For those of us who mourn the death of the drive-in theater, longing for a beautiful Los Angeles summer evening enjoying a film outdoors, behold your cure! Well, minus the cars. For travelers or natives alike, what better way to spend a lovely Wednesday evening in Los Angeles, than joining Silver Lake’s vibrant artistic community on Sunset Blvd under the stars for one of a list of classic Los Angeles-based flicks. The Silver Lake Picture Show is a free activity; even better, right? Add summertime outdoor movies to your list of fun things to do in Los Angeles.
Every other Wednesday throughout the rest of the summer The Silver Lake Picture Show will celebrate both classic and contemporary cinema with a free, outdoor screening hosted in Silver Lake’s new Sunset Triangle Plaza. But that’s not all – you’ll be a part of the film-making community as each feature film will also be introduced by a short film by a local filmmaker who will be at the event to talk about their work. Communities will be introduced to the filmmakers who live next door. Filmmakers will be given opportunities to share their work with a large audience on the big screen. And then everybody gets to watch a great movie!
Let’s be honest, you’ve been waiting for a reason to re-watch “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” for years. The time has come – Wednesday July 11th at 8:30pm.
The full lineup of films can be found at the event’s website:www.silverlakepictureshow.com

The program is designed to welcome folks of all ages, however, parental discretion is advised for youngsters on a movie-by-movie basis.
