Beach Flix Are Back!


Grab your beach chair and get ready for movie night on the beach. The Rockaway Civic Association (RCA) announced the return of its popular Beach Flix free movies on the beach series for the summer of 2022. This year’s movies are made possible by a grant from the Citizens Committee for NYC as part of their All In Neighborhood Grant initiative.

“We are excited to announce that we were awarded a 2022 All In Neighborhood Grant from Citizens NYC!” President of the RCA, Harold Paez, said. “The grant funding will help our group to bring a selection of free movies to the public right on the beautiful beaches of Rockaway. Watching a film on a beach chair in the sand on a summer evening, is one of the unique experiences that bring many people from all over the city to Rockaway at this time of year.”

This year’s line up kicks off on Thursday, July 14 at Beach 106th Street and the boardwalk with cult comedy classic Napoleon Dynamite at 8:30pm. This feature is sponsored by Caracas. Don’t forget to pick up an arepa before the show to say thanks.

Additional films will include: Tuesday, July 19: Luca - Beach 129th on the sand (8:30pm), sponsored by PICO; Thursday, July 28: The Lost Boys- Beach 108th on the sand (8:30pm), sponsored by The Rockaway Hotel and Wednesday, August 3 Teen Beach Movie- Beach 122nd on the sand (8:30pm), sponsored by Rockway Properties.

Perennial crowd favorite Jaws is also scheduled for a still undetermined date in August.
