Frequently Asked Questions

DO I HAVE TO PURCHASE PASSES ONLINE?
You don’t HAVE to do anything. ;) We encourage you to purchase passes in advance, as it allows us to book the optimal amount of food trucks for the size of the crowd. Any individual passes not sold in advance will be available at the door. Group package discounts (10+) are only available in advance by contacting info@eatseehear.com

 

HOW MUCH ARE CHILDREN’S PASSES?
Children 12 and under are $8. Kids under 5 are free. Most of the films we’re showing are for adults/mature audiences. We suggest that you consult the movie ratings and the content of each film before bringing children to the event.

 

CAN WE RESERVE “SEATS?”
YES! Well, sort of. Don’t stress about getting the perfect spot at each event. This is LA after all. We know traffic and life make us Fashionably Late, so we’ve got passes just for you – guaranteed one of the best spots in each venue. For just $20 per pass, there will be a designated area just for Fashionably Late Passes, so you can arrive at 8 instead of 5:30. You won’t have a specific “spot” within this area but you’ll have plenty of room. Fashionably Late Passes will be sold online only, in a very limited quantity. Depending on the size of the venue, that will determine the number of passes made available. Please note that Children 5-12 require a Fashionably Late ticket as we have limited space in this area and need to account for every ticket.

 

ARE THERE SEATS/WHAT DO WE SIT ON?
That was a loaded question, right? All of our events are in parks or on athletic fields, with the exception of The Memorial Greek Theater at Santa Monica High School and Pasadena City Hall, so a picnic blanket or low beach chair (no more than 6″ off the ground) would be your best bet. If you bring a lawn/camping chair, you will be obstructing the view of other moviegoers and required to please sit off to the sides in a designated chair area.

We suggest that you bring chairs to Pasadena City Hall as there will be street closures with the seating area at Centennial Square in front of Pasadena City Hall.

 

ARE THERE EXCHANGES OR REFUNDS?
Yes and no. If you need to exchange your ticket for another night, we will do our best to accommodate you, as long as we are not sold out for the night you would like to exchange for. If you purchased your tickets and changed your mind or forgot, we cannot offer a refund post-event, but as previously stated we will do our best to exchange your pass(es) for another night, in advance. Refunds/exchanges will be made up until the day before event day (Friday). No refunds or exchanges on Saturday (event day). Please contact info@eatseehear.com

 

WHAT TIME DO DOORS OPEN?
Doors open at 5:30pm.

 

WHAT TIME DOES THE BAND START?
The band will begin performing around 7pm.

 

WHAT TIME DOES THE MOVIE START?
All movies begin approximately 30 minutes after Sundown at approximately 8:30pm, unless otherwise noted.

 

WHAT FOOD TRUCKS WILL BE THERE?
The benefit of being in the city that revolutionized the Food Truck movement is that we have SO MANY amazing trucks to choose from! We will have different trucks every week and we encourage you to follow your favorites on Twitter to see if they’re going to be at the next Eat|See|Hear event. Of course every week, we will have our Official Frozen Dessert partner, Coolhaus, and our Official Coffee provider, Brasil Kiss.

Your best bet is to sign up for our weekly update, follow us on Twitter @EatSeeHear and become a fan of our Facebook page. We’ll announce the line up through all of these channels, along with any last minute changes prior to the event.

 

WHEN WILL FOOD TRUCKS ARRIVE?
Food trucks will be on site ready to serve you when doors open at 5:30pm. Food trucks will be available throughout the evening, or until they run out of food, whichever comes first. At most venues, dinner service ends a half hour after the movie begins.

 

CAN WE BRING IN OUTSIDE SNACKS AND DRINKS?
The first word in our name is EAT and we think you’ll enjoy sampling the variety of options all of the Food Trucks we’re inviting out to each event have to offer. If you do bring your own picnic, please do not bring coolers over 12″x12″ to any location. There will always be vegetarian options from one or more trucks seeing as a few of us of are vegetarian/vegan.

 

CAN I BRING BEER OR ALCOHOL?
It is our responsibility to let you know that alcohol is prohibited in all City and State Parks, as well as at any school. Our RA said the same thing in college. Be smart.

 

WILL ALCOHOL BE SERVED AT ANY EVENTS?
We used to say “Unfortunately no,” but now we can say “Well actually, YES!” But ONLY at The Autry in Griffith Park. The Cafe will sell beer, wine and sometimes a signature cocktail as well as soda and water.

 

ARE PETS ALLOWED?
Friendly, leashed pets are allowed every Eat|See|Hear location. If you do bring your pet, please make sure you have enough poop bags, treats and water for your furry friend. We’ll always have free biscuits at the front entrance for doggies, too! And extra poop bags and water bowls around the venue.

 

IS THERE FREE PARKING?
In LA?! Free parking?!?! YES! Some (not all) locations offer free parking on site or a combination of a parking lot and nearby on-street parking. Some locations have nearby fee ($$$) parking lots or on-street parking. Please check the individual event for specific parking information. If you do park on the street, be sure to read all parking signs and please be quiet when exiting so as not to disturb our neighbors. We want to be invited back next year. Please note that if you park in a fee ($$$) lot, we have no connection to said lot and are simply making a suggestion as to where to park. We do not validate nor offer any special rates.

 

ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED AT RATED “R” MOVIES?
Eat|See|Hear follows the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) ratings and guidelines. R-Restricted – Under 17 requires accompanying by a parent or adult guardian. Please check movie content before bringing children.

 

WHERE IS THE MOVIE PROJECTED?
Eat|See|Hear offers an unrivaled outdoor movie experience with digital HD projection and state of the art line-array audio. Each movie will be projected onto a Harkness motion picture screen surface. AIRSCREEN, the original inflatable movie projection screen which provides a wrinkle-free, top quality, crisp, clear image resulting in an enjoyable experience for everyone. We guarantee you will not be disappointed. For specific information, please read about our technology.

 

HOW BIG IS THE SCREEN?
The image that you see on-screen at all locations will be 3.5 stories tall by 52 feet wide. This is the largest – and only – outdoor screen on the West Coast.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
It doesn’t rain in Los Angeles. ;) We’ll do our best to reschedule the date. Seriously though, if it is not raining where the event is being held, it’s on! If it is raining where you are, we are sorry that we cannot refund your ticket because the event hasn’t been cancelled. If there is a threat of rain or high winds before the event starts (doors open), we will keep watch on the weather and update you on the status if there is a threat. If it rains once doors open, there are no refunds (just like at a baseball game) and we’ll do our best to honor tickets for a future date.

 

GIVE A HOOT, DON’T POLLUTE
Whatever you carry in, please carry it out with you. Or at the very least to the nearest trash can. Please help us keep our parks and green spaces CLEAN. We’re not your housekeeper and would appreciate your helping us keep our local venues happy so that we can return to your community next year. If someone near you was careless, please be the better human and toss out the trash that was “inadvertently” left behind. (We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt, but really we all know karma’s a bitch.)
