Roy Choi presents Chef + Grand Central Market stays open 'til 7 for pre-screening grub.
My Favourite Movie: A screening of Jon Favreau's Chef with Roy ChoiMillion Dollar Theatre (307 South Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013) Map it Free
Zócalo and KCRW launch “My Favorite Movie,” a series of quarterly events in which we ask prominent Angelenos to screen and talk about their favorite films at the Million Dollar Theatre in downtown L.A. Kicking things off is chef and restaurateur Roy Choi, author of the memoir L.A. Son and the man behind the Kogi Korean BBQ phenomenon, whose latest restaurant is Koreatown’s POT. Choi has chosen to screen Chef, which is currently playing in theaters around the country, and tells the story of a high-end restaurant chef who abandons the world of fine dining to hit the road in a food truck. After the screening, Choi, who served as co-producer and technical consultant on Chef, sits down with KCRW’s Evan Kleiman to discuss the film–where it makes him laugh the hardest, what parts hit a little too close to home, and why he chose this project for his Hollywood debut.
The Million Dollar Theatre, located next to Grand Central Market, hosts a special FREE screening of Chef. Director Jon Favreau's latest about a restaurant chef who quits his job to start his own food truck is L.A. chef and entrepreneur Roy Choi's pick for Zócalo and KCRW's new "My Favorite Movie" series. After the screening, Choi, who served as a co-producer and consultant for the film, will dish on the filmmaking process, own-life parallels and of course, food with KCRW's "Good Food" host Evan Kleiman.
For the occasion, the following Grand Central Market vendors will be open until 7 pm to accommodate pre-screening dinner, drinks and snacks: Belcampo Meat Co., Bento Ya, Berlin Currywurst, Better Booch, DTLA Cheese, Horse Thief BBQ, La Huerta, Lupita’s Seafood, Olio GCM Wood Fired Pizzeria, Roast To Go, Sarita’s Pupuseria, Sticky Rice.
