LAist Film Calendar 06/28-07/01: Bloodsucker Beach Bash!

The summer months aren't kind to vampires, although the season does bring the Vampire-Con Film Festival to the New Beverly. This year's blood-sucking bonanza begins Friday with Robert Rodriguez' From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), paired with Mexican horror The Vampire's Coffin (1958). The coffins keep coming Saturday with House of Dark Shadows (1970), the original big-screen version of the supernatural soap, alongside Grave of the Vampire (1974). There's no better sanctuary than a dark theater!

Celebrate the sunlight at Cinefamily with Saturday's Island Summer Party. The all-day affair sets sail with Disney's Swiss Family Robinson (1960) at 4, the infamous Blue Lagoon (1980) around 7, "Bullets, Bombs & Babes" flick Hard Ticket to Hawaii (1987) around 9:30 and a midnight screening of Danny Boyle's The Beach (2000). Hard Ticket producer Arlene Sidaris will appear to introduce that film. Of course, a Cinefamily special event always goes beyond mere movies. Polynesian musicians, fire dancers and a limbo competition between films ensure you'll have as much fun out of your seat as in it.

Then there are times you need to get out of the theater altogether. This weekend's Eat|See|Hear outdoor screening brings Zoolander (2001) to Paul Revere Charter Middle School in Brentwood (check out our intro to the series here). Even the biggest screen looks like it was built for ants compared to this behemoth. Self-described "real raunchy flower punk" band The Orwells kicks off the walk off at 7, with food trucks from Border Grill, Buttermilk, Fatburger, Jogasaki Burrito, Nom Nom, Shrimp Pimp, Steel City Sandwich and Vizzi peddling really really good looking treats.

Full list appears below. See you at the movies!
