Let Nitehawk be the wind beneath your wings with our special Mother’s Day 35mm presentation of BEACHES!

Did you ever know that you’re my hero? Two young girls from very different backgrounds meet one summer and then embark on a lifelong friendship. Classic sobber Beaches shows the ups-and-downs of CC Bloom (Bette Midler) and Hillary Whitney Essex (Barbara Hersey); ranging from show business success, romantic entanglements, children, and illness. Truly the loves of each others lives, the film shows how these two women deal with each other’s differences to become family. We dare you not to cry!
