Free Movies + Concerts on the Beach this Summer

A 30th anniversary screening of The Lost Boys kicks off the summer fun at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
While hot new rides and frozen treats fill summer days at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Evening movies and concerts enliven Main Beach with free performances by bands such as Los Lobos and Quiet Riot, and outdoor screenings of classic movies including Grease and Ghostbusters. Plus, this year marks the 30th anniversary of The Lost Boys, the classic teen vamp flick filmed in Santa Cruz, and we’re celebrating with a special screening, free movie location map, and an Instagram contest (thru June 14th).

The Boardwalk did some prepping for the new season, too, with a whopping $14 million worth of new rides, updated attractions, and cool enhancements. Here’s a peek of what new fun the Boardwalk has in store for 2017.
