Cult Classic Horror Film Returns to Westside Park & Beach

From Pine City Parks & Rec:

"Pine City Parks & Recreation will host a movie night at the beach Beach on Thursday, August 19th at the Westside Park & Beach. Beginning at 8:30 PM, guests will be welcomed to a “floating” movie night featuring a 1959 film titled Attack of the Giant Leeches. The horror/sci-fi film is just 62 minutes in length and is sure to leave viewers speechless.

“We tried this event for the first time last year and it was successful, I am hoping for a great

turnout this year,” said Stacy O'Rourke, the Parks & Recreation Director for the City of Pine City. “I can’t think of a better way to watch a movie about leeches than from the water at the beach!”

So, what is the film about? A quick Google search shared the highlights of the film as a backwoods game warden and a local doctor discover that giant leeches are responsible for disappearances and deaths in a local swamp, but the local police don't believe them.

The special event will be set up to allow for guests to watch the movie from the beach or from the water, depending on their preference. All guests will need to bring their own chairs, floating tubes. “We will allow guests to float in the deep areas of the beach as long as they are wearing a USCG-rated life jacket. Younger kids must also have life jackets if they are in an area that is over their shoulders. “ O’Rourke continues, “Lifeguard staff will be on-site to ensure safety, and concession sales.”

For those brave enough to attend and watch the blood-sucking monsters on the big screen, the Beach will open for seating at 8:00 PM. You can learn more about Westside Park & Beach online on the City's website."
