Summer in Los Angeles means outdoor movie screenings, and Eat|See|Hear is one of the longest running series bringing those types events in the region. Each Eat|See|Hear event features dining options from a rotating selection of 130-plus food trucks, a different local band playing before each movie, and a dog-friendly environment that provides water bowls and biscuits for each canine attendee! Screenings take place at a variety of iconic venues around the city.
ESH recently announced its 2018 schedule and it’s loaded with an array of classics, including The Big Lebowski, Hitchcock’s thriller Rear Window, E.T., 1969 biker film Easy Rider, The Princess Bride, Mel Brooks’ audacious comedy Blazing Saddles, Kevin Smith’s Clerks, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights, and much more.
Venues for this year innclude The Autry Museum in Griffith Park, La Cienega Park in Beverly Hills, Centennial Square at Pasadena City Hall, North Hollywood Recreation Center, the Santa Monica High School Memorial Greek Amphitheater, and Los Angeles State Historic Park in Chinatown.
The 2018 series launches on May 5 with Despicable Me at North Hollywood Recreation Center and continues every Saturday at various venues through September 15. For comfort’s sake, you’ll want to bring pillows, cushions, blankets, or a low chair that doesn’t block the view of the person behind you.
General admission starts at $14, while “fashionably late” tickets, at $23.15 each, can be purchased in advance if you’d rather not deal with waiting in line. Tickets for kids between 5 and 12 begin at $8, while kids under 5 are free.
You can catch out the full lineup of ESH events below. And remember if outdoor movies are your thing you can also take a look at Street Food Cinema, Rooftop Cinema Club, and the still TBD Hot Tub Cinema Club.
