Eat See Hear is a summer-long celebration presented by Showtime in which people can enjoy outdoor movies at different locations around Los Angeles. Just like the name implies, you have the opportunity to eat at a variety of food trucks, see a relatively old film on a big screen, and hear bands perform prior to the main screening.
Last Saturday, I went to see Almost Famous at the Los Angeles Trade Tech College with a bunch of my high school friends. The event was held at the top of a parking garage that had some impressive views of the city. Several food trucks were lined up for people to get something to snack on during the movie and the LA condom truck was also there giving out free puppies, if puppies were condoms.
There was the option to either buy general admission tickets or drive-in tickets and we chose the former. It was a good thing we did too since it didn’t seem like you got a good view in the drive-in and it would probably have been such a hassle to get out of the garage. I still want to experience watching a drive-in movie, but at a legitimate drive-in movie theater with larger screens.
Of course, Almost Famous was great. It’s fun seeing movies that you may not have had the chance to see in theaters when they first came out back on a big screen.
There are still a couple more dates available for other movies before Eat See Hear ends for the year on September 14. Check out the list and see if any of these films interest you:
- August 3 – Donnie Darko
- August 10 – Kingpin
- August 17 – Big
- August 24 – The Warriors
- August 31 – Pulp Fiction
- September 7 – Back to School
- September 14 – The Breakfast Club
Aaaaand, because I like you so much, here’s a link to an Amazon Local deal for you to get admission tickets at half price! All you have to do is click here!
I’m hoping to see The Breakfast Club in September. See you there?
