Jonathan Gold in Laura Gabbert’s City of Gold

City of Gold with Jonathan Gold Q&A

Some restaurant critics get ink traversing the globe; Jonathan Gold forged a more challenging route: the San Gabriel Valley hole-in-the-wall, a dull strip mall closer to home, a food truck that presaged the fad. Gold teases Angelenos’ tongues by mining culinary greatness in offbeat locales as he serves up vats of knowledge on global cuisine. City of Gold captures the process that won Gold the Pulitzer Prize. (2015, dir. Laura Gabbert, 96 min.)

A Q&A with Jonathan Gold and director Laura Gabbert follows the screening, and will be streamed live on this page (see below). Q&A begins at approximately 9 p.m.

City of Gold opens in theaters on March 11, 2016, at the Landmark and the Arclight Hollywood.
