Back by popular demand, the iconic Santa Monica Pier presents Front Porch Cinema, a free community movie experience under the stars every Friday night starting on Oct. 3.
For four consecutive weeks, The Pier will be transformed into a cozy front porch environment, providing the perfect setting for a night of movies, food, drinks with a variety of films for all audiences.
Guests can unwind on old-timey lawn chairs and watch oceanfront films on a giant inflatable screen with the highest quality HD-projection and line-array sound provided by LA’s premier outdoor movie producers, EatISeeIHear.
Viewers can also bring their own chairs as a limited number will be available for rent. The Cinema Lounge also welcomes guests before and during the show for movie-themed cocktails curated by Cocktail Academy, and handpicked food vendors from Berlin Currywurst to timeless kettle corn to complement the films.
“If you liked free summer concerts, you’ll love free fall movies!” said Santa Monica Pier Administrator Jay Farrand. “Grab your friends and family and catch up on some of the best and biggest films from the past year, and a classic favorite. You can sing-a-long to “Frozen,” lean back and look at the stars during “Gravity,” eat fancy pastries during “Grand Budapest Hotel” or watch Ferris Bueller from under the Ferris Wheel.”
Front Porch Cinema is co-produced by award-winning producers, Eat|See|Hear, and will launch the Friday night season with the most-talked-about animated movie of the year, “Frozen.” Attendees are encouraged to grab a vintage lawn chair and their favorite movie snack and “Let It Go.”
