About the Event
In memory of beloved Winter the Dolphin, Tampa Theatre is presenting a free community screening of Dolphin Tale on November 26.
Dolphin Tale tells Winter’s story through the perspective of Sawyer, a boy who helps rescue her as she’s tangled in the line of a crab trap and badly injured. Though most of Winter’s tail has to be amputated, she is given an innovative prosthetic, thanks to designer Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Morgan Freeman) and Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick Jr.), head of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Her new tail allows her to survive and thrive, and Sawyer’s commitment to help her changes his life forever. Filmed mostly in Pinellas County, Dolphin Tale is an uplifting, homespun story of how, by making room in your life to help someone else, you can help yourself too.
This FREE memorial screening will include a display in Tampa Theatre’s lobby with information about our work and a chance to see her very special tail prosthesis before the show, plus a post-film Q&A with some of the animal care experts who worked with Winter every day and participated in filming Dolphin Tale.
Please join us and the entire Tampa Bay community to celebrate Winter’s life and message of hope and perseverance!
