My kids and I have had so much fun catching movies on the beach through the summer months at the Jersey Shore. Just bring a blanket and some beach or lawn chairs (and bug spray couldn't hurt), and when the sky gets dark, the movie comes on under the stars!

Outdoor movies are coming to the beach in Spring Lake, at Harbor Park in Atlantic Highlands, and so many other outdoor sites including Holmdel, Hazlet, on the waterfront in Keyport, Matawan, Middletown, Red Bank, Fair Haven, Eatontown, Ocean, Tinton Falls, Neptune, Marlboro, Manalapan, and the Asbury Park boardwalk.

Non-perishable food donations will be collected to benefit the area food banks. Then, sit back and enjoy a great free movie on a giant inflatable screen brought to you by Shore Flicks, voted as Best Free Entertainment in the 2011 Asbury Park Press Readers Poll!
