5. J.W. Marriott L.A. Live
Address: 900 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles
If you feel like it’s already getting a little too chilly for the go-in-the-pool season, but aren’t ready yet to bid them farewell just yet, linger on for the sit-by-the-pool season and watch movies poolside. While you’re at it, have a delicious dinner and enjoy an evening of sunsets and skyline views at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles L.A. Live.
This beautiful hotel is also an ideal spot for a luxurious staycation in Los Angeles. Check in, spend a fun day in L.A., and come back to the dive-in theater before 8:30 p.m. to enjoy a pool movie night as you wrap up a successful short trip in the City of Angels.
Upcoming screenings: Ironman on August 8, Maleficent on August 22, Legally Blonde on August 29.
6. Seaside Cinema
Seaside Cinema slightly differs from the rest of the dive-in theater experiences on the list—it’s geared more towards private events and ceremonies. Ideal for proposals, birthdays, bachelorettes, anniversaries, and more, Seaside Cinema offers private, pop-up movies in the dreamiest coastal locations in San Diego. All you have to do is book a date, and the company sets up the scene for you to hang out on the sand, under the stars, and in the coziest set-up.
The Classic Cinema experience includes a two-hour booking at sunset, a 100-inch viewing screen, cushioned stadium seating, cozy blankets, and, of course, a film of your choice for a crew of two to twenty people. If you’re booking for a special occasion like a proposal, you can request extra additions to your dive-in cinema experience such as torches, umbrellas, grazing boards, and a photographer to capture the moment.
