This weekend, Eat|See|Hear is hosting an outdoor event in Beverly Hills at La Cienega Park. The perfect event for the whole family, and an Eat|See|Hear annual tradition, we’ll be showing The Princess Bride at 8:30PM.
Based on a novel of the same name, The Princess Bride was released in 1987 and has many well-known actors on cast including Cary Elwes, Fred Savage, Robin Wright, André the Giant, and Mandy Patinkin (star of Showtime Network’s Homeland) as Inigo Montoya. It has since become a cult classic with posters, memes and even tee shirts emblazoned with the famous line, “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
Cary Elwes, who played Westley/the Man in Black and is Buttercup’s love interest in the film, will join us on Saturday to introduce the film. He has written a book about the making of the movie called As You Wish which will be released this October.
Our event will include a wide selection of LA food trucks including: Flat Iron, Border Grill, Komodo, Smokin’ Willie’s BBQ, Mangia Ristorante, Hurricane Kitchen, Trailer Park Truck, Roll’n Lobster, Tokyo Doggie Style, Mighty Boba, Street Kitchen, B Sweet, Coolhaus, Brasil Kiss and many others. The trucks will be on location and ready to serve at 5:30PM and will stick around until around 9:30, and the dessert & coffee trucks will be there all night.
At 7PM, LA band Dark Furs will take the stage. A female-fronted rock band, Dark Furs creates a unique sound that they call “mood rock.” They’ve been featured on many “Bands to Watch” lists and recorded their self-titled debut EP in 2013.
La Cienega Park is located at 8400 Gregory Way in Beverly Hills. There’s limited complimentary parking across the street at the Tennis Center, so arrive early to snag your spot. There’s also street parking in the area but please watch out for signs! We don’t want anyone to end up getting a ticket or towed. There are pay parking lots on Wilshire, too.
This event is dog friendly. We welcome all four-legged friends to our events and will be handing out free doggie biscuits at the door. Please make sure you bring water, treats and bags to clean up after your pet.
Get ready for a great night of family fun! Purchase your tickets in advance online.
