Street Food Cinema is like a neighborhood party that combines food, music and movies.

It's been happening all over Los Angeles for the last few years, and this summer it makes its San Diego debut.

A selection of cult favorites and family films will be screened at Seaport Village's new Ruocco Park, as well as at Balboa Park. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., the band begins at 6:30 p.m. and the movie plays at 8:30 p.m.

Here's the schedule so far:

Saturday, Aug. 20

It all kicks off with a screening of San Diego's most epic film, "Top Gun" (rated PG). The screening is part of Hulu's Summer Road Trip tour and will also feature an episode of "The O.C." The band Broken Stems will perform and you can buy food from a variety of food trucks.

Admission is free for this sponsored screening, but you can find additional details here.

Saturday, Sept. 24

"Mean Girls" (rated PG-13) will be screened at Balboa Park (specifically at 3325 Zoo Drive). Jet West will perform and there will be food trucks selling dinner and snacks.
