Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Free Movie Nights
Starts June 20 with "The Lost Boys"
by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
Looking for free fun this summer? Check out the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Free Movie Nights Starting Wednesday, June 20, 2018 with the classic teenage vampire film, "Lost Boys".
"The Lost Boys," stars the classic duo of "the Coreys"-Corey Feldman and Corey Haim - along with Dianne Wiest, Kiefer Sutherland, Jamie Gertz and Jason Patric. Much of the flick was filmed locally, including key scenes on the iconic Beach Boardwalk, Carousel and beach with Santa Cruz standing in for "Santa Carla-the vampire capital of the world"
With the theme of "Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire," the story focuses on a divorcee and two teenage sons moving in with her father in Santa Carla to re-group and re-establish themselves.
While the older brother falls in with the bad crowd of vampires, the younger connects with the comic store nerds who may possess just enough know-how to maybe save the eldest from fully "vamping out". Although there are a few strong scenes of blood and violence, most of it is done with good humor.
The Summer 2018 Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Free Movie Nights Season runs on Wednesday evenings at 9 pm, starting June 20, 2018 and ending August 15, 2018 (with a break for July 4, 2018). Bring a low-profile beach chair or blanket and a good attitude. Please remember no smoking of any kind, and no alcohol on the beach. Food, beverages and alcohol are available for purchaser at the Boardwalk. Kindly toss away all garbage in the many containers available on the way out.
Visitors may also enjoy free entertainment at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk June 18-August 17, from noon until 6 pm. Also the Beach Boardwalk offers Free Friday Night Bands on the Beach, with two shows, one at 6:30 pm and another at 8:30 pm, starting Friday, June 15 through August 31.
