"Swim-Up" at Sunset+Vine

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Considering how often we're at the Arclight or up the block at Daddy's or The Well, it's surprising that we've never actually stepped foot in Sunset+Vine. We've never had cause to check out the Border's (which is the only thing we ever notice when we fly past the garish building) or to find out what's going on at Zen Zoo Tea and Kabuki Sushi.

Obviously, however, somebody is utilizing the shopping center/Apartment Complex. SSR Reality just bought Sunset+Vine from Canyon-Johnson Urban Fund for $165 million. That's a tidy little $40 million profit for the development firm. Our question is who knew the place had an inside poolside movie theater?

We want to know how this works. What does "swim-up" mean? Do you watch the entire film in the water? Do they only show Blue Crush and Jaws? Our curiosity has gotten the better of us.
