Catch Rehoboth Film Society's Seaside Cinema
|The gentle ocean waves will serve as the soundtrack to the Rehoboth Beach Film Societys annual summer "drive-in" movie series at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand. This year, the Society will feature two "underwater" classics on the big-screen-by-the-sea to help promote the upcoming Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival slated for November 10-14. Both films are free to the public and will begin at dusk. Society members will also be on hand to pass out promotional material and answer questions about the upcoming film festival.
The Second Annual Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival is a five-day event which will feature the best in independent cinema from around the globe. Close to 100 feature and short films will be shown at all six screens at the Rehoboth Mall Cinema as well as other local venues. The event will begin Wednesday, Nov. 10, with an opening night gala at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center and continue through the weekend with lectures, discussion groups, workshops and "non-stop" film screenings for young and old alike. A closing night party will be held at the Rehoboth Mall food court to close the weekends festivities.
