Come back to a world of neon-lit motels with names like the Satellite, Astronaut, Bel Air and Bonanza…..whatever was happening in pop culture that year. A world of Baby Parades and Marble Tournaments, and a boardwalk with more rides than Disneyland. There were clubs where Chubby Checker first twisted and Bill Haley and the Comets rocked around the clock. Dick Clark held dances at the Starlight Ballroom and Bobby Rydell immortalized “Wildwood Days” in song Just be sure to “watch the tram car, please”.
But a wrecking ball threatens the memories of generations of beachgoers who come year after year. Will it destroy the magic of a place where it’s always “the summer of ‘63”?
Featuring interviews with Bruce Willis, Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell, Dick Clark and Tom Verica.
