      THE GOONIES, GREASE and THE THING at Rooftop Cinema Club's Drive-In

      RCC’s westside location continues to bring the contactless drive-in experience to life in Los Angeles; a hidden gem beneath the stars and nestled next to Bundy Drive. With nearly all screenings sold out through the end of 2020, the January launch is welcome news to Angelenos trying to get their hands on tickets.

      Rooftop Cinema Club’s 2021 season will kick off Saturday, January 2nd. In lieu of missing the many award-worthy movies that would normally be filling theaters this time of year, RCC is rolling out an entire month of Award Winning Films, full of all-time favorite award-winners and nominees. The lineup features everything from award-winning blockbusters and celebrated animated movies like Ratatouille and Coco, to films with memorable movie scores and outstanding technical effects like Jurassic Park and Back To The Future.


      Community Screenings:

      Since launching their first U.S. drive-in back in May, RCC has hosted weekly Community Screenings where all ticket proceeds go to charity. To date, RCC has raised more than $50,000 for charities across the five cities where RCC drive-in cinemas are present (LA, Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Tampa), fundraising for a variety of organizations that alleviate hunger, support victims of domestic violence and fight for racial justice.

      In January, all LA Community Screening ticket sale proceeds will go to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Community Screenings will take place on select Wednesdays at 5:15 p.m., with tickets available for $5 for a vehicle of up to two guests (The Movie Buddy) and $10 for a vehicle of three or more guests (The Movie Squad).

      Scheduling & Logistics:

      In January, The Drive-In at Santa Monica Airport will remain open Monday through Sunday, with three screenings scheduled most days. January 16th screening times are as follows:

      THE GOONIES – start time 5:30 p.m
      GREASE – start time 8:30 p.m.
      THE THING – start time 11:15 p.m.

      Food & Drink:

      RCC offers food and beverage on site, with contactless order and pickup. Classic cinema concessions will be available, as well as menu items from local restaurant The Cloverfield. Please note that due to current LA health guidelines, RCC is unable to serve hot popcorn, but a gourmet pre-popped option is available. See the full concessions menu here.


      RCC’s number one priority is their guests’ and team’s safety and wellbeing, which is why The Drive-In is entirely contactless. All ticket and concession purchases are made online. Vehicles will be parked 10 feet apart. Sanitation solutions will be available on site, and team members will wear masks and routinely change gloves.

      Masks are required if guests exit their vehicle for any reason, including going to the restroom or picking up concessions. Guests must bring their own masks. Guests must practice social distancing at all times when in the proximity of people outside your party. Please contact us for RCC’s full COVID-19 rules & regulations.

      Age Limits:

      All ages are welcome to The Drive-In, however, RCC encourages guests to check the rating of the film prior to purchasing tickets.

      Tickets are on sale at - parking is limited, and screenings are likely to sell out fast.
