Would you believe me if I told you that I’ve lived in Los Angeles now and this summer was my first ever outdoor movie? I know, it blows my mind too.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve done plenty of the SoCal summer outdoorsy stuff. I’ve done Shakespeare in the Park down in San Pedro, nearly every summer. We’ve been to many an outdoor concert – downtown, at the Santa Monica Pier, Pasadena, you name it.
But this was my first outdoor movie. And not a bad choice….Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, in Pasadena. It was part of the Eat | See | Hear traveling show. Each Saturday, it’s a different movie at a different location. You bring a chair, pillow or blankets, check out the live music, enjoy the collection of food trucks. You can even bring your dog with you. And then when the sun goes down, the movie starts.
This week, Eat | See | Hear is showing Boogie Nights – you know that classic LA love story – at LA Trade Tech. And the coolest part, they’re making it a drive in!! But you need to get your tickets in advance. You can get all the scoop and their summer schedule here.
If you’re looking for other summer night movie options, be sure to check out the LAist with their complete list. And who knows, I just might see you there…or at Shakespeare by the Sea…or Downtown at one of the music events.
