The distance between Catalyst Restaurant and Kendall Square Cinema is more than 100 feet, but a pack of guests at the restaurant were happy to walk to the movie theater for a Monday-night preview screening of the new Lasse Hallström film, “The Hundred-Foot Journey.” Locals invited to the special showing of the film started with a reception at Catalyst, where chef William Kovel (above right, with Saba Wahid of Framingham) served up snacks such as vegetable naan, lentil pancakes, and chickpea vegetable curry. The group then walked over to the theater to see the film, which is about an Indian restaurant that opens up near a celebrated establishment in rural France. It stars Helen Mirren, and has its wide release Aug. 8.
