Earlier this month the Hollywood "Almost Free" Outdoor Cinema
hosted an '80s night with a screening of "Pretty in Pink". Movie-goers came in swarms, dressed in poofy pink and metallic blue prom dresses, ready to show their stuff in costume and dance contests. The outdoor movie event also became a tribute to filmmaker John Hughes, who died shortly before the screening.
The outdoor cinema is held in the parking lot of an old Circuit City on Sunset Blvd. They screen cult classics and B movies, but "Pretty in Pink" drew an unprecedented crowd. The 20 and 30 age group loved this particular movie because they could identify with its misfit characters. It's a unique opportunity to watch an old favorite movie under the stars and flashback to the '80s with prom dress-up and dance contests.
Hollywood "Almost Free" Outdoor Cinema
will continue to screen outdoor movies until Aug. 29th.
