CALIFORNIA—Hollywood will soon be opening a new drive in theater for previewing indie films.
The Arena Cinelounge Drive-In will be open to the public starting December 1, 2020. The Drive-in will be located at 1625 N. Las Palmas Avenue which is behind the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood.
”Cinelounge is about discovering great new movies and classics every night of the week in our neighborhood Hollywood. Movies you can’t see anywhere else. Thrillers, Action, Documentaries, Horror, Comedy, Concert Films and much more. I’ve been doing this since 2011 and I have a love for movies and for the movie-going experience. For me I’ve always loved intimate venues and so it’s not surprising that the majority of our Cinelounge venues aim to maintain such an aspect for the story and viewers. Our drive-in experience is limited to (25) vehicles per show. We’re spacing it out so every vehicle has elbow room. In addition our restrooms in the theater lobby are closer to the drive-in vehicles than another drive-in restroom to vehicles per capita. and that I’m very proud that we always go above and beyond in our offerings to patrons to offer a well thought out, first class, safe, fun enjoyable and comfortable experience. We’re going to have lighting amazing movies, special events, surprise guests, movie trivia games, daytime events and so much more. Cinelounge is not just a movie theater, we’re a community of movie lovers. And last but certainly not least, we make our own gourmet popcorn that is bar none (10 various) amazing blends of the best movie themed gourmet popcorn you will ever taste” stated Arena Cinelounge’ founder Christian Meoli to Canyon News.
