Leopard shark at the Monterey Bay Aquarium
The Aquarium doesn't just inspire conservation of the ocean—it has also inspired Hollywood! Several award-winning works, including Star Trek IV and the HBO series "Big Little Lies," were filmed on location at the Aquarium. And did you know our husbandry team helped develop some of the memorable characters from Finding Dory? Join us for a night celebrating the Aquarium's role in Hollywood!

Mar. 24 (Sat.)

Join us for a night of inspiration and red carpets as we celebrate the Aquarium's many appearances on the silver screen! Make your red carpet debut and smile for the cameras at our photo booth.
