Plate dinners will include vegetable or meat lasagne, coconut vegetable curry over rice (or with chicken), spinach and cheese or chicken enchiladas with Spanish rice, teriyaki chicken or Joe's meat loaf with macaroni salad and rice.
Those who prefer a restaurant meal may want to check out the Dinner & A Movie Promotion at Gannon's, which is located near the Celestial Cinema.
"The premise is simple," says Chef-owner Beverly Gannon. "Enjoy dinner with us and then stroll over to watch your movie at the Maui Film Festival's Celestial Cinema being held under the stars on the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Courses."
In addition, each confirmed reservation for Dinner & A Movie gets complimentary self-parking and each guest receives beach- chair seating in the reserved Gannon's movie section.
The promotion does not include movie tickets. Tickets may be purchased by visiting the Maui Film Festival website at mauifilm festival.com.
Reservations are required. Seating will be extended on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests are required to spend a minimum of $29 per person from the dinner menu in the Gannon's dining room or lanai, as available. The promotion does not apply to happy hour or the bar menu and is not valid with any other offers or discounts.
"Everyone should take advantage of all of our promotions going on at all three of our restaurants," says Beverly.
"Aloha Mondays are back at Hali'imaile General Store. Each person who brings in one nonperishable item to be donated to the Maui Food Bank gets 50 percent off their dinner entree.
"We also just relaunched our dine-around promo. Save 20 percent off your food bill at Hali'imaile, Joe's and Gannon's. Just dine at any one of the three and save the receipt. Bring the receipt to the next restaurant and get 20 percent off."
For reservations, call 875-8080 or visit GannonsRestaurant.com. "Get out and eat!" the celebrated chef says.
The Fairmont Kea Lani Maui Resort in Wailea will also offer specials during Maui Festival at Wailea.
For starters, guests who have a ticket stub or pass to Maui Film Festival will be entitled to buy one entree at K? restaurant and then receive the second one of equal or lesser value free.
Ticket holders may also receive a 25 percent discount on food and beverage at the Luana Lounge, located lobby level. The deli also has lounge chairs to rent for $8 per person, for the Celestial Cinema.
Want to stay over? Get 25 percent off rack rate when booking accommodations during the week of the festival. And, get 20 percent off at Spa Kea Lani during the film festival dates. The hotel also offers complimentary valet and self-parking for those who dine there.
In addition, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, Fairmont's Luana Lounge will set the stage for a pupu party, and the public is invited to be in on the fun.
It's because the Snorkel Bob Foundation will present an original work of fine art reef photography to the hotel for its "pono stance on protecting our reefs."
The hotel is being honored for taking down its saltwater aquariums as reef fish are being depleted. So come celebrate and enjoy pupu, a cash bar, schmoozing, casual good times and a special message from Neptune in the unveiling of the art.
