Front Porch Cinema

Unwind on the front porch of California after a long week. We’ve got FILMS, FOOD, DRINKS & FUN from Oct 18-21. Oh, and the movies are really good too, and free! There are even old-timey lawn chairs for rent that melt away the stress of the week while you relax and enjoy the ocean breeze.

Danny, Sandy, Rizzo, Frenchie, Putzie and of course, Kenickie... the musical comedy that has captured our hearts for more than 40 years and transcended the pop culture zeitgeist is coming back to Front Porch. We've got summer lovin' (in the Fall), singing and dancing to celebrate Halloween on the Santa Monica Pier.

"As If" Grease didn't provide enough High School drama, join us on Friday night for Clueless. Roll in with your homies, your Baldwins (hunks) and your Bettys (pretty gals) and don your most stylish outfits as we watch Cher learn that when it comes to love, she's.... well, Clueless. It'll be totally buggin'.

They are one of the most prolific American families, and no Halloween would be complete without them. They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're altogether ooky... The Addams Family. Watch the adventures of the eccentric family unfold with your quirkiest relative for the ultimate family movie night.

Disney Pixar's extraordinary adventure comes to the Pier for the final night of Front Porch. We follow Miguel on his journey to the Land of the Dead where he seeks to uncover the mysteries behind his ancestor's stories and traditions. It's a not-to-be-missed movie night the whole family will love!

Fall is in the air and nothing can compare to dining al fresco under the Santa Monica stars on the Front Porch of Southern California. Whether its date night, family night or a festive fete for friends, we invite you to show us your best "Picnic on the Porch" set-up, for a chance to win prizes, treats and more. Bring your tabletop accoutrements, Halloween-inspired decor and favorite fare to make it a movie night to remember. The Pier is all about fun, but there are a few rules you should know about: - The first 19 participants to arrive each night will have an astroturf spot to enjoy- As romantic as they are, please do not bring flames or open fires. It’s a wood deck and we really don’t want to burn it down!- There is an open container law in Santa Monica, so please drink responsibly (note: we are not checking bags).- We’re a family-friendly, all-inclusive destination, so please keep your decor elements appropriate. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got!
