These are the hottest drive-in events rolling into the city this summer.
Roll into reimagined open spaces across L.A., where screens and stages will light up as the sun sets in the background. The pandemic has canceled summer for the most part, but it’s also given way to a revival of a bygone era of entertainment: the drive-in theater. There are multiple pop-up cinemas, live performances and immersive experiences happening all from the safety of your car.
Here’s what you have to look forward to (for now).
New York’s prestigious Tribeca film festival is coming to Los Angeles in the form of a series of drive-in classic movie screenings and comedy acts in what’s set to be a much-needed nostalgic ritual for all ages (old enough to drive). All the events will take place at the Pasadena Rose Bowl parking lot for the entire month of July. There’s still time to catch films before it’s over.
It’s the summer of drive-ins and rooftops and we’re oh so glad it is! ‘Drive ‘N Drag’, the latest and fiercest show to join the line-up of summer drive-ins, will be rolling into the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena this August. Just 20 minutes from DTLA, the show will feature performances by RuPaul’s Drag Race alum and drag royalty Gigi Goode, Kameron Michaels, Jaida Essence Hall, Naomi Smalls, Vanessa Vanjie, Violet Chachki and more.
Street Food Cinema’s usual alfresco summer screenings with food truck fare is taking on a drive-in format this year. This means you can still gather your quarantine clique and enjoy a night under the stars with the delicious offerings from local food trucks.
Go on a journey through the incredible eras of the Beatles with The Fab Four: Ultimate Tribute live drive-in concert! Known as one of the best tribute bands around, the Emmy Award-winning group will take the stage at The OC Fair & Event Center, to bring you the true spirit of the English rock band that changed music forever.
