Thursday, June 27

Summer is the perfect time for movies under the Los Angeles stars. SAG-AFTRA Foundation will present Game Changers LA, an outdoor screening series for the star-struck. The four-day event will feature screenings of the pilot episode of Stranger Things 3 (a few days ahead of its Netflix premiere), Boyz n the Hood, Toy Story, and Thelma & Louise. Special guests and cast members will take the stage at the Ford Theatre in the Hollywood Hills before each screening for a pre-show conversation. Laurence Fishburne, Nia Long and Tyra Farrell will show up for Boyz; John Ratzenberger, John Morris, Ralph Eggleston, and Bob Pauley will appear to talk about their work with Pixar. Stranger Things star David Harbour will discuss his involvement with the smash streaming hit. Bring a picnic dinner and enjoy.
