5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Guests joined us for a special screening of the Sundance Award Winning Film “Chasing Coral”
Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. Unfortunately, the effort is anything but simple, and the team doggedly battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won’t have audiences sitting idle for long.
Guest brought their dinner and enjoy a picnic on the Aquarium lawn under the moonlight. This was a FREE educational event for the family.
The movie was shown on a 16-foot inflatable screen providing a fin-tastic evening of cinema!
Doors opened at 5:30 p.m. and guest we welcome to view the exhibits, educational booths and begin their picnic on the lawn. The movie presentation “Chasing Coral” began at 6:30 p.m.
