Seems like Summer time is all the time in the city of Angeles. But we have Summer here as well. There are many events that locals and tourist can attend in the city that seems to sleep by 10 pm. From roof tops to beaches, Los Angeles has it all. Besides Malibu, Hollywood, and Disney there are other spots to witness. Here are my favorites.
HOLLYWOOD FOREVER CEMETERY
Before the first cemetery showing brings the movie buffs to Hollywood Forever with folding chairs, picnic blankets, snack spreads, and plenty of alcohol, it isn’t summer in Los Angeles until one checks out a flick with the undead. Each Summer – Cinespia visits the revered resting places of legendary actors, starring in vintage cult classics. It’s a must-do in Los Angeles, a classic summer ritual, and one of the best movie events in the city.
The real wow factor is the incredible setting—the Hollywood Bowl is nestled in a natural amphitheater in the Hollywood Hills. This means a cool breeze and a stunning view of the city skyline will be witnessed from the top of the bowl. Plus, you can take a leisurely stroll around the grounds taking in the stars shining from above. For the movie buffs, the Hollywood Bowl is also one of the most popular filming locations in the area. From Grease to Star Trek, there are too many episodes from classic TV and movies that have been filmed there.
In 1922, the LA Philharmonic staged its first concert at this beautiful outdoor amphitheater, and it has been hosting concerts ever since. The show boasts a stellar summer lineup (ranging from Sondheim songs to Disney movies) and has a pretty liberal BYOB policy that lets you bring your own wine or beer to every performance. So come down and enjoy the sounds with a nice glass of vino taking in the LA evening ambiance with the hypnotizing sounds from the orchestra.
ROOFTOP CINEMA CLUB
For a second season of showings in Downtown Los Angeles and the Arts District, the masters of rooftop movie viewing are back. Rooftop Cinema Club was the original series to come to town with a second-to-none outdoor setup. You can watch from comfortable chairs with the audio piped in over wireless headphones. Rooftop Cinema Club is known for its excellent film selections and a steady supply of snacks and alcohol. So, enjoy yourself with the movie and DTLA air.
EL MATADOR BEACH
El Matador is unquestionably the most gorgeous section of shoreline in America. It is a small, lovely stretch of sand dominated by rocky outcrops. The western Malibu beach is only reachable via a steep gravel route from a paid parking lot. So, shoes are mandatory and don’t carry too much stuff. It is the ideal place to spread your towel next to the rocks. Warning there are no lifeguards or other services, so be careful during high tide. Get there early for a spectacular Sunrise.
