For those of you grinding through the workweek with what seems to be less and less of an ability to know the date and/or time each day, it might benefit you to know that today is Friday (7/24) and tomorrow is Saturday (7/25). Also, the month is July, the season is summer and the year is 2015. It’s okay — this is news to us too, but what may come as more of a surprise is that Saturday marks not only the soft launch of the Montauk Surf Museum, but the 50th anniversary of the most iconic surf film of all time, Endless Summer.
To celebrate the film’s 50th anniversary, the Montauk Surf Museum is hosting an open-to-all screening of the timeless surf documentary at the Montauk Light Hose Amphitheater. 100 Percent of all tickets sold will support the highly anticipated public opening of the Museum.
The Museum (aka Oceans Institute of the Montauk Historical Society) will officially open its doors to the public on Saturday August 1st, however, there will be a special soft opening and “sneak peek” of the institution on Saturday evening, directly prior to the film screening.
Bring your lawn blankets, beach chairs and maybe a couple of doobs (just kidding, winky face — it’s not the ’60s anymore). Help us support the birth of the Montauk Surf Museum and be one of the special few to see the exhibit before it’s official opening. You’ll find all the deets below — see you there.
