Summer Film Series: “Shark Tale”

The first movie of our 2022 Summer Film Series will be “Shark Tale.” This animated comedy was released in 2004 by DreamWorks Pictures.

“Shark Tale” provides a fun twist on the classic rags-to-riches tale and follows a lowly fish named Oscar who fantasizes about being rich and famous. One day, the son of a shark mob boss called Don Lino is found dead, and Oscar just happens to be at the scene. Being a bottom feeder, Oscar uses the situation to his advantage and takes credit for killing the mobster, making him an instant hero. As the plot unfolds and his dreams of fame finally come true, Oscar soon comes to realize that his lies may have serious consequences. “Shark Tale” is rated PG, and is an hour and 30 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!
