Airport Drive In

Rooftop Cinema Club is returning to L.A. this month with a pop-up drive-in that will take place right beside the runway at the Santa Monica Airport — and it looks as cool as it sounds. 

Set on a sprawling lot on the edge of the tarmac, the “We Love L.A.” series kicks off later this month with screenings of some of the most iconic movies set in The City of Angels like Grease, Clueless, Pulp Fiction, La La Land and Love & Basketball.

And when the holidays hit, you can watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, The Polar Express, Love Actually and other Christmassy classics from the comfort of your car.

Unlike traditional movie theatres, you can bring your own snacks, so go ahead, stock up all you want on sugar cookies, peppermint truffles and white chocolate candy cane popcorn. 

From November 27 through December, there'll be plenty of holiday decor flickering on the 52-foot outdoor screen, Rooftop Cinema Club told Narcity. Movie-watchers are also encouraged to bring their own holiday spirit by decking the halls (of their cars) with twinkly lights and tinsel. Kits will be available for sale, too.

Rooftop Cinema Club will even award prizes for the best car decorations on surprise nights throughout the holiday season, so you'll definitely want to bring your Christmas 'A' game.

Keep an eye out for Wednesday shows starting at only $5 per car for kid-friendly movies like Happy Feet and Arthur Christmas, otherwise, tickets for most other days start at $30.
