Summer is now officially in full swing, and that means we can spend those warm nights picnicking under the stars and watching some of our favorite cult and classic movies. Los Angeles' fave, Cinespia, just announced their lineup of film screenings for August at the Hollywood Forever cemetery—and we have to say, we're pretty excited about some of them.

On August 15, Cinespia will be bringing back their annual "Movies All Night" event, which is basically an outdoor slumber party. This year's theme is apparently nostalgic '90s teen flicks. They'll be screening Can't Hardly Wait (ah, remember Ethan Embry?) first and then showing Scream (Skeet Ulrich!) at midnight. The party will continue on to 4 a.m.

Here's Cinespia's complete schedule for August:

August 1: Apocalypse Now
August 8: It Happened One Night
August 15: Can't Hardly Wait and Scream (for 4th Annual Movies All Night)
August 22: Pee Wee's Big Adventure
August 29: The Virgin Suicides
