Loft Cinema & local food trucks team up for screenings of ‘Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain’

Right now, you can catch the new documentary “Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain” at The Loft Cinema, but they’re hosting a special two-day event featuring local food trucks on Friday, July 23 – Saturday, July 24.

The Loft, which once again opened its theaters earlier in the year, is excited to be bringing food trucks back to the lot, and there’s no better timing than to get things going for a Bourdain documentary. The film has been screening all over and has since gotten praise from critics, fans, chefs, food writers, and the casual theater-goer.

On Friday, July 23, Takoyaki Balls will be parked in the Loft’s lot from 4 – 9 p.m., whose mission is to share its octopus dumplings and other popular Japanese street food, and then Nopalinda — a vegan food truck that’s quickly gaining local attention — will take over the space on Saturday, July 24 from 4 – 9 p.m.

The food trucks are scheduled perfectly to coincide with two of the film screenings on both days. So, you’ve got a few options when it comes to snagging a seat in the theater.
