Food, movies, and music are three essential ingredients for a perfect L.A. summer night. Eat|See|Hear will provide just that in their fifth annual summer series, which includes popular flicks, live local bands, and some of L.A.’s best food trucks (including Bollywood Bites, Seoul Sausage, and Komodo). The festival runs from May though September in locations around the city and features classic films projected on a three-story-tall, 52-foot-wide inflatable screen. If you’re too excited to wait until the summer season starts, you can catch weekly Throwback Thursday Movie Series at The Laemmle NoHo 7 in North Hollywood throughout April. Otherwise, start planning for May:
