To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bruce Brown’s documentary The Endless Summer, the Parrish Art Museum is holding an outdoor screening of the film on Friday.

Along with Montauk Surf Museum, Surfing Heritage & Cultural Center and Pilgrim Surf + Supply, the Parish Art Museum is featuring this movie on July 24, the perfect time to celebrate summer with a film about a pro-summer sport.

Released in 1966, this documentary is about a clan of surfer dudes traveling the world in hopes to find “The Perfect Wave.” They make their way from their home in California to Hawaii, Australia, South Africa and other surfing spots on the globe that can satisfy their need for perfection in frothy, ocean form.

The evening will also include live music from the New York City-based band Gent Treadly starting at 7 p.m., the showing of The Endless Summer will begin at approximately 8:30 p.m.

The price for this event is $10 but is free for members of the Parrish Art Museum, children and students. This price also includes museum admission.
