HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – The second annual Sunset & Dine, taking place June 13, 2013 from 6:00-10:00 p.m., will kick off the Oscars Outdoor summer movie screening program at Academy Hollywood, the outdoor amphitheatre on the campus of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.  Early bird tickets are now available for $30 at www.sunsetanddine.org, and will grant attendees access to beer and wine, food samples from local restaurants, and a movie screening under the stars.  All proceeds from the event will benefit local charities.

Restaurants and exhibitors include:

The celebration is being organized by the Central Hollywood Coalition, the non-profit board that manages the Sunset & Vine Business Improvement District (BID), to highlight the business community around the famed Sunset & Vine intersection, especially the restaurants.  Millennium Hollywood is the Platinum Sponsor of the event; the Los Angeles Film School and CIM Group are Gold Sponsors.

“We’re excited to once again bring together the entertainment and culinary communities for a night under the stars,” planning committee member Charles Eberly, The Eberly Company, said.  “We’ve received a great amount of interest from local restaurants, and we’re delighted that The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has agreed to screen a film for the event.”

Academy Hollywood is located at 6322 DeLongpre Ave. in Hollywood.  Constructed in 2012, Academy Hollywood is home to the AMPAS summer movie screening program, Oscars Outdoors.  Sunset & Dine will kickoff the 2013 season, with a special screening of the classic 1950 film “Sunset Boulevard.”
