Posted July 22nd, 2014
To help celebrate the 50th anniversary, Kiggins Theatre will screen The Endless Summer this Thursday, July 23. “The Endless Summer” is the ultimate surfing adventure, crossing the globe in search of the perfect wave. From the uncharted waters of West Africa, to the shark-filled seas of Australia, to the tropical paradise of Tahiti and beyond, these California surfers accomplish in a few months what most people never do in a lifetime…they live their dream.
Director Bruce Brown creates a film so powerful it has become a timeless masterpiece that continues to capture the imagination of every new generation. When it first played in theaters in 1964, audiences lined up to see it again and again, spellbound by its thrilling excitement and awesome photography.
