Summer is (unofficially) here. Which means it’s time for warmer weather, long summer nights, and al fresco dinning. And what better way to experience it all than with an outdoor movie? Street Food Cinema’s got you covered. All. Summer. Long.
“Launched in 2012, Street Food Cinema is more than just an outdoor movie. It’s an experience,” writes the company’s website. “Bringing together the best in pop culture films, gourmet street food and progressive new music, Street Food Cinema reinvents the traditional movie going experience – al fresco style. Every element is carefully curated to develop the unique atmosphere that makes audiences want to come back again and again.”
And boy, does it.

But that’s not all. Each movie-going experience features varying gourmet food trucks, fresh talent, and boisterous hosts, which keep you entertained throughout the evening.
