If you're in the mood to see the ocean come to life on a five-story screen, you may want to check out a free showing of The Living Sea this month at the Hearst Castle Theater.
In case you didn't know, it's Coastal Discovery & Stewardship Month, and showings like this are part of the many activities offered.
The Living Sea will be showing every Saturday in February at 7pm.
The film explores our relationship with the ocean, and you'll get an up close look at some of the mysterious creatures that inhabit it, such as golden jellyfish, giant clams, and humpback whales.
All of them are part of the National Marine Sanctuary System, established in 1972 - exactly 100 years after the first National Park was created. The system includes thirteen national marine sanctuaries and one marine national monument.
The Living Sea is narrated by Meryl Streep and features music by Sting. It was nominated for an Academy Award in 1995.
Admission is free, but limited to the theater capacity of 400.
