The Montalbán’s outdoor 2018 film screenings on its rooftop event space, in the heart of Hollywood, start tonight! Carrying on the historic venue’s tradition of screening films since 1933, the five month series will run through Wednesday, October 31, 2018.

Foreign films from Spain and Mexico will inaugurate the summer film series – thanks to LA OLA – Independent Films From Spain and Hola Mexico Film Festival – followed by a diverse range of Montalbán-curated films including Black Panther, Grease, Inglorious Bastards, Sunset Blvd., Superbad and many others.

Films are scheduled to run five nights per week – every Tuesday through Saturday – with two screenings on Friday and Saturday evenings. Doors open at 6:00 pm and films start screening 10 minutes after sunset. Prices are either $10, $15 or $18.

The Montalbán is also pleased to announce its new culinary partner – Umami Burger.

The 2018 Montalbán Summer Movie Series kicks off tonight as a screening location for a portion of LA OLA’s annual Los Angeles showcase. Enjoy some of Spain’s best independent contemporary films during its fourth annual LA edition, which runs for four nights from Thursday, May 31 through Sunday, June 3, 2018 at three different Hollywood and Echo Park locations. Attend the first, second and third evening of the showcase on the Montalbán rooftop with the films Júlia Ist (May 31st), Donkeyote (June 1st) and Niñato (June 2nd).

Next, Hola Mexico Film Festival presented by DishLATINO – celebrating its 10th anniversary – will screen three of its nine evenings on the Montalbán rooftop – from Monday, June 4 through Wednesday, June 6 (and two more Hola evenings will take place inside the theater on Thursday, June 7th and Friday, June 8th). The rooftop screenings will include Amores Perros (June 4th), Pan’s Labyrinth (June 5th) and Tu Mama Tambien (June 6th).
