Outdoor Movie Nights

page_movies Adolescent angst. Raging hormones. Twisted teachers. Barnsdall Art Park Foundation and Joe Dante’s Trailers From Hell present “School Nights,” an outdoor fall film series celebrating the beloved high school movie. It was a “time to remember” (or one to forget). Relive the wonder and terror of your teen years with these five essential films.

Join us on the lush west lawn of Hollyhock House. We have a high resolution screen for your viewing pleasure and surprise guests to introduce the movies, featuring a lineup of special guests and KCRW DJs Dan Wilcox and Marion Hodges spinning from 5:30 until dusk. Get schooled with a curated selection of wine and beers, courtesy of Silverlake Wine, and LA’s finest food trucks. Bring a picnic! You are welcome to bring your own food, soft drinks, and a blanket; however, NO outside alcoholic beverages will be permitted. No dogs are allowed. Movies start at dusk on top of Los Feliz’s scenic Olive Hill. This fundraiser is a 21+ over event.
