It’s a beautiful Saturday evening on Halloween night in Los Angeles. The weather couldn’t be more perfect. Many of the people walking around the streets are wearing their costumes, masks, and big smiles. It’s about a half an hour before sunset and you can feel the Halloween spirit and a buzzing energy in the air. The Street Food Cinema outdoor movie festival is often held in Exposition Park near the L.A. Coliseum & California Science Center. Attending a Street Food Cinema event is always amazing, but Halloween night is especially exciting. Moviegoers and Halloween partiers alike enjoy a variety of delicious gourmet “food truck” style eats and a popular movie, under the dark, autumn night sky. This festival is currently the largest outdoor movie series in Los Angeles, and likely the biggest in the world of it’s kind. – they have hosted over 100’s of events at 11 different locations since it’s inception.
For Halloween, the movie being presented for the festival was very appropriate – Shaun of The Dead, a witty but gory satire; featuring lots of laughs and of course a creepy zombie apocalypse. Over a thousand people lay their blankets and chairs out on the cool grass, grab a bite to eat at one of the many food trucks and enjoy the gorgeous sunset. The band performs, the Halloween costume contest is presented and judged and then, the main event – Shaun of The Dead. The picture quality is brilliant, along with incredible surround sound. The eight speakers provide such great sound you will literally believe that the sounds in the movie are real. The sirens in the movie made heads turn, more than once!
