“Stand By Me... is the summer’s great gift, a compassionate, perfectly performed look at the real heart of youth. It’s one of those treasures absolutely not to be missed.” - Los Angeles Times

Four young teenage boys sit together on the hood of a 50's style car.

A landmark of 1980s cinema and the quintessential coming-of-age film, Stand By Me is an enduring look at friendship, mortality, and the adventures of youth. Set on a warm summer’s day in 1950s rural Oregon, four boys head out on a hike in search of the body of a local missing boy, determined to become town heroes. Directed by Rob Reiner (When Harry Met Sally, This is Spinal Tap), adapted from the Stephen King novella The Body, and with outstanding performances from the four young leads, Wil Wheaton, Jerry O’Connell, Corey Feldman and River Phoenix, Stand By Me is an abiding classic that still has the power to captivate audiences across generations. Be taken back to your own summer memories as you watch Stand By Me on the big screen in our open-air cinema, with a stand-out soundtrack crammed with early rock & roll numbers and timeless hits.
