Electric Dusk Drive-In plays films from classics to new releases in a nostalgic setting with neon lights, popcorn, and the comfort of your car to transport you back in time. Southern California is the perfect location for a drive-in film, as you can enjoy a film in ideal weather with the top down almost any month of the year. 

    The film selection almost always features something popular, whether it’s a cult classic, a favourite from its decade, or one of today's new releases. One of the most charming aspects of the drive-in is that the iconic LA skyline makes up the backdrop of your viewing.

    Highlights of Electric Dusk Drive-In 

    Many of the film selections are based on the time of year and intended to set a fun atmosphere, such as replaying a film from its historic debut. You can watch the film from your vehicle, or you can choose to bring blankets and cozy-up close to the screen, but that seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. 

    The food served at Electric Dusk Drive-In is considered a great addition to the atmosphere, and many review the food as a step-up from other drive-in locations. Pets are typically welcomed, but it’s worth checking ahead of time in case restrictions are put in place.

    Good to know when visiting Electric Dusk Drive-In 

    Electric Dusk Drive-In considers itself the only drive-in cinema in LA. It's conveniently located a few blocks north of the Glendale Galleria, so many choose the option to spend the day enjoying one of LA’s finest malls and then top it all off with a drive-in film at dusk. 

    Film tickets can be purchased when arriving for the show, but the tickets usually sell out rather quickly, so the drive-in recommends getting tickets ahead of time. Private events and showings are available. The selection of films changes monthly, so it's best to check the website before you come.
