LA is full of movie stars and cinema, so naturally, there is no better place in the country to have a unique movie-watching experience. You’ll never want to watch a movie at a regular theater again after seeing the film at one of these spots.

Watch Movies in a Cemetery

Watching movies with dead people isn’t as weird as it sounds. In fact, watching movies with dead people is one of the most popular things to do in LA. Cinespia’s summer movie series at Hollywood Forever Cemetery offers cult classics, great music and an unforgettable time with your friends. As we said, the cemetery is a popular place to be in the summer, so make sure to arrive early to grab a good spot. Doors open at 6:45 – and yes, you can bring all of the beer, wine and snacks your heart desires (within reason). If you’re visiting outside of the cemetery movie series schedule, don’t fret; Cinespia also screens classic movies at unique movie palaces around the city.

Get More Amazing Views, Drinks, and Eats

The Melrose Rooftop cinema is similar to the LA Rooftop Cinema club in the aspect of execution, but the experience is different. This rooftop cinema is located on the roof of E.P. & L.P. – one of West Hollywood’s most popular restaurant/bar spots. Chow down on some drool-worthy Asian cuisine at E.P., head up to the L.P. rooftop bar for a signature cocktail and music and end your night watching a movie on the big screen. Most importantly, you will get more than just a cool city view at this location. This rooftop offers breathtaking and picturesque views of the Hollywood Hills and the Sunset Strip. It may be a little hard to concentrate on the movie with such spectacular views in the distance.
