at its discretion select films from outside of those submitted in order to round out the program.

More information will be posted soon.
