Intimate amphitheatre that doesn't get enough love due to it's overshadowing sibling Hollywood Bowl. Ford theater is cozy, with a beautiful backdrop of trees and plants. Makes a great place to spend a romantic evening. Also it has a lot of comfortable tables and chairs to picnic before you get there. Food and alcohol is allowed.
Koffeehouse's 4th Annual "Evening of Independence". Boy do the Ford knows how to rock the house! This Amphitheatre has the most perfect location ever being constructed right on the backdrop of the Hollywood hills! The entrance almost gives you the sensation you are entering a castle, then when you are inside there is a very chic picnic area with tables and chairs, and a mini stage for artist to show their many talents while you enjoy something to eat or drink. We brought our own picnic basket with food, drinks, and dessert. After enjoying an evening at the picnic area, we walked around to check out the bids being offered, water fountains, architecture, and other services provided. We were looking at other people's yummy food and drinks as the Ford also has a store with gourmet foods (which looked delicious!) and wine. After the Plaza we went to the main event inside the theatre and WOW! The entire place is surrounded with great decor, including the backdrop of the Hollywood hills, which blend right through the stage. The back of the stage is the actual mountain! It is entirely open to the sky, so it can get cold at night, but we had cozy blankets to keep us warm. Parking was very well organized and inexpensive. It was our first time, and I can assure you we will be going back very soon, as our experience was unforgettable. I keep calling it one of the best days of my life-ever!
Underrated but still beloved, this intimate outdoor venue is one of L.A.'s most beautiful spots for music among the hills and under the stars..
The Hollywood Hills are alive with the sound of music: Nestled in an L.A. County regional park in the hills, this 1,241-seat outdoor amphitheatre is set against a backdrop of cypresses and chaparral. Though its ceiling is the open sky, the space is surprisingly intimate--no matter what seat you get, nobody is more than 96 feet away from the stage. In 2000, the entryway at Edison Plaza underwent a $1.6 million renovation and now features winding paths from the box office, a waterfall, lush foliage and designated picnic areas. At the top of the entryway is Edison Plaza, which leads to the 87-seat indoor theatre space, [Inside] The Ford, as well as spots to eat, shop and hang out during intermission.
