Dining is flexible. The food there is pricey. I usually pack food, but eating at your seat (seats, no benches) can be a little awkward. There are tables scattered about and concrete you can sit on, as well, but get there a little early for that.English as a Second Language dining • Jul 29 2014 star this tip starred
Parking is stacked, $5. Give yourself some time. There's a small lot in front of the box office, and another one a little further away, but not too bad. Some parts are a little hilly and the walk right in front of the box office gets very steep.English as a Second Language travel • Jul 29 2014 star this tip starred

The event was great and the venue made it even better. It was my first time to The Ford so I didn't really know what to expect, even though I read tons of reviews to get an idea. The weather was perfect for having a picnic and drinking beer. My husband and I arrived early which increased the enjoyment factor. We were able to picnic outdoors and enjoy the mariachi that was playing. We got great seats since we arrived early. The entertainment before the movie added to the experience with special props to Ximena's voice and Amandititita's personality. I loved the humor, the music and the movie's scenery. It made me fall in love with my Mexico all over again!
About the Musicians:
*Ximena is a Latin Grammy nominated WB recording artist. Her debut solo album, Mediocre, in 2008, Rolling Stone gave it four stars and praised it as “one of the strongest debuts from a female singer-songwriter since Norah Jones Come Away With Me.” Sarinana,who had risen to fame in Mexico as a child actress and had fronted a successful indie band for four years. She choose to record her album in English as a way to convince people that she was worth it. Born in Guadalajara raised partly in LA before moving to Mexico City. The 25 year old is currently living in LA working on her next album.
Nathaniel Rappole’s solo project Gull is often described as a one-man-band – technically correct, but missing the point. Gull is a drum; a living, breathing, squawking drum that cries out popular music from the past 50 years and delivers it from a single unique perspective; a communal music broadcast left as an offering on the altar of sound.
