$5 Movie Mondays: The Endless Summer (1966 Film; G)

August 28 @ 7:00 pm

On Movie Mondays, the Uptown Knauer Performing Arts Center presents some of their favorite movies. Tickets are $5 and include complimentary popcorn—a perfect family night out! This week’s feature film is the surfer classic, The Endless Summer.

The Endless Summer is legendary in the surf-doc category. Directed, produced, edited and narrated by self-trained filmmaker and surfer Bruce Brown, the 1966 film follows surfers Mike Hynson and Robert August on a surfing trip around the world. Despite the balmy mediterranean climate of their native California, cold ocean currents make local beaches inhospitable during the winter, without later, modern wetsuits. They travel to the coasts of Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Hawaii, Senegal (Dakar), Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa in a quest for new surf spots while introducing locals to the sport along the way.

Brown produced this film for just $50,000 and in a life-changing decision, in order to save $50 on airfare, he decided that rather than focus on one surf destination he would follow surfers around the world chasing the summer season.

The film offered a breezy narrative style and a surf-rock soundtrack from the band “The Sandals.” In later years, Brown’s eldest son, Dana, compiled The Endless Summer Revisited with previously unseen footage, and then directed the film, Step Into Liquid that captured the thrill of tow-in surfing from Pipeline, and the best big waves from around the world.

The iconic 60’s poster of the film by John Van Hamersveld was created from a photograph of Bruce Brown, Robert August and Mike Hynsen by Bob Bagley, taken at Salt Creek Beach in California. One lucky audience member will win a copy of the famous poster that night.
