Your Outdoor Summer Movie Guide in Los Angeles

Last Updated: July 27th

It’s here, it’s here!! That special time of year when you drink copious amounts of wine with your friends in the park, enjoy some kick-ass local food and enjoy a classic movie with about 250 Angelenos. Despite the horrendous parking scene, I absolutely love this inexpensive summer activity. In honor of the first movie screening this Saturday, I’ve created an outdoor summer movie guide for your viewing pleasure.

Each screening is linked to the particular screening host (so click on the movie title to get to the link!). Some of these companies have amazing settings (like Cinespia at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery), others provide great bands and food trucks and some are even free (check out the Silver Lake Picture Show). Some locations even allow your pooches to join in on the festivities! Make sure to purchase your tickets early as these events usually fill up quickly. And don’t forget to bring your blanket, lawn chairs, and booze of choice!

**Also, check in for more movies and available dates as this post will be updated frequently.
