Dwell on Design's Movie Night & Mobile Restaurant Row

Sprinkles, Coolhaus, Let's Be Frank, the Green Truck, and Barbie's Q are some of the meals on wheels who'll be at Saturday's event
Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

This weekend is the return of the Dwell on Design conference and expo and one of the most exciting events on the schedule is Saturday's "A Night at the Movies." The evening includes screenings of two building-themed documentary films, and, for your tasting pleasure, the Square Meal on Wheels mobile "restaurant row."

First up, starting at 5 p.m., attendees will be able to put together a meal from some of the city's most popular food trucks; Sprinkles, Locali, Coolhaus, Green Truck, Let's Be Frank, Tacos Ariza, and Barbie's Q will all be parked in a row, bringing together some of our city's best "street" eats all in one place. (PS Do you follow some of these folks on Twitter?)


Next, to bring a little movie to your dinner, enjoy an architectural night at the movies. Kicking things off is The Greening of Southie, which examines Boston’s first residential green building, and the men and women who set out to construct it. This is followed by the feature presentation, Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman, the 2008 documentary (and winner of the 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature) that explores the prolific career of architectural photographer Julius Shulman.
