Please note that the October 19 event is now taking place at Exposition Park. Throughout the summer and fall, different musical acts perform before outdoor park showings of various films. Each show also includes audience games that are projected on the big screen. General seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Also in attendance is a revolving lineup of food trucks to supply moviegoers with sustenance.
Street Food Cinema
Over the course of the summer, Street Food Cinema rolls out more than a dozen events that showcase the greatest hits of the silver screen and the LA food-truck scene. When the gates open, guests spread blankets on the grass, pop open coolers, and, when showings are at Exposition Park, even settle down with their dogs—the park is pet friendly and broadcasts canine subtitles for each film. Live bands presented by The Viper Room play until dusk, when crowd-pleasing movies such as Edward Scissorhands and Reality Bites slide across the big screen. Meanwhile, a rotating food-truck schedule assembles a diverse curbside lineup, which might include short ribs from Kogi Korean barbecue or the gooey delights of The Grilled Cheese Truck.
Street Food Cinema's eclectic assemblage of food, music, and films has picked up attention beyond the park's bounds, snagging mentions on NBC4 and in the Huffington Post's Broke Girls Guide. It's also become known for its philanthropic work: each year the organization supports one designated local charity.
