iPic Theaters‘ VP of Culinary Direction Sherry Yard continues her Guest Chef series in both Westwood and Pasadena, as well as across the country in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin.) She’s invited a posse of America’s best chefs to create a special menu of food and drinks. Why not catch a summer blockbuster while sampling the innovative menu?
July: Escape from the heat with Mindy Segal’s Hot Fudge Thumbprint Cookie & Banilla Boozy Milkshake (Yum!) which features hot fudge, chocolate cookie with smoked sugar paired with a banana vanilla shake and optional Atlantic Rum float. Pastry Chef Extraordinaire Segal owns Chicago’s HotChocolate.
August: LA’s own Eric Greenspan lends his Crispy Fried Chicken Sandwich to the menu, featuring pimento cheese, pickles, red hot mayo, and slow cooked greens on challah. (Let’s not even talk about the amped up comfort food at Greenspan’s Grilled Cheese!)
September: Elizabeth Falkner brings her award-winning pizza talent to the iPic with her Smoky Bro Pizza, topped with San Marzano tomato sauce, smoked mozzarella, broccolini, garlic, and fresno chilis.

Just ask for extra napkins!
iPic’s own Mixologist Adam Seger has come up with a splashy cocktail program to accompany those blockbusters.
July: Seger kicks off summer with his Illegalito, pairing rum with coconut, pineappple, and mint. Make it Ultimate with aged rum!
August: Don’t miss the Bespoke Buck, housemade ginger beer with choice of fruit and your preferred spirit: bourbon, vodka, gin, or tequila. Choices, choices, choices! I’ll take gin! Make it a Ultimate with iPic Luxury Spirit Selection!
