You know it’s summer when Eat See Hear begins and you can take your dog to the movies.
Eat See Hear brings outdoor movies, food trucks and live music to venues all around Los Angeles from May 4 to Sept. 14.
These aren’t first-run movies, but they are beloved classics like “North by Northwest,” “Casablanca,” the Coen brothers’ “Fargo,” “Thelma and Louise,” “Crazy Rich Asians” and the terrifying horror film “Get Out.”
Great venues throughout L.A.
You can see movies at the Santa Monica Pier, ROW DTLA, the Rose Bowl and the North Hollywood Recreation Center, among others. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; music begins at 7 p.m. and the movie at 8:30 p.m.
Tickets cost $8 for children and range up to $21 for “fashionably late premium seating.” Fees apply. In some areas, you may have to pay for parking — unless you’re very, very, very lucky with street parking.
The food trucks vary from event to event but run the gamut from BBQ and burgers to pita and felafel to lobster rolls and hot dogs — and the ubiquitous tacos. There are plenty of dessert offerings, too: pudding, cupcakes and ice cream.
Take your dog to the movies
Best of all, you can take your dog to these events. There are even free dog biscuits at the front entrance. Just be sure your dog is friendly, behaves well and stays on a leash.
These are crowded, noisy, distracting events so keep an eye on your dog and his or her comfort level. Don’t forget to bring water, a bowl, something soft for your dog to lay on and extra poop bags.
Schedules are subject to change on short notice, so be sure to check the website before you leave home with your dog.
