The Silver Lake Picture Show is a free summer community event that screens popular and culturally significant feature films and introduces them with short films made by local filmmakers and live performances from local bands.
Here’s our lineup for the Summer!
The Picture Show aims to:
- Provide a common space where artists can connect with one another to create new collaborations and share their work with their community
- Help non-profit organizations spread the word about the beneficial work they are doing for the community
- Help local businesses connect with their customers on a personal level
By supporting the Picture Show, you support:
- Local Businesses
- Our Community Building Partners
- Yourselves (7 awesome summer nights)
- Your neighbors (7 awesome summer nights)
With over 500 attendees per show, and over 10,000 attendees in our first three seasons, the Picture Show transforms the Sunset Triangle Plaza each Thursday evening during the summer into a bustling community center where attendees show up early to shop and dine, and stay late to drink and socialize.
Nearly four years ago, for the first time in Los Angeles history, the city conducted an experiment in community building by closing a portion of a street in Silver Lake to automobile traffic and re-opening it for pedestrian use. The Silver Lake Picture Show was the first event at the new Sunset Triangle Plaza and it is still the longest running.
Four years later, the Picture Show is considered a community staple and has become the primary example, for the city and their community building partners, of the potential that can be unlocked by opening the streets to pedestrians, artists and community members.
Your support can help keep the Picture Show free for the entire community.
