Street Food Cinema will begin a new season of weekend events where film meets food with a showing of the 1986 classic Stand By Me tomorrow at Exposition Park. The event company recently tweeted that Grilled Cheese Truck, Don Chow Trucks, Trailer Park Truck, Cousins Maine Lobster, Good Greek Grub, PerKup Coffee & Tea, Sweet Arleen's, and Green Truck are among those scheduled to provide food and drink options.
And, fittingly, the evening will start with a live musical performance by Corey Feldman, who was one of the four leads in the coming-of-age tale.
The movies slated to show in the oncoming weeks range in genre, era and subject matter. There's the cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, surreal comedy classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and a family-friendly animated film, with Escape from Planet Earth. Nearly halfway into the season, there wil be a double feature of ensemble dramedies: St. Elmo's Fire and Reality Bites. Newer movies — Pitch Perfect and Silver Linings Playbook — are also in the schedule.
During its run, Street Food Cinema will take place every Saturday at Exposition Park — although there is an occasional switch to other locations, such as Grand Hope Park and L.A. State Historic Park. The last date listed so far is August 17, with the showing of Skyfall, and more dates to the lineup will be added. Food trucks and musical performers will vary at each event.
At each event, the doors will open at 5:30 p.m.; the musical performance will take place at 6:30 p.m.; and the movie will be shown at 8:30 p.m. General admission is $10 per adult and $5 per child ages six to 12. More info on how to purchase tickets can be found at Street Food Cinema's website.
