Mom deserves more than just one day a year to show her you care, but here are some of the things happening around Central Florida to help mom have a very special day on this Mother’s Day.

Most moms love a classic movie, and when you throw in a brunch into the mix it just might make for a perfect Mother’s Day at the Enzian Theater in Maitland.

The elegant affair begins with the Sunday brunch. Be serenaded by a live band, while enjoying the buffet, which includes a carving station and fresh-squeezed juices.

Then you can fall in love with Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn all over again in the classic musical Funny Face.

About the film: Dispatched on an assignment, New York City-based fashion photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire) is struck by the beauty of Jo Stockton (Audrey Hepburn), a shy bookstore employee he’s photographed by accident, who he believes has the potential to become a successful model. He gets Jo to go with him to France, where he snaps more pictures of her against iconic Parisian backdrops. In the process, they fall for one another, only to find hurdles in their way.

Limited VIP tables are available for the event if you want to arrive at the event at your leisure. VIP guests also receive a bottle of champagne. The event itself is expected sell out.

Doors open at 11 a.m. The film starts at noon.

General admission tickets are $40, VIP couple admission is $120. Children, ages 6-14 are $25. Go to Enzian.org for information and tickets.
