This show was completely different from all other events I've attended at the Bowl - it was a nice change. The double rainbow and lightening show in the foothills was an added surprise!

The basic idea for the show is good, but the film clips ran too long and there was not enough of them. The questions could have been more challenging.

Very unique experience. Movies + live orchestra under the stars. It was a memorable night as we had a double rainbow, a drop or 2 of rain, then a thunder show off in the distance.

This event was a little different than I expected, but I did like it.
My seats were really great in the middle section of the Bowl.
I had a great view of the stage. Thank you Goldstar!!

Very entertaining, interesting and educational; love the glow sticks that the Hollywood Bowl distributed for the question and answer period.

I liked it, but I would have loved it if they would include more contemporary movies and many were that I did not know. I still enjoy it the event and I do recommend it for others.

What a great concept!

After first learning about this, i was left wondering how it could be an event with crowd participation. The glow-sticks were such a great idea.

Not only did it get the audience involved, it made for some great visuals...continued

The seat were pretty high up, section N1. But they were good seats, dead center. The show was really fun with the trivia, and the music excellent. Movies were played up on 5 jumbo trons so viewing was very good. Overall excellent time!

Great event for cinephiles. Film clips from several movies accompanied by the orchestra. There was also a movie quiz hosted ably by Alex Trebek. The audience seemed to have a great time, as did we.
