LAist Film Calendar: Food Trucks, Playboys & Psychedelic Blondes

When you start writing for LAist, you sign a pact in soy chorizo to promote the sacred order of the food truck whenever possible. But so many theaters prohibit bringing in outside food! What to do? If you're the Outdoor Cinema Food Fest, you bring the film outside to the food! LAist's own Farley Elliot posted an overview of the fest a few weeks back, and here's this week's delectable details: in celebration of International Dance Day, Moulin Rouge! screens downtown at Grand Hope Park, accompanied by local piano-rock quartet The Quiet, free coffee from Don Francisco's and The Buttermilk Truck, Calbi BBQ, Lake Street Creamery and Uncle Lau's BBQ! Follow Outdoor Cinema Food Fest on Twitter for late breaking updates!

Pay tribute to the man who saved the Hollywood sign AND your dad's lonely weekend nights, when Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel screens at the Nuart all week. The doc's director and sensational subject will appear at the 7:15 showing on Saturday. Should you require a classy dame to go with the gent, the Egyptian hosts Kim Novak on Friday as part of their "Platinum Career" tribute series with brand-spankin'-new restorations of Bell Book & Candle, Pal Joey, Picnic, Middle of the Night, and a gorgeous 70MM print of Vertigo. Ms. Novak's cinematic costars for the weekend include Jimmy Stewart, Jack Lemmon and Ol' Blue Eyes. Or indulge in the classic that never was, when Laemmle's Sunset plays the unfinished psychedelic thriller Henri-Georges Clouzot's "Inferno".

Full list appears below. Note the asterisks before each title - hopefully this makes the listing easier to read on mobile phones. If so (or if not) let me know. See you at the movies!
