CLAYTON, New York (July 18, 2013) – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, New York, regrets to announce that the July 19 Movie Under the Stars event has been cancelled due to a potential threat for severe storms and high winds forcast for Friday in the region.

“We apologize to those who were very much looking forward to joining us under the stars on Friday evening, but we believe safety comes first and the unknown weather situation is a risk we do not want to take with visitors on campus,” explained Michael Folsom, Director of Marketing and Communications. “In addition, possible high wind conditions would not have permitted us to raise the 2.5 story high inflatable movie screen.”

Those seeking a refund of the $5 donation ticket should visit the ABM admission desk between July 18 and July 24 with your purchased tickets. Any tickets distributed through promotion are no longer valid.

No rescheduled date has been determined.

Located on the St. Lawrence River in the 1000 Islands, the Antique Boat Museum features a collection of over 300 antique and classic boats, among thousands of recreational boating artifacts. This August, the Museum will host the 49th annual Antique Boat Show and Auction, the longest running show in North America. For more information please visit the Museum’s website at
