Films at the USS Silversides: Operation Petticoat
July 14 @ 6:00 pm - July 20 @ 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.
July 8 – 14, it’s “Operation Petticoat” (1959)
Lieutenant Commander Matt Sherman (Cary Grant) is in charge of the submarine “Sea Tiger,” which was badly damaged at a Philippine shipyard by a Japanese air raid. Seeking to make sail before an oncoming invasion, Sherman enlists the help of newly transferred Lieutenant Nick Holden (Tony Curtis) to use his talents as a con artist to procure the needed supplies. Once they’re underway, Sherman evacuates a group of beautiful nurses, but can’t find anyone who will take them off his hands.
