  • Time: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

The 2017 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with The Last Ride, Memories of the Myrtle Beach Pavilion, part of the Carolina Stories Series produced by SCETV. For nearly 60 years, the Pavilion was synonymous with music, rides, and fun in the sun. Like a whirling dervish, it was a heady time at the popular beachfront hangout. During the hour long program, man-on-the-street conversations give viewers a glimpse back in time where teens cruised the strip and beach music ruled, providing momentum for South Carolina's celebrated dance, "The Shag".
