Let's go to the movies on the L.A. River! Help us fund the first ever Bike-In Theater along the banks of the city's best kept secret.

The Goal
We need to raise $10,000 to cover production costs for a Bike-In Movie Theater Series along the L.A. River that's free to the general public. The L.A. River is the city’s most underutilized public resource and with your help we can make it one of the coolest places to hang out in Los Angeles this summer. There is no better way to do that than a fun event that brings the community together that you don’t need money or a car to attend.

The Details

What is a Bike-In Movie Theater? We're glad you asked. It is a pop-up event where we project an awesome movie on a building on a property with a river view. There will be food, drinks and overall merriment.

What will this money actually pay for? Equipment rental and set up, event permits, security, cleanup costs, and the rights to the movie. If we are able to reach our goal, you can expect 3 unique movie going experiences.

L.A. has lots of outdoor cinema, what makes this special? Well, the L.A. River of course! If you come an hour before the show you will have a chance to mingle with other river enthusiasts and discover the possibilities that await you along the L.A. River. You also get to enjoy a seamless car-free riding experience along the 7 mile river-adjacent bike path.What if I don't bike? No one will be turned away. Limited parking is available BUT we encourage you to ride, skate or walk on down.
