What better way to spend a warm summer L.A. evening than enjoying some good food and music followed by a movie, all outdoors? Eat/See/Hear, a summer music, food and movie festival taking place each Saturday night throughout the summer at outdoor venues across the city, debuts May 10 and runs through Sept. 13, 2014.
The festival kicks off May 10 at Santa Monica High School’s Memorial Greek Amphitheater with 2009’s 500 Days of Summer, starring Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and rated PG-13. Some of the series features family fare; some does not. Other movies that are part of the eclectic series are Napoleon Dynamite, Rushmore, Office Space, The Big Lebowski, When Harry Met Sally, Pitch Perfect and American Psycho, to name a few. Details are available at the Eat/See/Hear website. Local bands will perform before each movie, and gourmet food trucks will be on hand to sell their specialties.
The series will rotate between locales including Santa Monica High, The Autry Museum at Griffith Park, Paul Revere Middle School in Brentwood, La Cienega Park in Beverly Hills and Will Rogers State Park in Pacific Palisades.
L.A. based Trailhead Marketing is producing Eat/See/Hear, with audio/visual supplied by Hollywood Outdoor Movies. Showtime Networks is a corporate sponsor. At each location, the movies will be shown on a three-story tall, 52-foot wide inflatable movie screen.
