Here's to the ones who dream watching La La Land at the Hollywood Bowl...

Yesterday it wasn't just another day of sun in L.A., it was time to celebrate Damien Chazelle's love letter to the sprawling city of stars with an orchestral fireworks spectacular at the Hollywood Bowl.

The film's composer Justin Hurwitz was on hand to conduct proceedings of the movie screening at the iconic outdoor venue, which featured many original cast members, musicians, singers and dancers.

The Hollywood Bowl was jam-packed with all the dreamers who wanted to see the concert world premiere of the Oscar-winning musical's love story between Emma Stone's aspiring actress and Ryan Gosling's pianist with a dream of owning his on jazz club.

If you're a fan of the movie you'd only love the film more after seeing this version accompanied by an orchestra, jazz musicians, dancers, lighting and fireworks effects, at times there was almost too much going on on the screens, on stage and being projected onto the infamous arch.

On the way in, hundreds of people lined up for their special selfie opportunities with the film's key art and others posed next to original costumes featured in the movie.

Fortunately I'd seen some of Mary Zophres Oscar-nominated La La Land costumes on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema and at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum previously.

This extravaganza may have been a non-Bowl lease event but it was certainly a fabulous way to kick off the summer season of outdoor entertainment.
For those of you who can't make it (or afford those expensive ticket prices) here's a video of the fireworks finale that accompanied the end credits.

Let's hope someone in the crowd takes you where you wanna go this long Memorial Day weekend...
