Produced by the City of Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Department in cooperation with the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival, Cinema By The Sea offers free movies on six consecutive Saturday nights from October 23 through November 27.  Showtime for the films is 6:45 p.m.  The feature length motion pictures will be shown on a larger-than-life screen set in the sand on Fort Lauderdale Beach just south of the intersection of A1A and Las Olas Boulevard.

Bring your family, friends and neighbors along with your picnic baskets and blankets for a fun-filled evening of free movies on the beach!

The Cinema By The Sea lineup of movies is as follows: Oct. 23, Date Night; Oct. 30, Little Shop of Horrors; Nov. 6, Oceans 11; Nov. 13, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective; Nov. 20, Best in Show; and Nov. 27, Baby’s Day Out.



Phil and Claire Foster are a couple who have been married for several years. Their days consists of them taking care of their children and going to work and coming home and going to bed. When another couple they know announce that they’re separating because they’re in a rut, Phil feels that he and Claire could be too. So when date night comes, Phil decides to do something different.



Seymour Krelborn is a nerdy orphan working at Mushnik’s, a flower shop in urban Skid Row. He harbors a crush on fellow co-worker Audrey Fulquard, and is berated by Mr. Mushnik daily. One day as Seymour is seeking a new mysterious plant, he finds a very mysterious unidentified plant which he calls Audrey II. Will Audrey II take over the world or will Seymour and Audrey defeat it?



Danny Ocean wants to score the biggest heist in history. He combines a team of eleven members, including Frank Catton, Rusty Ryan and Linus Caldwell. Their target? The Bellagio, the Mirage and the MGM Grand. All casinos owned by Terry Benedict. It’s not going to be easy, as they plan to secretly get in and out with $150 million.



To be a Pet Detective, you have to understand both criminals and animals. Ace Ventura goes even further… He behaves like a criminal animal. When a football team’s mascot (a dolphin) is stolen just before the Super Bowl, Ace Ventura is put on the case. Now, who would want to steal a dolphin, and why?



The owners (and handlers) of five show dogs head for the Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show. A film crew interviews them as they prepare for the trip, arrive at Philly’s Taft Hotel, and compete. Who will be Best in Show?



Baby Bink couldn’t ask for more; he has adoring (if somewhat sickly-sweet) parents, he lives in a huge mansion, and he’s just about to appear in the social pages of the paper. Unfortunately, not everyone in the world is as nice as Baby Bink’s parents, especially the three enterprising kidnappers who pretend to be photographers from the newspaper.

Be sure to bring the kids on November 27 to experience PNC Bank’s Mobile Learning Adventure, a traveling exhibit that provides families an opportunity to learn about the importance of early childhood education while engaging in fun experiences together.

Your family will enjoy fun activities, learning experiences and great giveaways from 3:00 - 8:00 pm at DC Alexander Park, located at 501 Seabreeze Boulevard on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

What is PNC Bank’s Mobile Learning Adventure?

Quality learning in a child’s early years is essential for their long-term success. That’s why PNC Bank developed Grow Up Great, a 10-year, $100 million investment in school readiness to help prepare children from birth to age five for success in school and life. Founded by The PNC Financial Services Group, Grow Up Great is considered to be one of the most comprehensive corporate-based school readiness programs in the nation. The program provides leadership, advocacy, resources and volunteers to assist parents, caregivers and communities in their efforts to increase the potential for young children to succeed.

PNC’s Grow Up Great offers a myriad of resources that are deployed into the communities PNC Bank serves. One of these is called The Mobile Learning Adventure or “MLA”, which is a traveling exhibit that provides families an opportunity to learn about the importance of early childhood education while engaging in fun experiences together.

Aside from a wide variety of fun activities designed for children and families, PNC’s Mobile Learning Adventure includes the “When I Grow Up” photo station, where children can dress up as what they want to be when they grow up. Parents can also receive activity books and learning kits that demonstrate how to take everyday moments and turn them into learning opportunities. There’s no limit to the fun!

You’ll be able to enjoy everything PNC’s Mobile Learning Adventure has to offer on Saturday, November 27th! Join the fun at the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Cinema by the Sea, presented by PNC Bank. The PNC Mobile Learning Adventure will be onsite the last Saturday in November only with activities, experiences, and lots of goodies for kids and families to enjoy! Be sure to stop by DC Alexander Park, located just a few blocks from the movie site, from 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
