Barnsdall Art Park Outdoor Movie Screen

Outdoor Movie Night at Barnsdall Art Park

A few weeks ago, Eric and I visited Barnsdall Art Park for an outdoor screening of the 1976 classic horror film “Carrie.”

This was our first time attending an event at Barnsdall Art Park, and we enjoyed every minute. Located on top of a hill in southern Los Feliz, the park offers spectacular views of the city.

The Barnsdall Art Park Foundation holds events at the park throughout the year. I first heard about them from a coworker who raved about their Friday night summertime wine tastings. We missed the opportunity to attend one of those this year, but were just in time for the outdoor movie series!

Neither Eric nor I had seen “Carrie,” and since we were on a classic horror film kick this October, decided to buy tickets.

The cost of our tickets went to benefit the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation and the programs they put on. It also paid for a selection of wine and beer courtesy of Silverlake Wine. Score.

We arrived early, blanket in tow, and snagged a great seat towards the front. With our spot secure, we got started on our most important task of the evening:

Enjoying a variety of fine alcoholic beverages.

The Foundation was also kind enough to have some food trucks available, which offered a selection of yummy sandwiches. Picnic dinners were allowed, but with the promise of food trucks on the premises, Eric and I opted to try these instead. Maybe the wine played a part, but we were not disappointed.

The movie was enjoyable, and was a little different than I expected (in a good way).

Our screening of “Carrie” was the last in their series for this year, but I’m hoping they’ll do more of these in the future! I’ll definitely be going back. Maybe I’ll see you there?
