Drive-In Events Around Los Angeles to Welcome Fall
Fall in Los Angeles is the perfect time for driving through the city with the windows down—the weather is cooler, a breeze settles in, and the sun shines bright.
This season, drive-in events will replace many in-person events or typical autumn holidays, as businesses work to entertain the city without breaking social distancing guidelines. We’ve gathered a few of the best drive-in events around Los Angeles to welcome fall!
Best-of Pitchfork Music Festival
Due to COVID-19, the festival this year was canceled. In response, Los Angeles is hosting a drive-in event featuring a film compiled of the “best of” acts at the Pitchfork Music Festival from the past 15 years. Hosted downtown at the stylish Drive-In at Hotel Figueroa, guests will be treated to a fun evening of exceptional music.
All proceeds for tickets support The Movement for Black Lives. Book your tickets here.
Secret Movie Club
The Secret Movie Club hosts drive-in events nearly every weekend in October—featuring, of course, horror and fright films in celebration of Halloween.
The drive-in is hosted at a parking lot in Glendale, CA. But unlike ordinary drive-ins, the Secret Movie Club brings with it a cult following and offers pre-packaged snacks (sometimes themed for the film showing) and merchandise for purchase.
OUT Under the Stars Drive-In and Socially Distanced Viewing
The Los Angeles LGBT Center is throwing a rooftop movie party on October 11 to screen the classic LGBTQ film, But I’m a Cheerleader.
The event will be held in Hollywood on the Dome Parking Structure Rooftop. Guests can choose to drive-in and watch the film from their cars, or purchase a VIP seating-for-two ticket. The latter comes with private, socially distanced seating upfront and a wine-and-snacks picnic basket.
Grace and Grit: Dance in the Time of COVID
Grace and Grit is an original film featuring compilations from top Santa Monica dance companies. This drive-in screening is an excellent way to get the feel of going to see a ballet or performance when most performances have been canceled. Additionally, ticket proceeds support the Westside School of Ballet of Santa Monica.
The Westside School of Ballet describes the film beautifully: “Together, the pieces in this film explicate Grace and Grit in true context—the sheer determination and tenacity of artists whose grace survives even the most defining challenges.”
The screenings will take place on October 9 and October 10 at 7:30 pm and 10 pm in Santa Monica.
Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience
Los Angeles has no shortage of drive-through Halloween experiences, but The Stranger Things Experience offers something different: An immersive, story-driven evening.
Fans of the hit series Stranger Things, a supernatural mystery series set in the 1980s, will love the recreation of iconic scenes…. And be thrilled by brand new monsters and mysteries!
The exact location will be revealed only to ticket-holders, but it will be somewhere in central downtown Los Angeles. The experience opens in October.
These drive-in events around Los Angeles prove our city’s ingenuity amid a time of upheaval.
While drive-in events can’t replicate the experience of typical in-person LA fall activities, they create a different type of fun that can be enjoyed by the whole family!
