Posted by

Ready for another season of outdoor movie screenings at one of L.A.’s most iconic venues?

On May 14 Cinespia returns for a landmark 15th season of bringing classic films to the famed Fairbanks Lawn at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.


Some 4,000 moviegoers are expected to attend per night, with guests invited to bring their own blankets, food, and drinks (including alcoholic beverages) to help make each evening one to remember.

Dates through July 2 have now been announced, starting with a showing of Fast Times at Ridgemont High on May 14.

More dates are TBD, with roughly 25 screenings total planned through the end of the summer.

Tickets are on sale starting today for $15, and you’d be advised to scoop them up quick as possible, as all events sold out last year.

On-site parking is extra, so carpooling or usage of public transit is humbly advised.

Oh, and if you’ve never been to one of the Cinespia events, here’s a little promo they produced in 2014 that will offer a little flavor of the experience:
