Santa Monica Pier, Los Angeles, California, USA

The Santa Monica Pier is located at the foot of Colorado Boulevard in Santa Monica, California and is the city's most famous landmark.

The pier contains Pacific Park, a family amusement park with a big ferris wheel overlooking the Pacific Ocean and parts of West Los Angeles, a carousel from the 1920s, an aquarium, several shops, vendors, entertainers, an arcade, a pub, a few restaurants, and a café. At the end of the pier, fishermen get together to enjoy their hobby. During the summer months, the free Thursday Twilight Dance Series is held, and open air free film screenings are offered to the public from early August to late September.

Because of the nearby film industry, the pier and the nearby Santa Monica boardwalk are regularly used for location shoots for television and movies. This list of movies at IMDb is representative, but incomplete. The pier is also featured during the fourth and fifth season opening titles to Three's Company. Perhaps its most famous appearance on screen is in Titanic.
