Love movies? Love the beach? Love free fun?
Then mark June 19 on the calendar as "The Lost Boys" opens the summer 2019 season of the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Free Movie Nights.
On Wednesdays at 9:00 pm from June 19 through August 14, the Beach Boardwalk begins the summer season of Free Movie Nights.
The iconic teenage vampire film, "The Lost Boys" stars the classic duo of "the Coreys"-Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. Dianne Wiest, Kiefer Sutherland, Jamie Gertz and Jason Patric also feature. 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 a gang of motorcycle-riding vampires, the younger connects with two BMX bike-riding comic store nerds who may possess just enough know-how to maybe save the eldest brother from fully "vamping out". Although there are a few strong scenes of blood and violence, most of it is done with good humor.
Additional movies in the line-up include Sandlot, The Outsiders, The Wedding Singer and Goonies.
The Summer 2019 Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Free Movie Nights Season runs on Wednesday evenings at 9 pm, starting June 19, 2018 and ending August 14, 2019. 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 additional free entertainment at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk June 17-August 16, 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 14 through August 30, 2019.
