It all seems relatively simple. People like movies. People like food. People like getting together. People like vampires. Well, maybe not so much that last one. So how does one harness people’s interests to deliver an experience unlike any other? All you need is top quality equipment, some creative genius, and a couple vampires hiding in a bat cave. Let me explain.
Street Food Cinema is an event company that delivers everything people desire in watching movies, and much more. The company is based in Los Angeles, the murder (film) capital of the world. They aim to bring many elements together to produce not just a cinematic experience, but a whole new meaning to the term “outdoor cinema.”
The drive-in movie began almost 100 years ago and was a massive hit among audiences across the nation in the 1950’s. Street Food Cinema has taken the outdoor drive-in movie experience and re-created it to fit a modern audience’s idea of a truly memorable event that keeps bringing people back for more.
Their biggest scale event is an overnight camping experience in which event-goers set up their camping gear and get ready for activities going all night. What’s beyond special, however, is their use of one predominant theme that ties every little detail of the event together.

They could simply just show the movie, but instead, they go above and beyond to deliver an experience beyond just the film. The entire event was designed around this vampire theme. They had a live vampire hosting a vampire training obstacle course, vampire teeth, a vampire scavenger hunt, 80s dance music videos, and event decorations that all tied into The Lost Boys theme.
Before the movie, there was even a live musical performance by G Tom Mac himself. G Tom Mac is the artist who wrote the theme song for the movie 30 years ago! After the performance, they hosted an interview with the musical artist and Billy Wirth “Dwayne” from the film. What a great presentation before the start of the movie!
Of course, there was plenty of street food to choose from as everyone gathers on the grassy lawn with their blankets and camp chairs, to spend quality time together while the vampires come out to play (on
So what can vampires teach you about outdoor movies? Once night falls, the party has only just begun. With a top of the line Open Air Cinema inflatable screen, the right audio equipment, and a vessel of imagination you can truly create a cinematic experience to be remembered.
Maybe it’s not just the vampires that people love so much,
