July 19 @ 6:00 pm - July 25 @ 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 15 – 21, it’s “The Hunt for Red October” (1990).
Based on the popular Tom Clancy novel, this suspenseful movie tracks Soviet submarine captain Marko Ramius (Sean Connery) as he abandons his orders and heads for the east coast of the United States. Equipped with innovative stealth technology, Ramius’ submarine, “Red October,” is virtually invisible. However, when an American sub briefly detects the Russians’ presence, CIA agent Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin) sets out to determine Ramius’ motives, fearing he may launch an attack on the U.S.
