LA Outdoor Movie Summer Screenings

May 30, 2012

With Memorial Day Weekend crossed off the calendar, summer has unofficially arrived elsewhere and is very much in full swing in LA! One of my favorite things to do during the summer is to kick back and catch a movie with friends. Leave it to LA to take backyard movies and drinks up a notch! Here’s a list of summer screenings in LA that make you grab your friends and pack the cutest picnic basket, don’t forget most of these are BYOB!

The Original – CINESPIA
Cinespia’s crediting with starting the trend! Angelenos have been paying their respects to old Hollywood classics for almost a decade now every Saturday night at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Tickets are $10 each and visitors enjoy classics like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Lolita while sitting on the cemetery’s central lawn. I encourage you to purchase tickets online before hand because the event’s growing popularity leads to sold out movies most of the time.

Days: Saturdays
Location: Hollywood Forever Cemetery 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard  Los Angeles, CA 90038
Tickets: $10 at the door, $11 pre-sale
Parking: $10 pre-sale pass, or $10 cash at a near by lot

LA Public Transportation: Porn and Lost Dreams

April 17, 2012

Exhibit A: A fake subway map drafted by Numan Parada, an L.A.-area mapmaker.

 

Exhibit B: A map of the former Pacific Electric Railway (begin crying NOW)

Is public transportation really that hard to imagine for LA County? No it’s not, dreaming about it is one thing but building’s a whole different beast.

#MakeItCount

From CNNgo:

When Nike hired director Casey Neistat and editor Max Joseph to make an advertisement for the Nike FuelBand (an athletic-performance tracking device), the Oregon-based company expected the pair to hunker down in their New York studios and come out with a killer spot highlighting the slogan, “Make It Count.”

What Nike didn’t count on was what the duo did next.

Instead of producing the agreed-upon treatment showing how everyday people are making their lives count, Neistat and Joseph took the money and ran — right around the globe.

In the vernacular of the trade, they just did it.

For 10 days they circled the globe having one mammoth adventure until the entire stash (“It was a lot of money,” is all the guys will cop to) ran out.

The pair racked up 34,000 miles, dropped in on three continents, 13 countries and 16 cities. The result is a “Make It Count” travel video diary that’s gone viral.
