Celebrating 10 years of providing free moving screenings on the Second Avenue beach in front of Langosta Lounge, the Asbury Park Film Initiative [APFI] has just announced its 2019 lineup.

This year the curated classic film screenings will move from Thursday to Wednesday nights at sunset, organizers said. The family-friendly movies are screened on Shore Flicks’ 16-foot inflatable screen [shown in feature photo].
