Drop Dead Gorgeous Double Feature!

The bad and the beautiful assemble for a night of crazy, sexy, cruel fun. Beauty is sin deep in a duo of deliciously off-beat films that prove pretty hurts: Death Becomes Her and Jennifer’s Body.

First up: Death Becomes Her. Hell hath no fury like Goldie Hawn scorned. It’s beauty vs. beauty when a woman rivals her husband’s mistress (Meryl Streep) in a wicked game of ravishing seduction. Can a deal with the devilish Isabella Rossellini have help one reign over the rest? Or is a soul a terrible thing to waste? At midnight, join maven Megan Fox and sweetheart Amanda Seyfried in a cult classic Jennifer’s Body with Diablo Cody’s mile-a-minute dialogue that’s sure to set tongues blazing. Best friends become fiery frenemies when one goes from high school queen to queen of the damned. Isn’t prom the perfect place to battle your demons?

Across almost 7 miles of West Hollywood, Hollywood, and East Hollywood, there is a LOT to see and do both on and just off the CicLAvia route. Take a look at some of the highlights here, but it's far from an exhaustive list. One of the best parts of an open streets event is discovering the things you would never notice if you sped past in a car. From neighborhood restaurants and shops to murals and scenic views, there is so much you can see when you walk, or skate or bike, or pedicab ride along by it.
