Description

Enjoy movies under the stars and get your daily dose of nostalgia! Movies will be projected onto a 52-foot screen, and audio will be broadcast through the FM transmitter radio in your car. You are welcome to bring your own food and drink to this venue, however local food trucks will be featured every Thursday through Sunday, as well as a selection of classic cinema concessions nightly. Each parking spot now comes with a designated tailgating spot, welcoming guests to enjoy the film from within or outside of their vehicle. Restrooms are available on-site and will be regularly sanitized.

Late screening (THURS-SAT) – start time between 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.

Doors open an hour before the prime screenings and 30 minutes prior to the late screenings. 

Age Limits

All ages are welcome to all screenings but RCC encourages guests to check the rating of the film they are purchasing tickets for.

Schedule 

Please find the complete list of movie titles and the full Rooftop Cinema Club El Segundo, The Drive-In at Santa Monica Airport and Rooftop Cinema Club DTLA schedule here.

Tickets

Tickets range from $32–48 for a vehicle, depending on occupancy and screening day. Children 8 and under do not count as vehicle occupants. Parking spots are first-come-first-serve and will be assigned by ushers upon arrival. RCC also offers $10 Community Screenings on select Wednesday nights, where half of each ticket's proceeds get donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Please check individual screenings for exact pricing.

Food & Drink

In addition to classic cinema concessions with contactless order and pickup, RCC now offers a rotation of local food trucks at screenings every Thursday through Sunday, curated by Flavor Trucks! While you’re still welcome to BYO food ‘n’ drink, it is suggested that you go hungry and support local food vendors! Please note, there will be one or two food trucks present per evening.

Safety

As COVID-19 guidelines change, RCC has adapted operations with the safety of guests and team members at the forefront of their plans. All ticket purchases are made online, and concessions at all venues are available with contactless order and pickup. Team members will continue to wear masks and routinely change gloves, and sanitization solutions will be available on site. Please review RCC’s safety measures and guidelines for The Drive-In at rftp.cc/santamonicasafety.
