Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that they will be bringing the surf-and-sand adventure Back To The Beach from director Lyndall Hobbs to Blu-Ray in a newly remastered version on August 9, 2022 for its 35th Anniversary. Teen idols Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello returned to the big screen with the hip, hilarious 80s update, which was originally released on August 7, 1987. The film will be released newly remastered and restored from a 4K transfer as a part of the Paramount Presents line.
The Paramount Presents Blu-ray of BACK TO THE BEACH includes a brand-new Filmmaker Focus with director Lyndall Hobbs featuring never-before-seen home movies from the set, as well as access to a digital copy of the film. The Blu-ray is presented in collectible packaging featuring a foldout image of the film’s theatrical poster and an interior spread with key movie moments.
Synopsis: Newly remastered from a new 4K scan of the original film elements, BACK TO THE BEACH is a fan-favorite cult classic that lovingly parodies the quintessential 60s “beach party” films. Frankie and Annette, having grown up and put aside their beach-partying lifestyle, visit their daughter in Southern California and discover there’s still some wild times left in them. Along for the fun in the California sun are a host of familiar faces: Connie Stevens, Dick Dale, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Don Adams, Bob Denver, Jerry Mathers, Barbara Billingsley, Edd “Kookie” Byrnes, and Pee-Wee Herman.
