Outdoor Cinema Food Fest: Food Trucks + DeLoreans
There are only a few chances left to get in on the Outdoor Cinema Food Fest - the dual-themed event that's been uniting food and film lovers alike all summer - before it comes to a close for the season at the end of the month.
This weekend the Fest celebrates the 25th anniversary of Marty McFly's trip to 1955 suburbia in Back to the Future. (Note: Back to the Future Part II is set in 2015. Does that mean flying cars and hover boards are only 5 years away?) Eight food trucks will be on hand for dinner that night including Grill 'Em All, Dante Fried Chicken and Shrimp Pimp.
Halloween weekend, which will be the Fest's final for the year, will feature two nights of film and feed, showing a pre-socially-networked Jesse Eisenberg in Zombieland on Saturday, October 30th and classic thriller The Shining on Sunday, October 31st. The jury's still out on whether Jack Nicholson is scarier in this movie or as the Joker. No word on which food trucks will be present those nights, but the lineup will be announced via Twitter on Monday, October 25th.
