Members-only movie night featuring Monsters, Inc. (G)

Enjoy a night out at the movies, Aquarium-style! Before the show starts at 7:30pm, you’ll have the opportunity to see, touch and explore the animals in our tide pools. You’ll also have time to load up on popcorn, candy and beverages before the lights go down. Come in pajamas for even more fun!

Our next movie night featuring Monsters, Inc. (G) is scheduled for October 18, 2019. Registration opens October 1!
