√ Part of ‘T-Mobile Outdoor Film Series’ at Artpark

Artpark & Company has announced the Artpark Community Appreciation Night showing of “Finding Nemo” on Sunday, Aug. 15 (8 p.m.) Tickets are free. This film is part of the “T-Mobile Outdoor Film Series at Artpark.” Movies are projected on a 30-foot screen on the Artpark Amphitheater stage.

In the 2003 G-rated animated film “Finding Nemo,” Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks), a clown fish, is overly cautious with his son, Nemo (Alexander Gould), who has a foreshortened fin. When Nemo swims too close to the surface to prove himself, he is caught by a diver, and horrified Marlin must set out to find him. A blue reef fish named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) – who has a really short memory – joins Marlin and complicates the encounters with sharks, jellyfish, and a host of ocean dangers. Meanwhile, Nemo plots his escape from a dentist's fish tank.”

Seating is general admission and audiences can bring chairs or blankets. Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase, and the Artpark bar will be open.
