Rooftop movie LA | Qwil luxury apartment

Street Food Cinema

Street Food Cinema is more than just an outdoor movie theater, it’s an experience. The screenings can be found in different parks around LA with an assortment of food and live music performances all on top of an outdoor movie on the big screen. On July 31st a movie will be shown at Griffith Park a short 2 miles from your Qwil Apartment. Make sure to purchase your tickets beforehand. 

Poolside Dinner & A Movie JW Marriott L.A. LIVE 

Indulge in a romantic poolside dinner and an outdoor movie at the JW Marriott rooftop. For $45, you will be able to sink into a comfy couch with an appetizer, an entree, and bottomless popcorn while you watch a movie outside alongside a sparkling pool only a short distance from Qwil luxury apartments. Make sure to bring a jacket or blanket for chilly nights. 

Boat Cinema 

You heard us right, a boat cinema not a drive-in movie theater. Boat Cinema is LA’s first outdoor movie experience from your own personal mini boat. Expect a magical night in one of the most stunning settings in Los Angeles with food, drinks, music, and a movie. 45 minutes away from Qwil apartments, you will enjoy the night on Castaic Lake for an unforgettable evening outside of the city. 


Located at Hollywood Forever Cemetery less than one mile from Qwil Apartments, Cinespia brings the outdoor movie magic to life with screenings of classic films with over 30 events per year. This season, Cinespia is presented by Amazon Studios which marks its 20th anniversary of the first and longest-running outdoor movie series in LA. Make sure to purchase your tickets beforehand and to arrive early, it is a popular affair, to say the least.
