Cinema Paradiso-Oscars Outdoors

Cinema Paradiso

Last of the Oscars Outdoors Screenings!

Located between DeLongpre Ave. and Fountain Ave. and between Vine and Ivar. The campus is accessible via the Metro Red Line traina and the Metro Local 210 bus.

Free parking is located behind the Pickford Center for Motion Pciture Study (really? really?? cool:)

Enter from Homewood Ave. off Vine St. one block North of Fountain Ave. I'll be standing there with a Groovy People sign when the gates open. If you get there late, text me and I'll tell you where we are or come get you once you get to the lawn area.

The lot opens 90 minutes prior to the event and closes 30 minutes afterwards. Picnic baskets, beer and wine are permitted and highly encouraged:) There will also be food trucks there. No pets or smoking.

Tickets for this are free but you still need to order them online, I think. Gates open at 6:30 and movie starts at sunset. I'll be there at 6:30 to chill, chat and drink with you all. But sunset is looking like almost 8:00ish p.m. these days.

Tickets are $5 or $3 for students. Can order tickets below. They go on sale June 28th so it's best to order them right away as they do sell out.

    I couldn't find the Meet-up but met others and had a great time. The movie was beautifully moving and the sound enthralling. Great venue, but a large Meet-up sign inside would have been helpful.

      I did walk around with a sign:( sorry we missed you!

    SoCal Sunset, I so agree.

    I'm totally coming to this...sound way better than watching movies alone!

    New Scoop! I got tickets from Bill, thanks so much Bill! SOOO, I will go inside at 6:30 and set up camp and them come back outside to check in with those of you waiting in the will call line so you know who I am and where I will be. I'll also try to scalp some tickets for you guys from people waiting in line:) My number again-please text (it's easier)[masked]-4595. Side note: bring WARM clothes to wear! It gets pretty darn damp and cold at night there. Bring a blanket unless traveling makes it hard for you which in that case, I will have an extra blanket or two set up for those of you taking public transportation. Bring any snacks, food, and liquor you need! Should be fun! Come early so we can enjoy each others company before the movie starts!

      They do check for hard licqour (and wea[pons) so keep that on the down low should you be so inclined

    I have a pair of tickets but can't use because of a conflicting event this Saturday night.

    August 22, 2013

    • Lisa V.

      Hey Bill, sorry you can't make it but if you still have the tickets, I'll PayPal you. Let me know. Thanks!

      August 22, 2013

    • Bill

      Lisa, I am holding the pair for you. -Bill

      August 22, 2013

  • Will A.

    I bought an extra ticket.

    August 19, 2013

    • Beatrice

      It looks like Lisa is taking Bill's so I'll be happy to buy your extra ticket. I can't be there until about 7:30 though. Can I call you when I get there?

      August 22, 2013

    • Will A.

      That's fine. I will be there.

      August 22, 2013

  • Lisa V.

    The tickets have been sold out for over a month. However, I am getting there at 6:30 to wait in the WILL CALL line as I don't have a ticket myself. If you get there early, you are first in line for a ticket when they release them at 7:30. For those of you that have a ticket, Will, is going to be going inside to reserve a spot for our group. I believe he is trying for a section that is close to the roped off chair area as well as the area for blankets (there's a rope that separates the two) so both blanket and chair peeps can be accommodated. It's best to take my number: (213)[masked] and call me if you have questions and can't find me. However, they do not release the will call tickets until 7:30 so I will be in that line and you can find me there. Also, there are people in line that have already purchased tickets and have extra and you guys are more than welcome to buy a ticket off of someone in line. I will be doing this if someone has one.

  • Sorina

    Are the tickets free or do I have to pay on line.
    BTW the showing on the 24th is sold out.

    August 20, 2013

  • Corinne R.

    Did I already buy 2 tix for the 24th? My notes to myself say I did. Thanx,

    August 20, 2013

  • Beatrice

    I don't have a ticket but I will wait with Lisa in the will call line.

    I can't wait! Sounds so fun. Looking forward to meeting y'all : )

  • SoCal S.

    Hello, I'm new to the group and will be there early to get a ticket. I hope there will be a spot for my low chair!

    August 11, 2013

  • Corinne R.

    Hi Groovy People. I got there about 6:50. Never saw a sign, didn't know where to meet U folks.

    August 11, 2013

  • Will A.

    I would be glad to. Know that there are different "low back" chairs. They made me move back last week.

    August 6, 2013

    • Lisa V.

      Thanks Will, you rock!

      August 9, 2013

  • Lisa V.

    OK, so here's the scoop, folks. Last time I went without a ticket and I for sure got in as did the 4 people waiting with me. HOWEVER, they don't release the will call tickets until 7:30 which means, anyone who doesn't have a ticket has to wait in the will call line so they aren't able to secure a seat. SOOOOOO....I'm asking that those of you that already have tickets as you pass me in the will call line on your way inside, could you be kind enough to sort of set up camp for the group?

    I'm hoping there are a few of you with tickets already that wouldn't mind doing this together. I'll give you my big blankets to spread out to make room for all the groovy folks coming! I'm also bringing a low chair so if we could find a section right by the rope and put the chairs in back of it and the blankets in front of the rope, we can accommodate both chair loungers and lawn loungers at the same time.

    Thanks!

    August 6, 2013

  • Corinne R.

    I am Jazzed about going to this AND meeting U folks. I have referred to myself as The Grooviest Chic in town Forever!!! Seeya there.

    July 29, 2013

  • Will A.

    I can do that. And I have an extra chair for someone who may not.

    July 28, 2013

  • Zan Dubin S.

    Wish I could....

    July 24, 2013

  • Lisa V.

    Hey everyone, I think I'm going to try to find a low chair to take this time as it got a little uncomfortable for me laying on the ground which means I have to sit in the section which allows chairs. So, if anyone wants to bring chairs, my suggestion is that we pick a space on the borderline between chairs and blankets so the people who bring chairs can sit right beside the people who bring blankets. I'll need someone to help with this as I have to wait in the will call line to get my tickets so whomever has a ticket already, can go inside and snag a spot on the chair/blanket border.

    Buy tickets to this sold out screening as they are released by checking the direct ticket site link http://sa1.seatadvisor.com/sabo/servlets/EventSearch?presenter=AMPAS&venue=ACADEMY

  • Melissa

    So come and take a chance?

    July 8, 2013

  • Will A.

    The people at the venue have said that, despite selling out tickets, they have never been at full capacity. So, they suggest you show up early (by the time gates open at 6:30) and you should be able to get tickets same day. So how many people got tickets?

    July 8, 2013

  • Qui D.

    it's sold out and i did not get my ticket, darn it : (

    July 8, 2013

  • Melissa

    Looks like it is sold out already anything else coming up oh and do the stand buy people ever get in

  • driving miss d.

    The atmos and vibes and peeps and flick sound too groovy for my shoes, too groovy for my hat...Can we discretely BYOB & snacking picnic food?

    1 · May 24, 2013

    • driving miss d.

      driving did her research and went on actual website; yes, it is OK to bring picnic fare, discretely packaged fermented beverages, lawn chairs, etc. Aware that most of my groovy new friends have their own personal assistants: we can't go online to order tix till June 28th--as noted above in Lisa's description. Summertime. Outdoor film. Groovy friends. Doesn't get better than that.
