Street Food Goes to the Movies

Check out Street Food Cinema this summer.

Has it really been 30 years since Tom Cruise slid across his parent’s hardwood floors in a dress shirt, socks, Fruit-of-the-Looms, and a pair of Ray Bans? Street Food Cinema, presented by Moviefone, is celebrating the 30-year anniversary of Risky Business—the original and much wilder Home Alone—at Exposition Park for its outdoor movie series catered each Saturday by L.A.’s top gourmet food trucks.

The summer series kicked things off last Saturday with a showing of Stand by Me, with food trucks galore, and Corey Feldman’s rock band—yes, there’s live entertainment as well each Saturday night.

This Saturday’s menu includes the Korean-Brazilian-Mexican inspired offerings by Bool BBQ, George’s Greek, Argentine fare by the Combalache truck, gourmet pizzas by Urban Oven, Perks Up Coffee, and more. Gourmet trucks are here to stay, and creative events like this are the perfect venue to showcase and utilize one of the great traditions of Los Angeles: traditional loncheras, and gourmet trucks.

Upcoming films include Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Swingers, Jaws, and double feature of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and Skyfallis there a martini truck we can pull together for this one?

Street Cinema happens every Saturday night (with an extra family night added on Sunday, June 9) until August 17—doors open at 5:30 p.m., music begins at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts around 8:30 p.m., or at sunset.

Get out there this Saturday for some “Old Time Rock N’ Roll”, Tom Cruise as a teenage pimp, and the best reason to watch Risky Business again and again—two words: Rebecca DeMornay.
