Proudly partnered with LA County Parks, Boat Cinema is LA’s first and ONLY beach party and movie experience from your own personal mini boat.

Expect a magical night in one of the most stunning settings in Los Angeles with food, drinks, music and preshow fun on the Boat Cinema Beach.

Thirty minutes from DTLA, Castaic Lake is a bustling lake environment with boaters, water skiing, long stretches of gorgeous beaches, and camping.

Catch movies like Jaws, Clueless, Top Gun, The Notebook, and more! 

Boat Cinema will drop you into a world that you will only get here.

Reserve a mini electric boat or bring your chairs and enjoy our BEACH SEATING!

Pack a picnic ( For a corkage Fee) or we can have one on your boat prepared for you. You can pre-order hot artisan pizza delivery out on the lake right to the side of your boat or to your blanket and chairs on the beach. And definitely, hit up the only beach bar in LA that is actually on the sand. Whatever you choose, just come ready for a summer night at the beach with incredible films, food, and music.
