2013 LATE SPRING MOVIE GUIDE
America’s Greatest Family Resort prepares for an Epic start to summer, inviting imaginative characters along for the most thrilling ride. Our shore-loving cast shouts Now You See Me, now you don’t to studio movie executives on their way to our beach haven, thrilled to be on vacation from harsh lights and Hollywood drama. Fortunately, they arrive long Before Midnight, following a Strek Trek Into Darkness that reveals sparkling sunlight. Summer has yet to turn on The Heat, as a soft sea breeze welcomes them to town. They quickly learn Rodeo Drive’s got nothing on Asbury Avenue and spend much of their spring break shopping and sightseeing. Trading their movie passes for beach tags, the cast glows straight into the summer of 2013, surrounded by soothing natural sunbeams, as well as their own supernatural starlight.
