Come get wet this weekend at the Packard Campus Theater!


Cast of the film "Pirates of the Caribbean," including Johnny Depp in character in center
“Pirates of the Caribbean” (2003)

“Pirates of the Caribbean:  Curse of the Black Pearl” (Disney, 2003)

Not the first, but by far most successful attempt, to turn a Disneyland attraction into a movie.  Johnny Deep’s portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow makes this movie, as well as the many sequels, a treat to watch.  Water is this month’s theme and this film spends plenty of time on the bounty main.  (Color, 143 minutes)

“The Life of Pi” (2012)

Saturday, June 17, 2023 @ 2pm

“The Life of Pi” (20th Century-Fox, 2012)

An old man, Pi, tells a young author about his adventures at sea.  While traveling on a ship a storm hits sinking the vessel and putting Pi along with a menagerie of animals in a lifeboat.  Ang Lee directed and Suraj Sharma stars.  (Color, 127 minutes)

“Waterworld” (1995)

Saturday, June 17, 2023 @ 7:30pm

“Waterworld” (Universal, 1995)

“Mad Max” meet “Captain Blood” with a bit of “2001: A Spacey Odyssey” thrown in!  The film tells of a future none of us want to see, a sentiment that was shared about the film itself when it was first released.  A colossal flop then, now seen as a cult classic.  Kevin Costner stars.  (Color, 135minutes)
