There are so many amazing blockbusters hitting the big screens this summer! What better time to get your cinema on than a Saturday when the weather makes you feel like sulking? Our top picks: Lola Versus with Greta Gerwig and Pixar's Brave (who didn't tear up a bit watching that trailer?).
ArcLight Theater Cinerama Dome, 6360 West Sunset Boulevard (at Ivar Avenue); 323-464-1478.
This is the one month the concrete jungle of L.A. won't scorch the hide from your back, so we highly recommend you pack in a full day of fun. Start at FIDM's Lucien Lelong spread of couture gowns from the icon's empire (admission's free!). If you haven't heard of him — even more reason to pop by. You can thank the '20s wunderkind for hand-picking designers like Balmain, Dior, and Givenchy — and he dressed screen sirens like Marlene Dietrich on the reg. After you've gotten your fashion fix, here's an entire itin to hit up afterwards.
Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Museum, 919 South Grand Avenue (at West 9th Street); 213-623-5821.

Situated right next to The Brewery Colony, this is your spot to knock a few back if you're feeling a Sunday funday (or funk-day because of the icky elements outside). It's got custom IPAs galore, all made with local ingredients. The venue often hosts tastings, too, so check the schedule for a slew of ice-cold brews!
