Long Beach’s newest entertainment epicenter, 2ND & PCH, is keeping the summer festivities rollin’ with their PCH Movies & Moonlight experience, now through Sept. 25. Bring your family or quaran-team and enjoy a spectacular sunset and a flick on the top deck of the 2ND & PCH Whole Foods Market parking garage. Each Friday, 2ND & PCH will kickoff the weekend with a different movie that you can enjoy from the comfort of your vehicle. Here’s five reasons to attend these socially-distanced, in-vehicle movie experiences!


1 | Pick Your Flick Drive-In Movies Long Beach

From kid-friendly films like Trolls World Tour and Disney’s Moana to action-packed flicks like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fast and the Furious, you can choose from a selection of five-star movies that suit your family. And the best part, these experiences are completely free—just reserve your spot or show up early for standby and you’re good to go!


2 | Snacks and Treats

2ND & PCH is home to a variety of top-notch restaurants and dessert spots. Before your movie, arrive early to grab a bite at Noble Bird Rotisserie, Urban Plates, Shake Shack, Ola Mexican Kitchen, Hungry Angelina, Otosan Sushi or Whole Foods Market. And if the kids are craving a summer treat, stop by Tuesday’s Sweet Shoppe for some candy to sweeten their mood!


3 | Take a Stroll Drive-In Movies Long Beach

Aside from the assortment of upscale and fast-casual restaurants, 2ND & PCH offers a variety of places to shop and explore. Before your movie, pop into LINNE’S for a selection of beachy clothes and accessories or snag some sandals from Olukai’s aloha mobile pop-up shop. If you head upstairs, you’ll find several places to chill out while enjoying breathtaking views of the marina. 


4 | Socially Distanced Family Time

Summer is usually action-packed with  vacations and time with friends. In the midst of a pandemic, however, we are encouraged to keep our distance. PCH Movies & Moonlight is the perfect way to safely entertain the kids and spend time as a family. Get out of the house and enjoy the magic of summer!


5 | Marina Views Drive-In Movies Long Beach

As you park your car on the top deck of the Whole Foods Market parking garage, gaze out at the beautiful Alamitos Bay Marina. Good views and dreamy sunsets—that is what SoCal summers are all about!
