Advance Notice. Outdoor Cinema Food Fest.

It's become nearly impossible to try and catch a Cinespia screening without waiting a few hours in the L.A. summer heat. But if you still want to catch a movie outdoors, you may have a chance at avoiding the annoying crowds (or at least the wait) by heading out to the brand-spanking new Outdoor Cinema Food Fest.

The name says it all, but basically this weekly event brings together two grand L.A. loves: outdoor movies and food trucks. Beginning this Saturday and continuing until the end of the August, the fest will be screening fun flicks like Swingers, The Breakfast Club and The Hangover, in addition to offering fare from some of L.A.'s most popular food trucks--so you don't even have to bother packing a picnic!

The best part of it all, though, is the fact that the Outdoor Cinema Food Fest only sells tickets in advance, meaning you don't have to wait in line for hours just to get a spot (although seating is still first come first serve). Furthermore, tickets are only $8 (less than Cinespia's "donation" price of $10), or $5 each if you buy 4.

So if you're ready to jump off the Cinespia bandwagon, beat the crowds to getting to this event!

The Outdoor Cinema Fest begins this Saturday with a screening of Swingers at Grand Hope Park. More info here.
