Every Eat|See|Hear movie will be viewed on the only three-story high, 52-foot-wide image on an inflatable movie screen west of the Mississippi, offering an unrivaled outdoor movie experience with digital HD projection and state of the art line-array audio. For those of you that are tech savvy, we’ve provided a sampling of what you can expect from the Eat|See|Hear production team, below.

Our technical production company, Hollywood Outdoor Movies, is the leading outdoor movie production company in Southern California. As seasoned event producers, we only want the best for you, our audience and we won’t settle for anything but the highest quality production. This is Hollywood after all, and we all know a good production from a “not so good” production.

Make no mistake – no other outdoor movie experience in Southern California will equal the production level of Eat|See|Hear.

Hollywood Outdoor Movies has worked with such prestigious clients including NBC Universal, The Weinstein Company, BAFTA, AMC Theatres, Univision, Toyota, Fiat, Goldenvoice, Coachella, Harman, Reef and Etnies, among others, and is the trusted source when Disney/Pixar produces an outdoor movie event.

MOVIE SCREEN / IMAGE SIZE: The image you will see is 52 feet wide and 26 feet high. This surface is highly reflective with a gain factor of 1.0, is identical to what you see in a movie theater and is a Harkness Motion Picture Screen.

FRAME: We only use AIRSCREEN inflatable frames – the best in the business! The frame we are using is 60 feet wide and 40 feet tall – 3.5 stories! The bottom of the screen is 6.5 feet off the ground, so everyone can see! (Hint: You’ve probably seen this screen before at another well known outdoor movie series in LA.)

PROJECTION & SURFACE: We use professional Christie, Eiki, & Barco projectors, which feature a full 2k resolution, 3 chip LCD or DLP, 2100-3000:1 contrast ratio projected image with 15,000 – 30,000 lumens of pure High Definition, depending upon the venue. What does that mean for you? One extremely bright image with deeper, brighter colors that won’t be affected by environmental lighting at each venue. Our AIRSCREEN projection surface is made with an industry exclusive black backing, which prevents ambient lighting behind the screen from distorting the film’s image quality. This black back, coupled with the Harkness screen and bright HD projection results in a crisp, clear, sharp theater quality image and experience.

JBL PRO SOUND: What good is an outdoor production if you can’t hear it, regardless of where you sit in the audience? We utilize JBL VRX932 line array tops & VRX918 subs, all powered by Crown amplifiers so you can hear every whisper or scream with our 30,000 watt sound system. We custom-calibrate each venue to ensure that audience members can enjoy a decibel appropriate listening experience – not too loud and not too soft, but just right. With the capability to implement decibal shading & delay speaker towers, the audio coverage will be clear & consistent no matter where you choose to sit. The only thing that we can’t control is if your neighbor is talking. ☺

AUDIO MIXING: The sound is only as good as the mix provided from the sound tech. All of our events will be mixed on digital consoles provided by Soundcraft or Digidesign. The front of house graphic EQ will be managed by Klark Teknik, with processing & delay duties handled by DBX. Our front of house engineers share more than 20 years of live mixing experience with music and film. Film audio will be delivered in stereo, as 5.1 mixes aren’t ideal for large audiences.

IN ENGLISH: The bottom line is that it comes down to quality of the equipment that we use. We’ve got the best, top of the line one-two-three punch with a motion picture screen, professional HD projection and concert-quality professional sound. When all these elements come together and are professionally mixed it results in an unrivaled outdoor movie experience.

Our production stands on it’s own two feet. We’re not trying to convince you we are the coolest or the best: We ARE the best! This is Hollywood after all – the movie capital of the world – you demand and deserve the best, especially when watching a movie. Every outdoor movie experience has their respective charms and we’ve enjoyed many of them throughout the years.

We chose a selection of movies that will put a smile on your face and make you feel good when you leave. You’ll see these films on the largest screen west of the Mississippi, in unique venues, covering every corner of Los Angeles with awesome food trucks and the best local, up and coming bands. That’s why Eat|See|Hear is LA’s PREMIER Outdoor Movie, Food Truck and Live Music Event Series. We know you’ll enjoy it.
