Street Food Cinema Launches Season 7

Summer's only a few months away, so what better time is there to start making your summer viewing plans now. Sure, you can rest easy in a nice air conditioned theater at your local multi-plex. But how about something more interesting? Something more social? And something that's a bit more interactive for the whole family? Street Food Cinema could be the experience you've been looking for. Season 7 of this Southern California favorite launches Saturday, April 28th, with the 25th Anniversary screening of director Richard Linklater's Dazed & Confused at the LA State Historic Park.

Often, there are special gust appearances at the Street Food Cinema, and for this awesome ode to the unique times of 1970s high school, actors Sasha Jenson (Don) and Wiley Wiggins (Mitch) will be on hand before the screening for a Q&A at 8:30pm. Access to the screening area at the park begins at 5:30pm, and live music will be performed by the group, Reckless at 6:30pm. As ever, food trucks will be on hand to feed the crowd. Street Food Cinema is starting the season with a boat load of food truck favorites such as Baby's Badass Burgers, Belly Bombz, Cousins Maine Lobster, Keep it C'asian, Okamoto, Pinch of Flavor, Prince of Venice, Richeeze Melts, Sabores de Mexico, The Shrimp and Taco Stop, Spitz, White Rabbit, Word of Mouth, Dream Donut, Recess Truck, and more!

The 7th season of this widely popular summer series offers so many exciting titles, including recent 2018 Oscar nominees Get Out and I, Tonya on May 5th, The Greatest Showman on June 16th, Lady Bird on July 21st and Coco on October 27th. However, I'm particularly excited about the anniversary screenings. In addition to Dazed & Confused the celebrated films set to screen are The Land Before Time on May 19th, The Big Lebowski on June 9th, Mrs. Doubtfire on June 16th, Stand and Deliver on June 23rd, The Sandlot on June 30th, Grease on July 21st, Casablanca on August 25th, The Wedding Singer on September 1st, The Nightmare Before Christmas on September 29th, and the original cult classic Halloween on October 13th. That's a pretty impressive schedule that takes advantage of Southern California's great whether clear into Fall.

Street Food Cinema is LA's largest outdoor movie experience, combining (for the most part) family friendly outdoor movies, street food, audience games, live music and more. The 2018 season is 27 weeks long and includes 11 locations from all over LA with more than 50 fantastic events! You really should take advantage of at least one screening. If you do it early enough I have no doubt you'll be back for more. And just think of the memories you'll create watching your favorite old movies with friends and loved ones in such a memorable setting.
