HBO Max Celebrates Summer Movie Premieres on the Santa Monica Pier

Published on July 13, 2021

HBO Max Celebrates the Premiere of Space Jam: A New Legacy and other summer blockbusters at the Santa Monica Pier

Look to the West Coast this July as HBO Max takes over the Santa Monica Pier to celebrate the premiere of much anticipated summer blockbusters including Space Jam: A New Legacy and The Suicide Squad, in theaters and on HBO Max. Head to Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier for opportunities to get free rides at the amusement park, taste a brand new flavor of Dippin’ Dots ice cream, and win cool merchandise at the midway inspired by Space Jam: A New Legacy.

Each evening, Pacific Park will light the Pacific Wheel — dubbed the HBO Max Ferris Reel — with a special light program featuring characters and icons from the films. You can see the cascading, green code of The Matrix, fun themes from the DC cinematic universe, and beloved Looney Tunes characters from Space Jam: A New Legacy, including a 90ft tall Bugs Bunny who will be gazing out over the Pier from the world-famous Pacific Wheel. If you can’t make it out the Pier, you can still see the lights by visiting Pacific Park’s live streaming webcams. The nightly light program begins at dusk, around 8PM PST.

HBO Max is also partnering with local restaurants on the Santa Monica Pier including The Albright, Seaside on the Pier, Rusty’s and Soda Jerks for complimentary rewards for those who ride the HBO Max Ferris Reel each day.

Inside Pacific Park, HBO Max has cool prizes from the films at 6 of the midway games including great merchandise from Looney Tunes at Long Range Basketball – can you shoot hoops better that Bugs? Also check out the custom Dippin’ Dots Flavor sold throughout the amusement park. Finally, check out the Pacific Wheel that is all decked out for the event with custom graphics.
