Help us bring FREE screenings of classics like "Rebel Without A Cause," "Pee-wee's Big Adventure," and "Woodstock" to the beach!
Friends! Long Beach Cinematheque has been given a wonderful opportunity to program a lineup of Monday night summer drive-in/audience favorites right on the beach, and FREE for the Long Beach community! We're calling this new series MONDO MONDAYS ON THE BEACH!
The good folks at Alfredo's Beach Club are generously donating the use of their massive inflatable screen, outdoor digital projector, and surround sound system - all we need to cover is the studio licensing for the titles themselves! And since these screenings will be free, we need the help of lovers of cinema and community to cover these expenses!!
This Summer, we will be screening:
REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE - July 11
PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE - July 18
THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY - July 25
WOODSTOCK - August 1
GREASE 2 - August 15 (We won't stop you from singing and dancing along!)
THE SHINING - August 22 (Closing night event with giveaways and more!)
Alfredo's has already offered to possibly keep the fun going for a few more fun nights past August - your support will help that happen!
We are so excited to bring this series to Long Beach, but again, we really need your support to pull it off. Please give what you can - every bit helps! - and see you on the beach!
For only $50, we'll include your announcement, business logo, advertisement, etc. in our pre-show slide show! And we'll keep it up at every one of our Monday shows at no further cost! Simply donate $50 or more to our Kickstarter page, and e-mail your ad in as high-res as possible to mailto:email@example.com. All sizes welcome, but horizontal ads (900x500) work best for the screen! We'll also send out a Thank You blast with a link to your site or Facebook page!
All Mondo Monday on the Beach screenings are FREE! Just come on down to the beach, lay out your blanket or set up your chair, get comfy, and enjoy the show! We are able to bring such wonderful free events to the community with the support of business sponsors, partners like Alfredo's Beach Club, and individuals like you!
Absolutely not! We still need your support!! We have been able to begin this great series of free community film screenings on good faith, but still need to cover our expenses with the studios (yes, even though the screenings are free, there are still studio expenses). It is definitely not too late to contribute, and we hope you do!
It is part of our mission to bring a variety of cinematic experiences to those who may not comfortably afford them, and we rely on the charitable support of those who can to make this possible. Also, our ticketed events - such as Mondo Midnights, CineMOLAA, and other special events - allow us to raise revenue to program free events such as the beach screenings and the Long Beach Zombie Walk. We would love to offer as much programming as we can for free or for a low entry fee, and your support truly helps make that possible.
They are, but viewer discretion is advised at our screenings of "Woodstock" and "The Shining."
This Kickstarter campaign ends and funds on Wednesday, August 17 (assuming we reach our goal!). Your "Harshest Possible Way" print can be collected at our closing night screening of "The Shining" the following Monday, August 22! Not coming to "The Shining"? No problem - we'll mail you your print, safely insured and packaged, in a poster tube.
