Street Food Cinema's epic Season 8 launches April 27th, with a screening of the cult classic 500 Days of Summer, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The first screening of the latest season of experiencing films in the great outdoors is happening in the most perfect of venues for outdoor screenings in downtown LA: the State Historic Park in Downtown Los Angeles. The park is a terrific urban space with plenty of access through public transportation. The family friendly local opens its "doors" at 5:30pm, with live music from The Flusters at 6:30pm, and the movie starting at 8:30pm. The Food Truck favorites expected to be on hand include Astro Donuts and Fried Chicken, Boba Ni Taco, Cousins Maine Lobster, Phillyfornia, White Rabbit, DAfter’s Ice Cream, and more. The whole event is really a great way to celebrate spring in LA.
Per usual, iconic fan favorites are a part of the April months-long schedule, and each is celebrating an anniversary from 5th to 80th. Pulp Fiction, The Wizard of Oz, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy, Mean Girls, Guardians of the Galaxy, Office Space, Say Anything, Napolean Dynamite, Mary Poppins, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Little Mermaid, Fight Club, Up, The Matrix, and the ultimate double feature of Toy Story 2 & Toy Story 3.
