'Cry Little Sister' Singer Performing Live Wednesday

Gerard McMahon, a.k.a. G. Tom Mac, will rock out the theme song from "The Lost Boys" plus one more before a screening of the film at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

Just like a vampire, some one hit wonders are resurrected, if only for the entertainment of die-hard fans.

To mark the 25th anniversary of the release of the cult classic vampire flick, The Lost Boys, and to christen the start of its Free Movies on the Beach series, the is screening the film Wednesday night.

As an added bonus, the theme park, where many of the horror movie's most iconic scenes were filmed, is bringing musician Gerard McMahon, a.k.a. G. Tom Mac, onstage to perform live before the film starts rolling.

Mac sang the 1987 movie's haunting theme song, "Cry Little Sister." He'll play an acoustic version of that ballad, along with one other, in front of a giant movie screen.

The performance kicks off at 8:30 p.m. with the film screening beginning at 9 p.m. A 15-minute intermission will take place approximately one hour into the film.

Mac'll stick around to sign autographs, too, so break out your Lost Boys memorabilia and any other late 80s kitsch you'd like inked.

Free Movies on the Beach continues every Wednesday through August 15. Next week's film is Grease followed by The Princess Bride July 25. For a complete listing of movies, check out the Boardwalk's website.

Seating is first-come, first-served. Blankets are recommended and lawn chairs must be low-backed.

What's your favorite part about The Lost Boys? Do you remember the song, "Cry Little Sister?"
