CLAYTON, New York (July 4, 2013) – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, New York, announced today its new Movies Under the Stars event dates and showings for the 2013 season.

Movies Under the Stars will consist of two Friday night showings of well-known movies that will be projected onto a two and a half story inflatable movie screen this summer on the campus of the Antique Boat Museum.

Join the Museum on Friday, July 19 [CANCELLED for potential bad weather 7/19/13] for the playing of Night at the Museum featuring Ben Stiller and Robin Williams, as well as on Friday, August 23 for the playing of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl featuring Johnny Depp. Gates will open at 8:30 p.m. and the movies will begin at dusk.

Tickets for both movie nights are on sale now for purchase at the ABM admissions desk. Cost per showing is $5 for advance sale and $10 the night of the show. Ticket sales benefit the Museum.

Night at the Museum [CANCELLED], released in December 2006, is a movie about Larry Daley, an overnight security guard (Stiller), at the American Museum of Natural History. While on duty, the Museum transforms into complete chaos thanks to an old Egyptian stone that came to the Museum in 1950. This magical stone brings the exhibits to life each night until dawn.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is sure to be a hit at the ABM, falling just a week after Alexandria Bay hosts its annual Pirate Days.

Debuting in July 2003, Disney and Johnny Depp took the thrill of pirates to an unexpected level. Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) quickly became an icon, which helped to spawn multiple movies, theme park rides, Halloween costumes and more. Throughout the action-packed film, Sparrow battles the cursed crew of the Black Pearl and attempts to rescue the kidnapped Elizabeth Swann (played by Keira Knightley).

In addition to the movie nights, the ABM and Izzy’s Outdoor Cinemas have partnered to raffle off a movie night in your own backyard. Raffle tickets will be available at various ABM events throughout the remainder of the summer.
