Ocean Night at the Sea View Theatre: ‘Beneath the Salish Sea’ movie screening

Head out to the Sea View Theatre for an underwater odyssey through the Salish Sea, from the Puget Sound and Hood Canal through the San Juan Islands and beyond at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

The documentary “Beneath the Salish Sea” will be shown on the Sea View Theatre screen as part of the SeaDoc Society and Camp Orkila’s new Ocean Night series. The event is free, family-friendly, and concessions and bar will be open.

The popular documentary was filmed by dive videographer Florian Graner and is packed with stunning underwater images all shot in high definition. It takes you below the surface and into an underwater ecosystem that is teeming with stunning wildlife. In addition to the film screening, Graner will be in attendance for an audience Q&A.

Graner’s latest edition of the movie includes new video filmed with state-of-the-art high-speed and cineflex cameras. It features species like the giant Pacific octopus, found right off the Seattle boardwalk, and the sixgill shark, filmed off Whidbey Island, and species found right here in the San Juan Islands. The documentary includes stories about killer whales, salmon, porpoises and the stormy coast at the entrance to the Salish Sea around Cape Flattery.

Ocean Night takes place on the first Wednesday of every month (note that January’s episode about Steller sea lions will be on Jan. 9 due to the New Year holiday).
