Films at the USS Silversides: Destination Tokyo
June 23 @ 6:00 pm - June 29 @ 6:00 pm
Need a fun way to beat the heat this summer! Stop in at the USS Silversides Submarine Museum this summer. For the price of an admission ticket to the museum, not only can you explore exhibits in the two-story museum, the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter McLane and, of course, the USS Silversides Submarine, but at 2:00pm everyday you can also enjoy a full-length feature film in their newly renovated, air conditioned theater.
June 17 – 23, it’s “Destination Tokyo” (1943).
Captain Cassidy (Cary Grant) is in charge of a submarine on a mission so secret even he doesn’t know what it is until his ship departs San Francisco and he opens his sealed orders. His task — to pick up a meteorologist (John Ridgely) and travel to the coast of Japan to gather weather information for the Doolittle Raid, the first air strike on Tokyo. Along the way they fight to elude detection from Japanese ships and eventually face off against an enemy aircraft carrier.
