Visit Cinespia, Los Angeles
Cinespia is an organization that hosts on-site screenings of classic films in and around Los Angeles, California. Launched in 2002, Cinespia shows films from the 1930s through the 1990s mostly in open-air settings at historic locations. Its most popular series runs weekly from May through September on Saturday (and occasionally Sunday) nights at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. In addition, it screens films, both contemporary and canonical, at other locations throughout the year.
Cinespia has appeared in the 2008 Best of L.A. issue of the LA Weekly and was named on the “16 Best Things in L.A.” by Los Angeles magazine. According to Vanity Fair: “Cinespia captures the excitement of a drive-in movie date night of the 1950s but with a decidedly campy twist.”
