Wildwood Boardwalk Documentary Sequel Released
BOARDWALK II: Back to Wildwood, the sequel to the well-received 2003 documentary, BOARDWALK: Greetings From Wildwoood By-the-Sea, which has been aired frequently on PBS, has been released for the 2013 season.
The new documentary, a Boca Cape Films production, was filmed during Wildwood’s centennial year in 2012 – prior to Sandy – and again follows “Boardwalk rat”and narrator Bob Ingram on his daily travels along Wildwood’s famous Boardwalk.
Ingram, in the new film, calls the two-mile stretch “a hall of memory and the human heart” and “ever-changing, yet eternally the same,” and BOARDWALK II is a kinetic mixture of the old, traditional Boardwalk and the many new additions to this authentic American icon.
The movie explores Wildwood’s unique Boardwalk architecture and ambience, and previews some exciting new projects that further enhance Wildwood’s reputation as the last of the world’s great Boardwalks.
But people are the heart of the Boardwalk, and Ingram’s travels along the Boards are spiced with conversations that range from Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano to legendary deejay Jerry Blavat to three young fellow Boardwalk rats.
BOARDWALK II is available at the History Museum on Pacific Avenue, the Hereford Lighthouse, on the Boardwalk at Morey’s Piers, Eleanor’s, Cathy’s Critters, Ed’s Funcades, and Franconi’s, as well as Tom Cat on Rio Grande Ave. or by calling Bob Ingram at 609-465-9968. Price is $20.
