There are a lot of perks to living in California, but one of my recent traditions has become the various screenings held by the fine folks at Street Food Cinema, who bring out a cavalcade of food trucks for each film event, as well as live musical entertainment, special guests, and more. SFC is a great way to experience some of your favorite movies underneath the stars, and if you live in the LA area, I highly recommend checking out what Street Food Cinema has to offer.

SFC recently announced their 2018 slate of screenings for Los Angeles and the surrounding areas in California , and here’s a look at the various genre-related movies (and some other films I thought readers might be interested in) that will be playing from May through the end of October.
