Known around town as the “Breakfast Queen,” Ina Pinkney fed Chicagoans for thirty-three years, first out of a small bakery, then from her beloved breakfast nook in the West Loop. When Ina began suffering the effects of post-polio syndrome, she decided to close her doors. The documentary Breakfast at Ina’s offers a glimpse into Ina’s extraordinary life while chronicling the last days of the restaurant.

A Reuben by Any Other Name is a humorous look at the differences between Orthodox and Reform Judaism, seen through the differences between the New York and Los Angeles versions of the Reuben sandwich.
