On Thursday, June 27, 2019, Mid City West Community Council held its second annual Movie Night in the Park partnering with the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum to provide a sneak peek of the “Second Home Serpentine Pavilion” by Selgascano. (https://www.pavilion.secondhome.io/) The new art installation features a maze of rainbow-colored tunnels where attendees could wander through and take selfies. Attendees also enjoyed free hot dogs at the Great Lawn courtesy of Pink’s Hot Dogs, free coffee courtesy of Tentera Coffee Roasters, churros and rainbow sno-cones.
The event drew a crowd of over 400. At sundown, guests enjoyed the evening with an outdoor screening of “Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark” courtesy of Paramount Studios and were treated to free popcorn courtesy of Whole Foods and glow bracelets.
We would like to thank our event organizers Andrew Jhun (First Vice Chair), Dina Brown and Emily Uyeda Kantrim (outgoing board members) for their hard work in hosting this wonderful neighborhood event. “We’re really happy to hear that this event made people fall in love with our neighborhood even more than before—it was truly a labor of love.” said Jhun.
Councilman Paul Koretz for Los Angeles City Council District 5 and Dr. Lori Bettison-Varga of the NHMLAC were on hand to attend the event. Koretz presented certificates of appreciation on behalf of the City to Jhun, Brown and Uyeda Kantrim.
