This Summer Downtown Has Not One, But Four Outdoor Movie Series
When it comes to enjoying a night at the movies in Downtown Los Angeles, people don’t have to put up with the confines of four walls, a roof and paying $6 for a small popcorn.
This summer, Downtown movie fans can take advantage of four outdoor movie series. The events offer everything from classics to comedies to family friendly fare.
Some even throw live music and food trucks into the mix, and one series is free. Here is a rundown of the al fresco film action.
LA Bike Week round-up: Group rides and giveaways celebrate cycling all week
Metro’s Bike Week L.A. began Monday and continues through the weekend in an effort to encourage Angelenos to dust off their two-wheels and ride, for their health and for the environment.
“About 40 percent of all car trips are one mile or less,” Lynne Goldsmith, bicycle program manager for Metro told The Source. “If we can encourage people to make some of those trips on a bicycle, we are helping to reduce road congestion and improve air quality.”
Spring Street Park to Open in June
Historic Core residents have a reason to cheer: The Spring Street Park is scheduled to open in June, two months ahead of schedule.
Actually, there’s a second bit of good news: Area stakeholders have come up with a plan to operate and maintain the park, rebounding from a fumbled, divisive effort in 2011.
Create Fixate’s “Constellations” Coming to Downtown Los Angeles
“The telescope of our soul observes moments in time and our place in space” Michelle Berc and Jessica Viola

Brewery Battle in the Arts District
When it comes to Downtown nightlife, no one has a better pedigree than Cedd Moses.
His company 213 Nightlife operates eight Downtown bars. The establishments, from the whiskey emporium Seven Grand to mixology mecca The Varnish, have earned alcohol-infused accolades and made Moses a pioneer of Downtown’s renaissance.
That reputation, however, means little to some would-be neighbors of Moses’ latest vision — a pizza-purveying brewpub in the Arts District.
Moses has applied for permits to transform the old Crazy Gideon’s building at 826 Traction Ave. into a 17,000-square-foot destination where patrons can eat pizza, sip craft beer made in an on-site brewery and use 27 skeeball lanes. It would take over the first floor of the structure. A separate, 89-seat cocktail bar with pool and ping-pong is slated for the basement.
May 1st - 31st

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, May 9, 7-9PM
Coinciding with the Downtown Art Walk
Show runs May 9 – June 5
The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is proud to present a three person exhibition of works by David Jang, Olga Lah, and Diane Silver. Bound by themes of mortality, self-reflection, and environmental reorientation, each artist presents a unique catalyst to re-contextualizing our surroundings.
Each artist employs humble and innocuous materials in their works, objects commonly used and disposed of in our daily lives. These objects are then arranged en-masse to subvert their own utilitarian purposes, and transform the space they inhabit.
