Filming & Rental Events

Griffith Observatory inspires everyone to observe, ponder, and understand the sky. It accomplishes this mission primarily through daily public operation of the Observatory building. This includes programs in the Samuel Oschin Planetarium and Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon, public telescopes, exhibits, and other building activities. The Observatory is open six days a week (Tuesday-Sunday), 10-12 hours a day.

All facilities at Griffith Observatory are primarily for use in accomplishing our public mission. On selected Mondays, the Observatory will consider appropriate and relevant requests for use of its facilities for filming or rental events consistent with the policies of the Observatory and Department of Recreation and Parks. We do not schedule commercial filming or rental events on days we are open to the public.
