Starting this Friday, for one week, Seattle's great Indie theatre The Grand Illusion in conjunction with Code Red, will be running the lost Roman Polanski film A DAY AT THE BEACH. Please support the Grand Illusion by checking out this lost Polanski film!
Here is more info from their web site.
DAY AT THE BEACH
U.S. Theatrical Premiere !Written, produced and edited by Roman Polanski
Bernie is a shiftless, alcoholic wanderer. One day, along with a young polio-stricken girl named Winnie, he comes upon a seaside resort community. As he stumbles about the town becoming progressively drunker, Bernie interacts with the town's cast of strange characters (including Jack MacGowran, Fiona Lewis and Peter Sellers in a brief cameo). Never released theatrically in the U.S. and considered "lost", this ultra rare Roman Polanski produced and penned oddity has been screened only once before at a Chicago film festival in the 80s. Our friends at Code Red DVD unearthed this obscure cinematic gem and we proudly present to you!
