We feel so lucky to find great parks all over LA. This season, we picked a few expansive, beautiful and unique parks to host our weekend movies in the park events.
This weekend, we’ll be hosting a very special event at Will Rogers State Park in Pacific Palisades. In addition to your usual lineup of LA’s best food trucks, live music and a movie (this weekend is Dirty Dancing!), we’re also hosting the annual Strut Your Mutt fundraiser walk in partnership with Best Friends Animal Society-Los Angeles.
If you are a pet lover or have a beloved four-legged friend, bring them to this event! Strut Your Mutt raises awareness of homeless pets and also raises money to support animal adoptions and spay and neuter programs across the country.
As our official non-profit partner, we’ve supported Best Friends with other events throughout the season including a Rent-a-Mutt booth during our Pitch Perfect screening on June 28 and a special donation drive during our Christmas in July event on July 12.
We’ve also scouted several other area parks to host our events throughout the year. You may have met us before at The Autry in Griffith Park. Centrally located to many different neighborhoods and freeways, this park is also home to the LA Zoo. It’s also the second-largest park in California! We love this location because it’s open, expansive and surrounded by trees and mountains. A beautiful respite from the city and yet still large enough to accommodate our crowds. The Autry is one of our newest venues, and we look forward to returning next season.
At the Autry, we showed The Big Lebowski (May 24), Rushmore (June 7), Jaws (July 5), American Psycho (July 19), Blazing Saddles (August 2), Purple Rain (August 16) and Django Unchained (August 30).
We also set up camp this season at La Cienega Park in Beverly Hills to show The Princess Bride on August 23.
