Films at the USS Silversides: U-571
July 28, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - August 3, 2018 @ 2:00 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 22 – 28, it’s “U-571” (2000).
When a German U-571 submarine with a sophisticated encryption machine onboard is sunk during a World War II battle at sea, the Allies send an American Navy force led by Lieutenant Andrew Tyler (Matthew McConaughey) to retrieve it for study. Boarding the German ship, the Americans’ cover as a rescue force is quickly blown. Forced to take the crew hostage, the Americans lay their explosives and prepare to destroy the German vessel before the Nazis can send naval backup.
