It’s summer time and what better way to celebrate than with the final installment of Beach Party! We close out this exploration of American beach cinema with the first eponymous AIP Beach Party film. Take a load off, listen to rocking surf of The Tsunami Brothers at 6:30, have a tropical drink, and witness the film that started a phenomenon. See Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon surfing it up and hanging out. Beach Party is also notable for featuring the wild styling of Dick Dale and the Del-Tones. So kick back, relax, and let the party begin. Curated by Maggie Hardy.
