Beach season may have come to a close,
but the fourth annual Coney Island Film Festival will lure you
back to the people’s playground.
Running Oct. 1-3, the celebration will offer 111 films selected to reflect Coney Island’s independent spirit and irreverent nature, said festival director Rob Leddy. Among the films that will be screened are David Cairns’ "The Return of Peg Leg Pete" (pictured).
The film festival begins with an opening-night gala on Oct. 1 at 7 pm at Sideshows by the Seashore (3006 W. 12th St.) with two film screenings followed by a party at the Coney Island Museum (1208 Surf Ave.).
Tickets for the gala are $20. Tickets for each screening are $6. Festival passes available. For a complete schedule, visit the Web site at www.coneyi
