Breakfast. Lunch And Dinner

2 posts in this topic

All meals are on your own.  Breakfast is the easiest one, because you can get that out of the way before you start watching any films.

One of the challenges is fitting in meal times, especially for lunch and dinner.   Films usually start showing about 9 AM each day.  There are multiple venues running in parallel (usually 3 TCL Multiplex auditoriums, TCL Chinese IMAX (Grauman's Chinese), Egyptian) more or less continuously throughout the day, with other venues sometimes being used (like Disney's El Capitan, or the Cinerama Dome).  Adding in other events, like interviews at Club TCM or other spots in Hollywood, or screenings at the Roosevelt poolside, can make it difficult to see everything you want.

With no defined lunch or dinner breaks, you basically have to make your own by deciding what to skip and when to eat.  We generally eat one sit down meal per day, and snack for the others (grabbing a sandwich or something to go from a counter service restaurant).

The full schedule is usually posted a couple weeks ahead of the festival, so it gives you plenty of time to plan what to see, and how to fit in meal times.
