Orca Awareness Month Events
Saturday, June 1, 11 a.m.
This film peels back the glitzy circus act to show the real lives of the whales, compared to their true natural history and social lives. After seeing Blackfish it's clear to any viewer that captivity is torture for orcas. What a thrill it was to be a part of this powerful production.
Blackfish will show in Seattle on Saturday June 1 at 11 am, at AMC Pacific Place theater, and will show in a theater near you in July, especially if you call your local theater to make sure they get it.
Saturday, June 1, 3 - 8 p.m.
