Hollywood Roosevelt Drive-In Theater
7000 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood
COVID-19 update: Reserve your drive-in spot in advance for a night at the—outdoor, socially distant—movies. A rooftop with expansive views over the Los Angeles cityscape is iconic, pandemic or no pandemic. And now, with limited social options, a movie night in the coziness of your own car atop a storied hotel rooftop feels like the glamorous vacation we all need. The Hollywood Roosevelt has put a great deal of thought into its drive-in experience—it feels safe and super fun. Order snacks from a retro Airstream, sit back, and enjoy the movie.

L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele Drive-In Movie Night
1534 N McCadden Pl., Hollywood
COVID-19 update: Movies are screened Thursday to Sunday starting at 9pm. The LA edition of the most famous pizzeria in Naples and, arguably the world (courtesy of Eat Pray Love), may be a little glitzier than the original, but the pizza is just as transcendent. Nowadays, Antica Pizzeria da Michele is taking Neapolitan hospitality one step further with a drive-in dinner-and-a-movie experience Thursday through Sunday at 9 p.m. Date night or really any nighttime experience that isn’t dinner-on-the-sofa feels super special, and this one is entirely worth it. Order a proper pizza in the comfort of your car and settle in for a (safe, socially distant) night at the movies.

The Spare Room
7000 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood
With only two beautiful, wooden lanes, you'll have to wait your turn to bowl on most nights here. Fortunately, it's more about the fantastic cocktails and buzzy scene than the sport.
Hollywood Forever Cemetery
6000 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood
As the name suggests, a lot of glamorous silver-screen stars are buried here—but the cemetery has a second life. The beautiful grounds play host to outdoor movie screenings and some of the city’s best concerts.
The Hollywood Bowl
2301 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood
Though parking (and the accompanying traffic) can be a total nightmare, it’s well worth it, because once you’ve settled into your seat, and busted out your picnic dinner and wine, you’re in for one of the more special outdoor concert experiences in the country.
Arclight Cinema Hollywood
6360 W. Sunset Blvd., Hollywood
It always blows visitors minds that at most of the city’s movie theaters, you can pre-book specific seats, meaning that you can eat dinner and wander around until minutes before the show starts, and not have to jockey and jostle for position. We love the Arclight in particular because there’s an on-site bar and during 21+ screenings you can sip your wine while you watch. Locations in Culver City, Hollywood, Pasadena, Santa Monica, and Sherman Oaks.
