Newport Beach Film Fest Debuts Drive In-Cinema


The Newport Beach Film Festival proudly announces a spotlight screening of the world premiere of A Life of Endless Summers: The Bruce Brown Story, directed by Dana Brown. Presented in partnership with Fashion Island and THE LOT, the film will be shown in an outdoor drive-in format on the upper level of the parking structure located between Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom at Fashion Island on Thursday, August 13,  at 8 p.m. 

Tickets for the screening are on sale for $75 per car. Each ticket includes a $20 gift card for THE LOT, a signature Fashion Island tote bag and a limited-edition movie poster designed by artist Troy Lee and autographed by Dana Brown and Lee. This screening serves as a kick-off event for THE LOT Drive-In Summer Movie Series at Fashion Island, continuing weekly through August 30.

The Festival, which was originally scheduled for late April was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A Life of Endless Summers: The Bruce Brown Story was formally scheduled to be the Opening Night Film. Dates for the 21st annual Newport Beach Film Festival will be released at a later time.

A Life of Endless Summers: The Bruce Brown Story is the highly anticipated film from Dana Brown in partnership with Irvine-based SCS and Red Bull Media House. Brown lends his storytelling prowess to a truly memorable and personal piece of- work in the form of a penned love letter to his father. A road trip turns into a rare, intimate look at the amazing life of his legendary father, Bruce Brown (The Endless Summer and On Any Sunday). Dana started the project with his father as a long-overdue "road trip" they took together traveling up the west coast and Hawaii.
