Here are our suggestions of things to do in Los Angeles this weekend…
2015 LA Beach Cities Modern Home Tour
We love Modern. Modern design, Modern architecture, modern living. More than just an aesthetic, “Modern” embodies new construction techniques and materials, and new ways of addressing old problems. “Modern” is not just what you live in, but how you live. From attainability to sustainability, the singular thread that connects “Modern” is an outlook that embraces new possibilities in living and lifestyle. We’re returning to highlight and enjoy an exciting day touring some of the finest examples of modern architecture in Venice, Santa Monica, Hermosa Beach and more!
Saturday, September 12th
11:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Various locations around Venice, Manhattan Beach, Santa Monica, and Hermosa Beach. Please see Modern Home to buy tickets and for more details!
Rooftop Film Club
The masters of outdoor movie viewing are finally bringing London’s favorite summer screening series to the rooftops of LA. Known for excellent venues and a steady supply of snacks and booze, Rooftop Film Club is your snazzy, comfortable, and less stressful alternative to other summer outdoor movie screenings. Setting up shop on top of the Montálban Theatre on Vine, and taking full advantage of its beautiful city view, Rooftop Film Club promises to offer some unique and incredible moviegoing opportunities from August through September. You don’t even need to bring your own blanket and camping chair—Rooftop Film Club sets up rows of lawn chairs on the roof and blankets are available for a cozy experience. And instead of listening to the movie over loudspeakers (and, let’s face it, the guy on the next blanket echoing every line), you’ll get a set of headphones so you won’t miss a word.

Long Beach Comic Con
Long Beach Comic Con, now in its seventh year, is a low-key convention that allows fans to mingle with artists, writers, actors and cosplayers without fear of trampling. This year, the event includes the Columbia Memorial Space Center presenting Space Expo — two days of panels (such as “Sci-Fi vs. Reality”) from JPL notables, as well as an exhibit with robotics, 3-D printing and a space suit. Whether you’re there for the space show, the celebrities (Chloe Bennet, John Barrowman) or the comic books (illustrators Marc Silvestri and Adam Kubert), you’ll be supporting your local Comic Con — not that chaotic melee in San Diego.
