Most events have been canceled and major venues closed due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. While we’re doing our best to recommend what Angelenos can still do, note that some picks may be closed, canceled or postponed with short notice.

Looking for things to do this summer (and beyond)? Outdoor movies combine two things we love about L.A.: appreciation of movie-making and spending as much time as possible outside. Summertime marks the start of limited-run, alfresco screenings across the city, be it atop rooftop bars, at L.A.’s best parks or even at a Hollywood cemetery. But some of our favorite series continue through the end of the year. These outdoor venues draw moviegoers for a night under the stars, where you can bring out your picnic food, cozy up with a blanket and catch films both old and new. (If you’re looking for a fun date idea, this one takes the cake.) Be sure to check back all season long for updates on the list, as new screenings are always being added.
