The words “endless” and “summer” probably conjure up an idea that most Phoenicians aren’t too hot on. Given our unique climate conditions, summer is the last season we’d lend to the whimsies of youth eternal. Hop just one state to the west, however, and The Endless Summer starts to sound awfully enticing.
So when Phoenix’s FilmBar, 815 North Second Street, shows the iconic surf documentary The Endless Summer as part of its One Crazy Summer Film Series, it’ll be a perfect opportunity for us desert dwellers to live vicariously through a few sun-drenched surfers from the 1960s who were brave enough to throw off the shackles of everyday life and chase their dreams literally to the ends of the earth. Oh, plus you can drink alcohol during the movie. The Endless Summer will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, August 28. Admission to the 21-and-over screening is $9.
