In 1991-92 two NYU students, Carole Tuerksch and Jimmy Garland spent two seasons doing a film project on the Polar Bear Club and Coney Island in the dead of winter. The film, Side Shows by the Sea Shore: Polar Bears and Others, eventually aired numerous times on The Discovery Channel and PBS. Aside from capturing the spirit of the somewhat desolate culture of Coney Island in the off season prior to its recent re-discovery and development, it is notable for its views of some long lost treasures, like the Thunderbolt roller coaster. The film is distributed by www.visualantes.com.
