Event description
A night celebrating Anthony Bourdain feat. an early screening of the new doc Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain + food from LA's best

About this event

Join L.A. Times Food Bowl on June 26 for Night Market Cinema, an exclusive evening celebrating the late gifted storyteller, explorer, and chef, Anthony Bourdain, presented by City National Bank. Attendees will enjoy an early screening of the film Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain ahead of the theatrical release date of July 16.

The highly anticipated documentary is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at how an anonymous chef became a world-renowned cultural icon. From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?), this unflinching look at Bourdain reverberates with his presence, in his own voice and in the way he indelibly impacted the world around him.

*** THE FOOD AND DRINK ***

Savor foods themed on the exploration of international culture & cuisine with an ode to Bourdain’s legacy and beloved TV shows ‘Parts Unknown’ and ‘No Reservations’. Each ticket includes dinner from some of L.A.’s best chefs and local popups. Choose between Jon & Vinny’s Pizza (Vegetarian), A’s BBQ, Taco’s 1986 (Vegetarian Option), or Bridgetown Roti (Vegetarian Option), plus a sweet treat from Wanderlust Creamery and more. Drinks will be available for purchase from our bars featuring JUSTIN and Landmark Vineyards and Stella Artois beer. Acqua Panna Natural Spring Water and S.Pellegrino Sparkling Natural Mineral Water will be made available free of charge.

*** LIVE DJ: ALISON MOSSHART ***

A friend of the late Anthony Bourdain, Alison Mosshart is best known as lead vocalist for the rock band The Kills. She will be honoring Tony at the event by playing a set filled with songs that he loved before the screening of the film.
