Documentary Film: The Last Ride, Memories of the Myrtle Beach Pavilion
The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the 30-minute film, The Last Ride, Memories of the Myrtle Beach Pavilion, part of the Carolina Stories Series by SCETV. For nearly 60 years, the Pavilion was synonymous with music, rides, and fun in the sun. Like a whirling dervish, it was a heady time at the popular beachfront hangout. Man-on-the-street conversations give viewers a glimpse back in time where teens cruised the strip and beach music ruled, providing momentum for South Carolina’s celebrated dance, “The Shag.”
The film screening is free at 1 p.m. July 28th.
