  • About

    This annual summer program takes advantage of the museum's outdoor amphitheater and Avalon's beautiful summer nights. This year's films were chosen because they were either filmed on Catalina Island or mention the island in the film.

    Beyond the Poseidon Adventure is an action-adventure disaster film starring Michael Caine and Sally Field. The S.S. Poseidon is capsized by a tidal wave, the ship drifts bottom-up in the sea and its passengers are desperate to be rescued, however two rivaling salvage parties are looking for more valuable items on board. The water scenes were filmed off of Catalina Island.
