Hollywood might be known for making movies, but here, we also love to watch them and there’s nothing better than enjoying a movie outside in the beautiful Southern California weather. Luckily, in Los Angeles, the weather stays nice enough to be outside the majority of the year, and during the warm months you can find outdoor movie events happening all over the city. With movies being shown outdoors from Pasadena to the Pacific Palisades, there’s sure to be one near you. There are also movies of almost every imaginable genre being shown around town, so no matter what type of films you love, there’s probably somebody showing something you’ll like. From children’s movies to cult classics, there’s a little bit of everything shown at the city’s outdoor movie showings. Below, you can take a look at some of the movie showings around Los Angeles, during the spring and summer, this year.
