AVALON, Calif. – The Catalina Island Museum invites you to search for the perfect wave during First Fridays at the Museum on Friday, August 4th from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
This month's event features live music and a screening of the ultimate surfing movie Endless Summer. The evening also offers the opportunity to experience Chihuly at the Catalina Island Museum at night while the artwork is dramatically illuminated.
The film follows two surfers from Southern California around the world as they search for the perfect wave. Living the ultimate dream from West Africa to Australia, Tahiti and beyond following the summer season up and down the world, essentially creating an endless summer. Along the way, they ride some fantastic waves, capture amazing footage and meet a variety of characters.
A review by NPR called it "part surfing film, part travelogue, occasionally even anthropological study and wildlife film, ultimately it visually taps into the wanderlust that sends us to far-flung beaches in search of an escape from life that we can't find at home."
Neptune Cocktail is trio of accomplished musicians who love to play traditional and modern surf music, featuring songs first performed by Southern California's trail blazing groups of the early 1960s such as Dick Dale, & the DelTones, Eddie and the Showmen, The Bel-AIrs, The Challengers, and the The Ventures. The music perfectly compliments the vibe of the film.
The museum will re-open for this event at 6:00 pm. Attendees are encouraged to bring a snack to enjoy in the open-air plazas of the museum's second floor or during the film. Wine, beer, soda and water will be available for purchase.
Live music by Neptune Cocktail: 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm.
Screening of Endless Summer: Dusk (around 8:15 pm)
Members $20, Non-Members $25
