A Chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family. 

After talented and dynamic chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) isn’t given the space he needs to shine at his L.A. restaurant due to the owner’s (Dustin Hoffman) rigid traditional ways, he launches on a social media-fueled tirade against his nemesis food critic (Oliver Platt), which lands him without any job prospects. With a new lease on life, Chef Casper moves to Miami with his son and his sous chef (John Leguizamo) to build a brand new food truck business. This smart take on food and chef culture contains poignant messages about the media-driven world we live in and the real meaning of success.

With real heart, Jon Favreau plays a man who must find common ground between his passion for cooking and his love for his son. His direction of an ensemble cast including Sofia Vergara, Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Amy Sedaris, and perhaps, most notably, up-and-coming Emjay Anthony, is refreshingly honest and rings true.

Miami has been at the forefront of the explosion of Food Truck Culture with a multitude of delicious offerings, but for this special evening we're partnering up with one of our favorites- the always mouth-watering Los Chamos whose menu of traditional Venezuelan fare is always yummy.

As always we'll keep it casual, you'll pickup your food from the Los Chamos truck stationed right in front of the cinema and you can enjoy it in our recently renovated outdoor courtyard or take it inside with you to eat while you're watching the film. 

Your meal will be a fulfilling tasting of traditional venezuelan fare. Each meal will be served withtequenos, a savory sourdough pastry with cheese filling and a side of spicy guava habanero sauce. You'll enjoy one Arepa and oneEmpanada and can choose from the meat-based or veggie options below:
