Summer Film Series: “Atlantis: The Lost Empire”

The second movie of our 2022 Summer Film Series will be “Atlantis: The Lost Empire.” This animated film is filled with action and adventure. It was released in 2001 by Walt Disney Pictures.

This story follows an inexperienced young adventurer who becomes the key to unraveling an ancient mystery when he joins up with a group of daredevil explorers to find the legendary lost empire of Atlantis. A naive-but-determined museum cartographer, Milo Thatch, dreams of completing the quest begun by his late grandfather, a famous explorer. When a mysterious journal surfaces, an eccentric billionaire funds an expedition and the action shifts to high gear. “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” is rated PG, and is an hour and 35 minutes long.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs as we enjoy this film under the stars. Games and free refreshments (while supplies last) will begin at 7 p.m., and the movie will start just after sundown. You may bring your coolers, but please no pets or glass containers.

This movie is being shown in conjunction with two of the current rotating exhibits at the Bush Library and Museum, Texas Sea Grant: 50 Years of Science and Stewardship and Oceans of Plastic. From maintaining healthy coastal ecosystems to aiding sustainable fisheries and promoting resilient communities, Texas Sea Grant has helped Texans protect and enhance the unique, culturally significant, and economically important resources of Texas’ coastal and marine environments. Visitors will learn about historic and current Texas Sea Grant programs and successes while realizing their own impact as stewards of the Texas coast. Additionally, plastic pollution in our oceans is one of the most pressing consumer and environmental issues that we face today. Oceans of Plastic is a strangely beautiful collection of art made from plastics acquired from beaches along the Texas Gulf Coast.

These exhibits will be on display until July 5, 2022, don’t miss out!
