Outdoor Movie Screenings in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is the city of entertainment, and hosts many free movie nights during summer evenings. If you’re in town taking advantage of Hollywood vacation packages as summer winds down, there are still plenty of places to check out a free outdoor screening of classic movies. Check out the venues below for details on free screenings this week in Hollywood!


Walk-In Movies at Alcove Café

This darling café does more than serve amazing brunch and cocktails. Once a month from May to September, they screen a film on a 12 foot screen draped over the front of their building for guests to enjoy. Cocktail and dinner specials are available during the film. No reservations are needed. It is recommended that you show up during Happy Hour to get the best seating.  There is a screening tonight, August 20 of “Stand By Me” at Big Bar. You can also watch “The Bad Seed” on September 17.  For more information on tonight’s screening, click here.  Great for dates or large groups!
