Santa Monica Drive-In

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We love being at the beach, but sometimes get bored with the perfect bodies, gorgeous sunsets, and lilting blue waters. Fortunately there is the Santa Monica Drive-In: free screenings of classic and relatively recent films. The screenings occur at the Pier every Tuesday through October 5 and are strictly family-friendly. The tickets for admission are free but you can also buy tickets for a raffle to benefit the Cancer Relief Fund.

Don't forget your beach blanket or chair. Films start at 7PM.

Upcoming movies:
Pink Panther
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Star Wars
Super Size Me
