Drive-In Movie Showtimes in LA – 2021 Dates Announced

There may be a pandemic, but you don’t have to give up outdoor movies–or at least not entirely. Clever pop-up series have shifted from crowding parks with viewers on picnic blankets to setting up massive parking-lot screens inspired by classic American drive-in movie theaters. These pop-up drive-in movie series might just be the biggest entertainment events of the season.

Family Style & Blondie Beach Drive-Thru Theater

Inglewood

This event outside SoFi Stadium features two film screenings, plus opportunities to order food from local restaurants including Hotville Chicken and Jon & Vinny’s, as well as shop limited-edition merch.

March 27, 7 p.m. North Hollywood / Jurassic Park
March 28, 7 p.m. North Hollywood / Jurassic Park

Cinespia at the Greek

Griffith Park

The ultimate authority in outdoor movies has finally popped back up in this most unusual of film-going seasons. For now, that means a three-screening run as a drive in at the parking lot of the Greek theater. Tickets cover up to four guests inside the car.

Gardena

Vintage single-screen Gardena Cinema has been entertaining audiences since 1946, and operated by the same family for the past 45 of those years. They’ve pivoted to drive-in screenings by converting their parking lot into a viewing area.
