Downtown Santa Monica has announced its schedule of outdoor movies for its third annual “Cinema on the Street” series of summertime movies.
Residents are encouraged to unwind in a unique outdoor setting under the stars on the last three Friday evenings in July on the Third Street Promenade.
MI’s Westside Comedy Theater will have attendees laughing in their seats with a pre-show comedy performance at the screenings of “Back to the Future” and “Three Amigos!”
AMC Theatres will be raffling off a Family four-pack of movie tickets at the screening of “Despicable Me” and there will also be a special appearance from a “Despicable Me Minion.”
Free blankets will be given out to the first 100 guests for each show.

Attendance is free. Parking is available in city parking structures throughout Downtown Santa Monica (www.smgov.net/parking).
