    Where to watch ‘Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour’ in Orange County
    • October 10, 2023

    Taylor Swift fans in Southern California will get a second chance to see her SoFi Stadium show when “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” concert film comes to theaters on Oct. 13. The movie was filmed during the Los Angeles concerts in August.

    Those who attended the first three night of her shows in Los Angeles were the first to get wind that an Eras Tour film would be coming out. Some fans assumed it would go straight to streaming like her previous projects “Taylor Swift: The 1989 World Tour” that premiered on Apple Music, “Taylor Swift Reputation Stadium Tour” available on Netflix and “Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions” which can be watched on Disney+.

    However, on Aug. 31, Swift took to social media to drop the trailer for The Eras Tour Concert Film and announce it would be released in theaters in North America. A month later she shared that it would instead be coming to theaters worldwide.

    Bringing the Eras Tours to cinemas is allowing many fans to not only relive the experience, but for some, it’s an opportunity to see the concert for the first time.

    Things to know before you go:

    In less than 24 hours the concert film had broken AMC’s U.S. record for the highest ticket sales revenue during a single day in their 103-year history. The movie theatre chain later announced that the film had already surpassed $100 million in global advance ticket sales.

    While there are still plenty of shows available for the Oct. 13 opening night, some in demand times and locations have already sold out.

    Tickets start a $19.89, a nod to her next re-record album “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” which will be released Oct. 27, 2023

    For those looking for exclusive merchandise options, Cinemark, AMC, Regal and Galaxy Theaters are all offering Eras Tour themed popcorn buckets and cups. Mini Eras Tour Posters will be given out starting on opening night, but they are first come, first served.

    As far as rules about etiquette, many Swifties have taken it upon themselves to contact their local theaters to confirm singing, dancing and dressing up is allowed. AMC has put out a guide saying that singing and dancing is permitted, as long as it’s not on the chairs. Other AMC guidelines say there is no filming of the concert film.


    Replying to @TalPal Is this a concert or not? How loud CAN you be at the Eras tour movie? Let’s ask 3 local theaters what it would take to get thrown out. #swifttok #tstheerastour #erastourmovie #theerastourconcertfilm #taylorswift #greenscreen

    Taylor Nation, Swift’s official fan club account, took to Twitter to encourage fans to dress up in their favorite Eras Tour looks.

    Dress code is #TSTheErasTour. #TSTheErasTourFilm

    The friendship bracelet trading made popular at the concerts will likely continue at the cinema, and it looks like some theaters are joining in on the fun. Alamo Theaters provided a FAQ just for the film and is hinting that they might have some friendship bracelets. There’s speculation that other theater chains such as AMC will also be gifting friendship bracelets.

    Now that you know the rules, here are some tips for watching the movie with a little extra Swiftie shimmer.

    Where to Watch the “Eras Tour” in Southern California

    Orange County:

    Regal Irvine Spectrum

    According to reviews, this location recently underwent a renovation. The Irvine location has an expanded menu for Regal Theaters which includes Cheetos flavored popcorn, bacon cheese fries and pizza. There’s also a luxury wing that has “Regal King-Size Recliners.”

    Los Angeles:

    AMC Century City 15

    This was the spot to be for Barbenheimer, the internet dubbed title for the double feature during “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” opening weekend. Part of the hype for this theater was that it brought out Barbie decor with outfits from the film on display and a pink makeover for the staircase. It will be interesting to see if something similar happens for the “Eras Tour” film, if not current tour outfits, maybe some from her catalog of costumes.

    The theater is located within the Century City Mall, which also includes Cafe Landwer. Their menu features Eras Tour themed meals and drinks such as “Taylor Tots” and a “Holy Grounds” Iced Coffee.

    Paramount Drive-In

    Attending a drive-in turns watching a movie into an experience instantly. Guests can either bring a chair to sit in or stay in the car. For those who don’t want to rely on car audio, other listening options include bringing a portable speaker or downloading a radio app. One of the best ways to see a drive-in is by making the most of your vehicle, preferably a truck, and filling it with pillows. For those with smaller cars who want to get the full Pinterest experience, U-Haul rents trucks starting at $20.

    The Paramount Drive-In offers a snack bar on site if you want classic movie snacks like popcorn and candy but guests can also bring their own food in.

Visitors can also make their way over to the Farmers Market, which houses an assortment of local vendors in a picturesque outdoor dining area.

    Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk Hollywood

    The Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk Hollywood has arguably some of the best recliner seats in Southern California. This is a small but important detail when selecting a movie theater: The seats recline just a tad further than the others, which provides a satisfying viewing experience.

    In addition to the seats, Citywalk has a few other benefits to offer such as Universal Studios Hollywood being right next door, convenient for those who have an annual pass and want to go on some rides beforehand. Parking is in the same area as the theme park and $5 after showing your ticket.

    AMC DINE-IN Topanga 12

    The Eras Tour has a run time of 2 hours and 40 minutes. If you don’t want to miss a second of it but want a dinner break, Topanga Mall is the way to go. The Theater offers concession deliveries straight to your seat so guests can decide what time they want it to arrive.

    Locals will already know this, but this is the theater where Nicole Kidman filmed her iconic AMC preshow ad. There is bound to be a moment of empowerment before the film as a room full of Swifties recite in unison “Heartbreak feels good in a place like this.”

    Starlight Terra Vista 6 Movies

    This is a small but mighty theater. Tickets are typically cheaper here than most chains, but since the Eras Tour film counts as a special event, tickets are going to start at $19.89 wherever you go. The biggest plus is that there are still plenty of tickets available at this theater so if you’re trying to organize a big group this might be your best bet.

    Regal Riverside Plaza

    How many times is too many times to watch the Eras Tour film during opening weekend? For those who made a “Mean Girls” reference and answered “the limit does not exist,” Regal at Riverside Plaza has its guests covered as they have 26 showings of the film within a 12-hour period on both Saturday and Sunday.

    Regal has taken it upon themselves to break down Taylor Swift’s Cinematic History which highlights the singer’s concert movies, documentaries and acting roles which can help get any new fans up to speed or serve as source material for Taylor Swift Trivia while waiting for the film to start.

    The location is only 8 minutes away from Downtown Riverside which has plenty of dining options such as Chat Noir, the Food Lab and Casey’s Cupcakes if you’re looking for a sweet treat.

    Rubidoux Drive-In Theatre

    When the Eras Tour was making its way across the U.S. this summer, many fans decided not to let the fact that they didn’t have tickets prevent them from listening to Swift live and instead tailgated the concert and listen from the parking lot. Why not bring back the best parts about that experience by decorating your car with your favorite lyrics painted on the windows and getting to the venue early to go from car to car trading friendship bracelets.

    Drive-Ins are fun for all ages, especially when it doubles as a pajama party. Attendees can remain on theme as well. Fans can DIY a Junior Jewels shirt from the You Belong With Me music video and pair it with some plaid pajamas. Many have already given it an Eras Tour touch by swapping friend names on the shirt for Swift’s different albums.

    Other comfy options include the Squirrel pajama set from the We Are Never Getting Back Together music video or bring back the phase of tie dying to replicate the Lover album artwork on a pair of sweats.

    The Rubidoux Drive-In Theatre also doubles as a Swap Meet from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tues. through Sun. which gives Swifties the opportunity to find some last minute outfit inspiration and other hidden treasures.


    We brought our whole matress it was our 1st time at the drive in & our kids LOVED it!! #momsoftiktok #drivein #familymovienight #supermariobros #movienifht #driveinmovie #vanburendrivein #momlife #momtok #familythings #foryou #fypシ

    Van Buren Drive-In Theatre and Swap Meet

    Good news for those looking for last minute tickets for the Eras Tour film, there is no advance purchase option at the Van Buren Drive-In. That means tickets are first come, first serve. It makes for a great last minute option that is just as fun. Chairs are allowed as long as they don’t block anyone’s view.

    You can get your typical movie theater snacks as well as burritos and tacos from the concession area.

    The box office opens one hour before show time on Fridays and Saturdays and 30 minutes before Sundays-Thursdays. The film is playing only on weekends until Nov. 5.
