Laemmle continues its partnership with the Santa Monica Pier — this time as part of their Front Porch Cinema series. Free to the public, Front Porch translates to big-screen, outdoor fun during the dog days of summer. Over at the Laemmle booth, we’ll be entering people to win free movie tickets and giving away samples of our signature popcorn. What’s not to like?
So come down to the Pier and join us for the next three Fridays, starting this Friday, Oct. 4 with the 1973 Academy winner for Best Picture, The Sting. Directed by George Roy Hill and starring Redford and Newman at the height of their powers, this classic comedy caper set in the 1930s never fails to delight. The film screens at 7:30pm but come early as the folks at the Pier have invited us all to try our hand at the gaming tables with Casino Night. Doors open at 6pm.
The series continues the follow Friday, October 11 with the inimitable PEANUTS classic, Snoopy Come Home, as part of the the Pier’s official Doggie Drive-In Night (treats and water bowls provided!).
The concluding event features the eco-documentary, Chasing Ice, which chronicles the attempts of photographer James Balog to visually depict the effects of climate change on the Arctic glaciers. A subject very much appropriate to the Pier setting and a must-see for anyone concerned about the environment.
