"B-Movies and Bad Movies" at the La Brea Tar Pits and the Natural History Museum



The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits are bringing back their popular "B-Movies and Bad Science" movie series for a third season.

The movie series, which runs from June 26 through August 29, takes place outdoors -- and the museums recommend picnic baskets and blankets.

At the Natural History Museum in Exposition Park, the movie takes place on the South Lawn. At the La Brea Tar Pits, the screening takes place on the grounds surrounding the Page Museum.

The movie screenings include a "lighthearted discussion" led by the museums' science experts, as well as B-movie memorabilia from the Natural History Museum's collection.

Movies start at 8 p.m. It's free -- and yes, "alcoholic beverages are permitted for those over 21." Done.
