  1. It pains me to say it, because I really enjoy going to movie night with my family and I know how much work & pride the civic association has for the night, but the lineup is … underwhelming, I guess.
    Rocky Horror again? Couldn’t think of *any* other films?

    I know, I know, they do it out of the kindness of their heart w/ local sponsors & I’m just a ungrateful resident who doesn’t have to go if he doesn’t like the selections. But viola…

  2. Jaws has been on TV since the 70s, and it doesn’t get boring. The beach is FULL with double screens, it doesn’t get any better, nor does it get boring! Here i to swimming bold legged women!

  3. Underwhelming is an understatement. This is so typical of this place. A novel idea such as movies on the beach, in it’s second run, has already become a symbol for sameness and lack of creativity.

  4. I can watch Jaws immediately after I’m done watching Jaws, while watching Jaws at the same time x 10.

    There really are only 2 repeats that I can remember from last year: Jaws and Rocky Horror – both which had extremely large crowds.

  5. Wow pretty sure it takes some time & a lot of work to organize movie night on the beach & all of its sponsors…. People can sit back & enjoy them for FREE… I’m sure a suggestion list with both family friendly movies, & movie night just for adults would be a better way to go rather than complaining about It. I’m sure it’s not an easy task to get these movies…Maybe You few Debbie Downers should stay home & rent Netflix, or pay to see a movie… Womp, Womp!

  6. @Bell, A lot of time and energy invested has nothing to do with a lackluster and pretty tired list of movies. God forbid we have a movie that’s thought provoking or empowering or dare I say foreign. How about instead of Goonies they show a real kid empowering movie like the NZ film Whale Rider, or the Aussie film Rabbit Proof Fence, or something like The Kite Runner by an Afghan director. Why not go out on limb and show a film like Dreams by one of the greatest directors of all time, Akira Kurosawa. There are some 500-800 theatrically released films around the world every year and somehow we have to repeat two.
    It’s kind of pathetic and it’s really a testament to the lack of creativity and aestheticism in Long Beach. It’s like that toilet bowl planter photographed outside the nail salon. It took a lot of work to remove it, re-install it in its present location, buy the soil, decide on and then plant the flowers, maintain them by watering everyday, weeding, etc, etc. But it’s still garbage. As is pretty much any display of toilet fixtures since Marcel Duchamp’s “Fountain” urinal is pointless. Don’t we have a newly ordained Long Beach Arts Council? This place is a joke of epic proportions.

  7. I don’t even live in NY, BUT PEOPLE, can’t you be civil? This is a FUN night for LOTS of people. Put your POSITIVE FACES ON. I’m sure you have other things to do if you don’t like the movie selections. It’s very hard to obtain these movies. I, for one, don’t get out much and haven’t seen a lot of these movies. If I’m in NY this summer I’ll take my grandkids. Thanks Long Beach for your efforts.

  8. Thank you everyone for putting in the work on this. The line up looks great.

    They have a long beach film festival as well. Feel free to get your fix of the artsy there.

    I’m not a huge fan of Rocky Horror, but I hear it’s more about the audience participation than the movie itself so I plan on checking it out.

    Jaws on the beach is always packed.

  9. @Franks – I think the line up looks great too, but I don’t think it’s fair to say “if you want artsy movies go to the LBFF” – though I do appreciate that your response wasn’t “if you don’t like it, move” which is often thrown around if you don’t like the parking, potholes or Waldbaums.

    Isn’t the LBFF for independent films? Not exactly the same as endearing Academy Award winners.

    Instead of having two children’s concerts, they could’ve shown a Forest Gump, Miracle or Gone With the Wind for some diversity, appeal to different residents, and a way to introduce kids to something other than comedies – or something for residents without children.

  10. My goodness. The community is providing people with a free fun night. Be thankful rather than degrading. By the way, these movies are well known preferred movies. Not many people want to see foreign films. They prefer to watch what they know and enjoy. So quit bring such a Debbie downer.

  11. @ strangers on a trolley, your above stamens & opinion is fine if you weren’t so obnoxious about it…Just about every time someone tries to do something fun & good in this town people like you bitch & moan from your couch…. It’s only the second full summer of doing the movies (which by the way the kids love watching them on the beach). And like I said if you have these ideas go forward with them by suggesting them to the people that do the movies on the beach. I’m sure plenty of people put request in for movies.Or better still organize it your self on opposite nights of these movies. I’ll be there when you do 😉

  12. people are being so mean and negative. this is such a nice thing that was put together. stop being greedy. i think its wonderful and i will be attending most of the movies!

  13. The in consideration on this thread is crazy. I wasn’t there last year, in fact this is the first I’m hearing about movies on the beach. It’s a great idea, and a great lineup. Obviously the repeated movies are in high demand if they’re going to be playing them. Personally, I can’t wait for jaws or rocky horror. Most people have seen these movies many many times. It’s about the overall experience, not necessarily what flick is being shown. A lot of people have no idea about those foreign films. We aren’t all siskel, ebert, or roeper…jeez. If u don’t want to see a certain movie, just don’t go. I put which movies I want to see on my calendar, and left the others off. Didn’t take rocket science to figure out. Thanks so much, LB, for providing such great entertainment

  14. Alison, Thank you for writing that. We would like to point out that these “Saturday Nights on the Beach” are not run by any government entity. These events are planned, organized and run by the Local Long Beach Civic Associations. Your friends, neighbors and civic association leaders took time from their personal lives to make these nights possible. We hope that everyone can find time to come down to the beach (or Kennedy Plaza) and enjoy some of these events.

    We would also like to note that we could not have done this without the incredible generosity of our sponsors, so please let them know how much you appreciate what they have done, to see their facebook pages and websites please visit: https://www.facebook.com/notes/459034640936687/
