Now in its fifth year, LA’s unique traveling outdoor film live music and food truck weekly extravaganza (Eat|See|Hear) announced their Spring/Summer schedule for summer 2016 a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, no outdoor film series will be permitted to screen the Star Wars Trilogy. The resulting changes to the schedule are outlined below. Additionally, in memory of Prince’s passing, the final show of the series will now feature PURPLE RAIN, along with some very special guest musicians, that can’t be announced at this time.
Voted “Best Outdoor Movie Series” by Los Angeles Magazine in 2014, the Eat|See|Hear outdoor movie, food truck and live music series brings an evening of fun to the best Los Angeles-area venues each summer. The fifth annual summer series is presented by Showtime Networks, featuring up-and-coming bands from the local music scene, the hottest food trucks and the largest inflatable movie screen west of the Mississippi with the highest quality HD-projection featuring a 52-foot wide image and professional sound. Eat|See|Hear promises an enjoyable movie-going experience for everyone, including dogs. Each event is produced by LA-based Trailhead Marketing, Inc.

In order to make the live music portion even more interactive this year, Eat|See|Hear is partnering up with LA Music Blog to feature all the bands performing with hands on coverage.
Offering a quintessential Los Angeles outdoor experience for the whole family to enjoy with a picnic and live music, this is also a 100% dog-friendly movie-viewing environment, welcoming every dog with a free biscuit at the door. A portion of ticket sales at the end of each season goes to Best Friends Animal Society-Los Angeles in support of the NKLA initiative. Local rescue groups will be on site each week this summer with adoptable animals.
