Sound & Cinema 2014 Season Schedule

Our partnership with Do512 continues with another summer filled with live music and great movies - all presented free to the public on the beautiful lawn at the Long Center. Check out the full schedule in this post.

Sound & Cinema 2014 Season Schedule

Last year we started a grand new annual tradition in partnership with our friends over at Do512 - Austin Sound & Cinema. The free summer series featured local and national bands paired with classic movies presented on the lawn at the Long Center with the gorgeous (and ever changing) Austin skyline in perfect view behind the band and then the film.

The events drew large crowds of Austinites who came out to enjoy the Austin summer evening along with some great beverages for sale by the Long Center and some of the best food trucks this city has to offer, and after an amazing season of events like Magnifico performing before FLASH GORDON and Chali 2na of Jurassic 5 playing before JURASSIC PARK, we knew we had something special on our hands. Today I'm happy to announce that we have something special on our hands yet again, and thanks to the support from some amazing sponsors, Sound & Cinema will be returning to the Long Center for the summer 2014 season.

As with 2013’s inaugural series, this year’s Sound & Cinema will once again feature unique pairings of classic Hollywood movies with a diverse array of local bands from different genres. The bands will play a musical tribute to the movie, followed by a screening of the film on our giant inflatable outdoor screen, all with the backdrop of the Austin skyline in the background. 

The six-event summer series will be held on the lawn at The Long Center, on opposite Wednesdays from Blues on the Green.  These events are free, family-friendly, and open to the public.  Local food trucks will include Peached Tortilla, Whole Foods, Frank, Boomerang’s, Garbo’s, Yeti, and Uncle Louie G’s. There will be full bar service featuring El Jimador cocktails, a variety of craft beers, and non-alcoholic drinks. 

The food trucks will open at 6pm each night, and the sunset concerts will start around 7pm.  The movies will begin shortly after dark (around 8:30pm). Guests are welcome to bring blankets, folding chairs, and non-alcoholic beverages.  Pets and outside alcoholic beverages are not allowed.  Parking is available in the Long Center garage, and there will also be extra bike racks at the Long Center for each event, plus a free car2go drop zone.

The 2014 Austin Sound & Cinema season is made possible by support from The Long Center, Aquasana, Howdy Honda, Brown Distributing Company, El Jimador Tequila, AT&T, BASSBOSS, car2go, and Hannover South Lamar.
