Los Angeles magazine and ArcLight Cinemas Present: Road Trip Movies!


Everyone loves a great road trip. Our March issue (on newsstands February 27th) celebrates the classic form of travel with ten custom-built routes featuring destinations ranging from Zion National Park to Desert Hills Premium Outlets. But we didn’t stop there.

Some of the best cinema has been born out of the road trip storyline—Thelma & Louise, Little Miss Sunshine, and Sideways, to name a few. In honor of our March issue, we’ve partnered with ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood to bring you a month-long series of seven classic road trip flicks that’ll have you itching to pack up and hit the highway. The full list of films along with a link to reserve tickets is available on ArcLight’s website, and you can find a calendar of events below.

Buckle up, Angelenos—we’re going for a ride.
