The Nerdy Me

Drive-in movie theaters combine two favourite things of Los Angeles - being outside and appreciation for fine movies. With more and more restrictions lifting up, drive-in movie theaters are back in action.

Drive-In at the Park

After a long hiatus, Drive-In at the Park is finally back with an extensive schedule of good classics and a few newer movies.

The movies are now showed at venues in Culver City and Santa Clarita. If you like to have a tailgate picnic or watch the movie from the back of your vehicle, then you are in for a treat.

Unlike the majority of drive-in movie theaters that don't allow this due to safety protocols, Drive-In at the Park allows you to watch the movie however you please.
