By Lookout Staff
September 21, 2016 -- From a food documentary to an episode of "Star Wars," the Santa Monica Pier is offering an eclectic lineup of films during its Front Porch Cinema series, pier officials announced Tuesday.
The free movie series will screen a film every Friday night from September 30 to October 28 on a giant inflatable screen with the highest quality HD-projection and line-array sound, Santa Monica Pier Corporation officials said.
"The Pier will transform into a cozy front porch environment, providing the perfect setting for a night of movies, food and activities with a variety of films for all ages," Pier officials said. "Guests can unwind on old-timey lawn chairs and watch oceanfront films."
The series kicks September 30 off with the family-friendly animated feature, "Zootopia." The screening will feature free ice cream for the first 100 people as well as arts and crafts and face painting for the kids, officials said.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens," episode seven of the epic Star Wars series, screens on October 14, followed on October 21 by a screening of the 30th anniversary edition of "Labyrinth," starring David Bowie as a goblin king.
"Labyrinth" will be preceded by a Bowie tribute by DJ Set and a sneak preview of CBS' new show "The Great Indoors" starring John McHale.
The series concludes October 28 with a screening of "Tight Loose," an extreme ski and snowboard documentary presented by Teton Gravity Research.
Movies begin at 7:30 p.m., and attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs, since only a limited number will be available for rent.
The Cinema Lounge, which opens at 6 p.m., offers curated cocktails and beer from Boulevard Brewing Company, as well as seating for guests to enjoy before and during the film (must be 21 and over to enter).
