Front Porch Cinema, a free community film experience, is being presented on the Santa Monica Pier every Friday through Oct. 19.
During the outdoor screenings, the pier is transformed into a front porch environment with vintage stylings, concessions and a cinema lounge.
Guests can unwind on old-fashioned lawn chairs, specially sourced for the series to complete the experience, watching films on a 40-foot Airscreen with a digital high-definition projection system.
Co-produced by L.A.’s premier outdoor screeners, Eat/See/Hear, the series launched Sept. 28 with the classic “The Wizard of Oz,” in celebration of the movie’s 75th anniversary.
The screenings will continue Friday, Oct. 5 with this year’s hit “The Hunger Games,” followed by “Exit Through the Gift Shop,” Oct. 12 and “500 Days of Summer” Oct. 19.
The events are scheduled to start at 6 p.m., with a DJ spinning a specially programmed sunset playlist.
Filmgoers are encouraged to take the Big Blue Bus to the film series. Parking will be available in the lot north of the pier at 1550 Pacific Coast Highway, and free bike valet service will be provided.
