Wow! The Rolling Roadshow's very first mayoral proclamation! July 25 is now officially Lost Boys day in Santa Cruz. You can click on the link to the left to see the official document, or the copy is printed below.
Whereas in 1986, local Santa Cruzans lined up for a casting call and were given a chance to be in a "real" Hollywood movie; and
Whereas major filming took place in Santa Cruz at Joe Ferrara's Comic Bookshop, Atlantis Fantasyworld; the beach boardwalk, the Pogonip Clubhouse; and other various locations in the city; and
Today, actors Brooke McCarter, Billy Wirth, Jamison Newlander, and Chance Michael Corbitt join us in celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Santa Cruz' own pop culture classic, The Lost Boys:
Now, therefore, I Emily Reilly, Mayor of the city of Santal Cruz, do hereby proclaim July 25, 2007 as "Lost Boys Day" in the city of Santa Cruz and encourage all citizens to join me in thanking producer Richard Donner, director Joel Schumacher, and the cast and crew of The Lost Boys for not only making a memorable film but giving us the catch phrase, "Sleep all day. Party all night. It's fun to be a vampire."
Emily Reilly, Mayor
Any mayor that ends an official proclamation with "Sleep all day, party all night, it's fun to be a vampire," is a top-shelf city official in my book. Thanks Santa Cruz for hanging out with us and sorry for drinking Dewar's in the Lost Boys cave...
