The beloved breakthrough film--and surprise hit--that launched the careers of Wes Anderson and Jason Schwartzman (and propelled Bill Murray into indie stardom) screens at The Autry during Eat|See|Hear's new summer series. Watch a precocious, 15 year-old Max Fischer pine away for his paramour, Miss Cross (only to find himself in an odd love triangle alongside disillusioned industrialist, Herman Blume) from The Autry's elegant lawn. While Cinespia may be set in a fabled cemetery, Eat|See|Hear has its own special perk: food trucks. Amongst the mobile meals on offer are treats from Trailer Park Truck, Rice Balls of Fire, Chili Philosopher, Mandoline Grill, The Gastrobus, Tokyo Doggie Style, Peaches’ Smokehouse BBQ, Luck Dish, Oh My Gaga, Asian Cravings, The Fry Girl, No Jodas Kitchen, Sweet E’s, Coolhaus, and Brasil Kiss.

Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) is a precocious 15-year-old whose reason for living is his attendance at Rushmore, a private school where he's not doing well in any of his classes, but where he's the king of the extracurricular activities. He's put on academic probation and falls in love with Miss Cross, a teacher at the elementary school. Add to this Max's friendship with Herman Blume (Bill Murray), a father to boys who attend Rushmore and also attracted to Miss Cross. Max's fate becomes inextricably tied to this odd love triangle and how he sets about resolving it is the story in this wonderful film directed by Wes Anderson.
