Attention, sci-fi fans. Add another beach cleanup to the list, post-Fourth of July.
Eight North American coastal cities in the Pacific Rim, including Pounders Beach at Laie Beach Park, are participating a beach cleanup from 10 a.m. to noon tomorrow (Thursday, July 11) in support of Guillermo del Toro's new sci-fi action adventure "Pacific Rim."
Meet at 10 a.m. at Pounders Beach in Laie. Look for the Sustainable Coastlines tent and blue flags.
Warner Bros., which is hosting the family-friendly beach cleanup events, along with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, will provide supplies and award the first 100 participants two tickets to see the film in RealD 3D on opening weekend along with "Pacific Rim" T-shirts made from recycled materials courtesy of RealD.
Besides Laie, beach cleanups are planned at Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, Huntington State Beach in Orange County, Mission Beach in San Diego, East Beach in Santa Barbara, Ocean Beach in San Francisco, Alki Beach in Seattle and Kitsilano Beach in Vancouver.
Several beach cleanups are scheduled this month, targeting the litter left behind on our shorelines after Fourth of July celebrations.
"Pacific Rim" opens nationwide in RealD 3D and IMAX on Friday, July 12.
