All of L.A.’s outdoor movies in one calendar

Sit back, relax and catch one of L.A.’s outdoor movie screenings, be it on a rooftop or in your own car

Looking to escape your couch for a bit and watch something? Outdoor movies combine two things we love about L.A.: appreciation of movie-making and spending as much time as possible outside. Alfresco screenings usually start to pop up across the city in the late spring, be it atop rooftop bars, at L.A.’s best parks or even at a Hollywood cemetery.

But this year is all about the drive-in. And sure, things might be a little different than screening seasons in the Before Time, but moviegoers can still pack together some picnic food and catch films both old and new. (If you’re looking for a fun date idea, this one takes the cake.)

We’ll be keeping track of both our long-standing outdoor series favorites as well as some new ones as they flip to more social-distancing–friendly formats. Be sure to check back all year long for updates on the list, as new screenings are always being added.

Looking to see a movie any night of the week? Check out the best drive-in movie theaters in L.A.
