Into all the summer movies but wish you could go jump in the ocean after watching one? Well, that’s a mighty specific request, but lucky for you, with Coney Island’s Flicks on the Beach, you can do just that. What’s playing this year? The Avengers for one, and after that, what really matters?
The movies will screen every Monday in July and August starting around dusk, right off of West 10th Street, and will no doubt be the perfect cap to a day spent playing hooky from work. Not that any of you would do that.
The whole thing kicks off with a screening of Little Fugitive, which, as we’ve previously noted, is a trip back to old-school Coney Island before people even used phrases like “old school.” From there, the movies ping pong between family fare with Wreck it Ralph, action with The Hunger Games and The Avengers and charity cases with Men in Black III.
