The Zócalo/KCRW "My Favorite Movie" Series
Moderated by Evan Kleiman, Host, KCRW's Good Food

Zócalo and KCRW launch “My Favorite Movie,” a series of quarterly events in which we ask prominent Angelenos to screen and talk about their favorite films at the Million Dollar Theatre in downtown L.A. Kicking things off is chef and restaurateur Roy Choi, author of the memoir L.A. Son and the man behind the Kogi Korean BBQ phenomenon, whose latest restaurant is Koreatown’s POT. Choi has chosen to screen Chef, which is currently playing in theaters around the country, and tells the story of a high-end restaurant chef who abandons the world of fine dining to hit the road in a food truck. After the screening, Choi, who served as co-producer and technical consultant on Chef, sits down with KCRW’s Evan Kleiman to discuss the film–where it makes him laugh the hardest, what parts hit a little too close to home, and why he chose this project for his Hollywood debut.


This event is made possible with generous support from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
