20 Love It
Save it

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

Looking for things to do this summer? 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, al fresco screenings across the city, be it atop rooftop bars, at L.A.’s best parks or even at the Hollywood cemetery. 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.
