3. Movies at the Vista
Sure, you can stream just about anything these days, but no home theater setup can equal the experience of watching a great movie on the real big screen, while munching on some fresh popcorn and cheering along with other die hard movie fans. Luckily, there’s Secret Movie Club. These cinephiles lovingly curate a series of cult favorites, nostalgic throwbacks and classic films and bring them to Los Angeles’ historic Vista Theatre in beautiful 35 mm prints, so you can experience them again — or perhaps for the first time — the way they were meant to be seen: in a theater!
Share a memorable and meaningful evening with your family and friends at the Lights of Dreams Lantern Event! Come decorate your own unique lantern and launch it among the thousands of water and sky lanterns at Echo Park Lake. Illuminated paper lanterns symbolize our hope for a brighter future, appreciation for our loved ones, and memories of those who passed away, while lotus lanterns represent rebirth, purity and life. In contrast, sky lanterns are released into the sky with written wishes. The higher the lanterns rise, the more likely the wishes will come true. Through our event, we hope to create an incredible experience that brings families and friends together to celebrate the meaning of life and spread hope, peace and dreams.
