5 Summer Stories @ Lido Theater 9/18


Ghetto Juice’s Skip Snead explains, “We’ve been thinking about doing another movie premier since last April when we screen the cult surf classic North Shore to a sell out crowd at Lido Theater. We knew to pull it off again, we’d have to screen another classic film. Five Summer Stories is the most influential of all surf films from the 1970s, and was a clear choice for our next premier. While getting everything in order, it was announced that Buttons was battling cancer, and people were trying to help raise money for him and his family.  Buttons runs a surf school on the North Shore, and has no insurance. His wife to be Hiriata Hart has been handling the day to day operations. Knowing Buttons is actually featured briefly in Five Summer Stories, it was a no brainer on our part to make this screening of Five Summer Stories a Benefit for Buttons. When we posted the news on our facebook, the post went viral, and we’ve been overwhelmed by people wanting to be part, or help out with donations.

The event will be classic. We’ll have an awesome raffle, and a silent auction, Buttons’ Afro Contest, and lots of other cool stuff. We’re totally stoked and honored to help Buttons with some much needed finances during the most difficult fight of his life. The fact we get to combine the movie with his fundraiser is just icing on the cake. I can’t wait to see Five Summer Stories on the big screen, and I can’t wait to see the smile on Buttons’ face when we present him with his check.”
