Outdoor movies have always been a summer-must do. After a day relaxing on your pizza floatie and drinking green juice, heading to a rooftop screening is the perfect end to a summer day. In Los Angeles we have the perfect weather – warm nights with a very slim chance of rain. I’ve rounded up the best and most Instagram-worthy spots to catch a flick under the stars with your besties or boo in L.A. this summer:
1) Rooftop Cinema Club
Set against the Hollywood skyline, moviegoers can relax in blue and white striped deck chairs while taking in a summer classic. Rooftop Cinema Club also has state-of-the-art wireless headphones so you can hear the movie without worrying about city noise drowning it out.
2) Cinespia at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery
The cemetery might seem like a strange place to host an outdoor movie event, but the palm trees, cool weather, and DJ who spins before and after the movie will make you forget all about the morbid backdrop.
3) Street Food Cinema
Combine street food, pop culture cult favorites, and music, and you’ve got Street Food Cinema. With locations all over LA, you’ll be able to catch up on all your favorite movies.
4) Friday Night Flicks
Surrounded by the tall buildings of Downtown LA, snuggle up with someone special and watch a movie on Pershing Square Downtown Stage’s 40-foot outdoor screen.
5) Hollywood Bowl
The Hollywood Bowl is an LA entertainment staple. During the summer, you can buy tickets for screenings at the Bowl, often accompanied by live music!

Surprise date to see the Los Angeles Philharmonic play Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 😍 I've been dying to watch HP at the Hollywood Bowl for so long 😭 I highly recommend going to see these live orchestras. You'll really appreciate the score and the impact they make on these classics 🎶🎞 Just watching such skill and precision in time with the movie is mesmerizing. No words can fully describe it ☺️ Just like "Buckbeak's Flight". Thanks @juustjohnn for messing with my head all day just to surprise me. You're getting better at this and @nchlslaw for helping out. . #losangelesphilharmonic #laphilharmonic #losangeles #california #summers #hollywoodbowl #harrypotter #harrypotterconcert #prisonerofazkaban #buckbeak #johnnashenanigans
