FilmColumbia celebrates the digital restoration of Dinner Rush on its 20th anniversary. Bob Giraldi, one of America’s leading directors of commercial and music videos (think Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’) happens to be a restaurateur as well. His Dinner Rush takes place over one night in a fictional Manhattan restaurant where conflicts arise in the kitchen that may or may not spill out onto the floor. A delightful cross between a thriller and a comedy with a surprise ending, the film is also memorable for its choice cast of New York actors headed by Danny Aiello.
