The Los Angeles River Revitalization Corp., a nonprofit org aimed at creating recreational areas along the 51-mile waterway from Canoga Park to Long Beach, kicks off its second annual Bike-In Movie program April 26 with free activities leading up to an outdoor screening. “One of our missions is to make the L.A. River a destination for families to come and just hang out,” said Miranda Rodriguez, the organization’s event manager.
Pedal: Attendees can bicycle into and around the host site, Reseda Park, where there also will be a mapping ride for purposes of identifying area businesses and organizations.
Pig out: Two food trucks will be parked in the area.
Preview: A screening of the 1984 original, “The Karate Kid,” part of which was filmed in Reseda, begins at 7:30 p.m. on an inflatable screen. The event is the first of four at various locations throughout the summer.
