On Wednesday evenings at Piadina on the Courtyard at Hotel San Luis Obispo, we take you back to the classic screen era featuring movie favorites under the stars. Projected onto the courtyard wall — enjoy a community gathering for a spectacular twilight dining experience. A portion of the cocktail sales for the evening will be donated to the SLO Film Fest.

Due to social-distancing, limited seating is available. We strongly encourage you to make reservations in advance.



Are films screened with audio?
No, films are silent with background music and subtitles if applicable.

Is this a full movie screening?
No, the film will be played in the background while you dine at the restaurant. It provides a unique dining experience but unfortunately not all of the tables will have a perfect view of the screen.

How do I make reservations?
Reservations are made through the Piadina reservation system or by calling the Hotel San Luis Obispo at 805-234-9969. Due to social distancing guidelines there is limited availability each Wednesday evening.

What time do the films start?
Films will be starting at various times depending on sunset and when the projection is visible.

How long will you be doing this for?
Currently we have plans to extend this through the month of October and November.

How do we support the festival at the event?
A portion of cocktail sales (includes beer and wine) will be donated from the hotel and we also have a donation box at the front desk. We really appreciate any support you’re willing to give as we try to recover from the COVID-19 impaired financial results of the March 2020 film festival.

What safety measures are being taken?
The Hotel San Luis Obispo is following state and county guidelines on providing a safe experience for you. You can find more about their protocols here.
