Get out your lawn chairs! Returning for a second year, Santa Monica Pier's Front Porch Cinema will offer free films for the community every Friday for four weeks beginning September 27. This year marks the event's first collaboration with nonprofit arts organization Film Independent.

Kicking off the series is the LA premiere of SXSW hit and festival favorite rockabilly doc "Los Wild Ones." Filled with great music and large personalities from Rob Kennedy's LA-based indie label Wild Records, the film follows Kennedy and the young Latino musicians he's signed as they face an uncertain future for the label. The Rhythm Shakers will perform live. Trailer below.

On October 4, the Pier will screen George Roy Hill's Oscar-winning comedy caper "The Sting" (1973), starring Robert Redford and Paul Newman, for the film's 40th anniversary. The evening features a live ragtime pianist and card tables.

October 11's film will be a family-friendly screening of the classic animated Peanuts gang treasure "Snoopy Come Home!" Closing the series will Oscar-nominated documentary "Chasing Ice" (2012), directed by Jeff Orlowski about National Geographic photographer James Balog as he takes us on a time-lapse tour through the challenging glaciers of the Arctic.
