Nostalgic for the days of rounding up the family for a night at the drive-in theater? Bring back the old days and the good memories by taking in a classic at Eat | See | Hear, a series of outdoor movie events combining food trucks, films and live music from local bands.
The series, presented by Showtime Networks, takes place at venues throughout Los Angeles and shows movies on a three-story-high, 52-wide inflatable screen with digital HD projection and state-of-the-art-array audio. The 2013 summer season kicks off Saturday with “Raiders of the Lost Ark” at Paul Revere Middle School in Brentwood.
Eat | See | Hear’s schedule includes fan favorites and recent releases like “The Princess Bride,” “Coming to America,” “Ted” and “Breakfast Club” in dog-friendly locations like Santa Monica High School, La Cienega Park in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles State Historic Park and Los Angeles Trade Tech College in downtown. Their full schedule is online and includes a “Christmas in July” event on July 13 featuring the film “Elf.” Events at the Los Angeles Trade Tech College and Paul Revere Middle School will be drive-in movie style, but blankets and extra seating are still recommended if you bring a large group.
Eat | See | Hear is also adding animals to the fun. In partnership with the Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles, who will receive a portion of ticket sale proceeds, a variety of animals will be available at each event for on-the-spot adoption.
General admission tickets are $10 and kids under 12 get in for $8. A limited number of “Fashionably Late” seats – premium reserved spots in a desirable area of the venue — will also be available online for $20. Parking varies at each venue, so check the website in advance before heading out.
