Drive-in Movie Theaters around LA: Family Movie Night in the Car

The return of the drive-in movie is one of the (few) great things to come out of the past year. While there used to be just a few year-round drive-in theaters in the 'burbs, this past year has seen pop-up drive-in events proliferate just about anywhere you can fit a movie screen. BYO popcorn (or order something decadent from the concession stand) and PJs, and pull over for an old-school family movie night!

Drive-ins aren't the only place to see a summer movie outside: Boat Cinema has arrived in LA. Plus, keep an eye on our calendar to see all the outdoor screenings that are coming back to the parks across town, where movies are shown outside of cars and under the stars.
