With Hollywood being both the undisputed headquarters of American cinema and a place with enviable weather, it’s only natural that one of the community’s favorite ways to watch a movie is outdoors. Every Saturday from May until August, Cinespia hosts screenings spanning a variety of genres and time periods at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery’s Fairbanks Lawn. Online tickets are $12 per person. Also taking place in the summer, Oscars Outdoors is held at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science’s open-air theatre on their Hollywood campus. Tickets are $5 per person, $3 for Academy members or students. Read more about LA's fantastic outdoor movie screenings.
