The World Premiere of Volcom's newest surf movie, Psychic Migrations took over Edwards Big Newport 6 Theater last night in Newport Beach, CA, and included the full cast of surfers from the movie, celebrities, media, and movie-goers alike. As the sun was slowing setting over Newport Beach, VIP guests and surf fans from all over began showing up to see what this premiere had to offer.
The cast and crew of Psychic Migrations got together at the Island Hotel for a World Premiere kickoff celebration just before heading over to the theater.

Directed by veteran surf filmmaker Ryan Thomas and shot on location in the West Indies, East Indies, Australia, Polynesia, and the Americas, the film weaves the physical expression of riding a rousing score of waves with a cerebral odyssey through the scapes and textures travelled to find them.

The world-premiere of Psychic Migrations is set for September 17th, 2015 at the Big Newport Theater in Newport Beach, California with a full schedule of North American and International premieres to follow.
