The Cinespia Story

The most popular outdoor cinema event in Southern California, Cinespia is celebrated by fans and filmmakers for hosting a relaxed, off-beat experience. Cinespia sold out every one of its events in 2014, hosting over 100,000 audience members.

Founded by entrepreneur John Wyatt in 2002, Cinespia has built an avid, online following of well over 200,000 fans through its fourteen-year history. The organization also hosts screenings, concerts, and film premieres at classic movie palaces in downtown Los Angeles.

Wyatt attributes the success of Cinespia to his belief that “there’s a need in L.A. for people to get together and watch films with each other. That’s how these films were meant to be seen: on the big screen with a large audience, emoting, screaming and laughing. The picnics, the DJs, the community experience, these things transform the movie-going experience.”

Over the years, Cinespia has also become a popular attraction for Hollywood directors, producers and actors. In 2014, Cinespia produced the annual Cinefamily fundraiser with Team Downey, showcasing the films of Robert Downey, Sr. with a benefit hosted by Louis CK at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Cinespia’s stellar array of guest appearances to present the films being shown also include Drew Barrymore, director Cameron Crowe, Paul Reubens, Patricia Arquette, and Questlove.

Past notable events include the premiere screening of the series finale for Breaking Bad at Hollywood Forever, hosted by Aaron Paul to benefit the KIND Campaign, and the Southern California premiere of Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin at The Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

Cinespia’s cemetery screenings include picnic dining, pre-show DJs, and The Cinespia Shop, where fans can purchase custom silkscreen movie posters, t-shirts, and picnic blankets. Every screening also features one of Cinespia’s famous Photo Booths. The Photo Booths are custom designed and built by the Cinespia team, themed to give audience members a chance to “star” in the movie of the week.
