A world premiere event!

American Film Institute and Hollywood Bowl reunite for a movie night like no other: this unique spectacle will test your film knowledge in concert with thousands of movie lovers as questions about the movies and music are answered live by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra!

Alex Trebek of Jeopardy! will host this extraordinary evening. Trebek will take the audience through multiple choice questions covering film trivia from every genre and decade. Each member of the audience, furnished with a set of multi-colored glow sticks, will be asked to reveal their answer by selecting the glowstick that corresponds to their choice. Collectively, the audience will light up the entire Hollywood Bowl with their guesses.

Tickets are no longer available through, but you can still purchase by calling the Hollywood Bowl Audience Services line at 323.850.2000, or go online to purchase here.
