Make Family Movie Night Fun in Long Beach

Long Beach Movie Nights is back for 2019! There’s nothing like watching your favorite films right on the beach. As the sun starts to set, enjoy a free family-friendly movie screening on the shores of Long Beach every Saturday beginning June 29.

Local civic associations and the City of Long Beach come together every summer to present a night of kid-friendly programming. After a long day at the beach, come out and experience movies under the stars on the big screen. Past films include Grease, Jaws, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Organizers are already teasing this summer’s film lineup. Expect beach classics, 1980s hits, 1970s cult classics, and an animated hit for the kids.

Make the most of your family movie night by packing the essentials. Long Beach temperatures drop at night, so plan accordingly. Pack a sweatshirt and blanket to snuggle up with so you aren’t running back to the hotel in the middle of the flick to grab extra layers. Sitting in the sand for a few hours may get uncomfortable, so bringing a beach chair always helps. Lastly, don’t forget the snacks! Stock your cooler with beverages and check out our favorite outdoor eats for a quick place to grab a meal on the go to enjoy while you watch.
