We’re mentioned in an article about the Navy giving Hawaii $30M to fund clean-tech start ups…
Spring is here and, in Los Angeles, that means taking full advantage of our warm weather with picnics, barbecues, bike rides and all manner of good fun. With its newly launched Kickstarter project, the Los Angeles Revitalization Corporation (LARRC) is proposing a gem of an addition to our itinerary — a bike-in movie theater series.
Riffing off of the 1950s tradition of drive-ins, the LARRC is asking Angelenos to tune-up their bikes, make use of the bike path by the river, and take in a free movie at the end. If you don’t have a bike, don’t worry — the event will be open to the public, but they encourage attendees, skate, take the bus or walk to the venue.
“So much of the work revitalizing the Los Angeles River is long-term and very macro,” says Miranda Rodriguez, community and events coordinator for LARRC. “We wanted to create this meaningful way for people to participate.”
The LARRC launched its Kickstarter campaign earlier this week, and more details are coming together. Just yesterday, LARRC secured the Janel Glass warehouse and parking lot to host the event.
Expect more than a movie at the bike-in, says Rodiguez. “Come bring your blankets and, if you can, come even an hour before.” The Los Angeles County Bike Coalition (LACBC) will host feeder rides to help people get on the bike path. LARRC is also working with the Northeast Los Angeles Riverfront Collaborative (NELA RC) on a mobile mapping initiative, where they’ll ask cyclists to ride around the neighborhood and take stock of their favorite places in the community. The information will go into an online community guide that will help future curious Angelenos explore this part of Los Angeles.
