July Movies Screening at your Favorite LA Outdoor Cinemas (2022)

If you have never been to an outdoor rooftop movie theatre, this is your sign to try it out because theatres make movies better. Since the summer season is upon us, night showings with a view of LA can really create a special, memorable night. Rooftop Cinema Club, Cinespia & Melrose Rooftop Theaters are great examples of taking ‘going to the movies’ to the next level. Cinema-style seating, personal headphones, and views of Los Angeles is the hot ticket of the summer. Here are three outdoor movie theatres in LA to add to your bucket list!

Rooftop Cinema Club DTLA

Located on Olive Street, head on over to your screening a little early to enjoy the golden hour, dusk, or sunset. Every angle is Instagrammable so give yourself some time to take all the pictures you need (trust us, make sure your phone is fully charged). Then, grab some snacks your personal headphones, and select your deckchairs, which you can adjust the height, plenty of leg room, and you can lean back under the stars.
