They’re Back! Fantail Friday Film Festival Returns
Starting July 15, 2011 Nauticus will welcome back a second season of its popular Fantail Friday Film Festival, a truly unique movie watching experience aboard the fantail (stern) of the Battleship Wisconsin! The first film of the series will be The Poseidon Adventure, one of the most gripping disaster movies ever made. The 1972 film’s all-star cast, which includes Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine and Shelley Winters, follows ten survivors of an ocean liner capsized by a tidal wave. Bring the kids and a camp chair and enjoy a summer evening watching movies just like the Wisconsin crew did during WWII. Joe’s Crab Shack’s crab will be on hand for fun and discount coupons.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and films begin promptly at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $3 and may be purchased at the Nauticus Admissions desk prior to each film. No reservations are required. Concessions will be available for purchase. Camp/beach chairs and blankets are strongly recommended.
The series will continue throughout the summer and into the fall with the following dates:
August 5 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (in partnership with the Dolphin Scholarship Foundation)
September 2 National Treasure
October 7 The Goonies
In conjunction with Nauticus’ newest exhibit experience, most movies kick off an Atlantis! A Labyrinth Adventure Weekend, featuring special activities and entertainment. For more information, email email@example.com or call (757) 664-1000.
