A Whale of A Tale for An Evening

June 1 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Have you heard the tale of the greatest fish story ever told? The one about the fisherman from the Cape who was swallowed by a whale?

Join Plimoth Cinema as we present A Whale of A Tale for An Evening on June 1, 2024 to watch the newly released documentary that has been sweeping up awards around New England, In the Whale, directed David Abel, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who covers fisheries and environmental issues for The Boston Globe.

The evening will begin with a wine and cheese gathering in Plimoth Patuxet’s Gainsborough Hall. Guests will enjoy sipping on a selection of wines and delectable bites of artisanal cheeses, jams, seasonal nuts, and cured meats. Following the hour-long gathering, they will transition to the Linn Theater for a special screening of In The Whale. The film documents the account of a man who has long been tempting fate in the shark-filled waters off Cape Cod, Michael Packard.

Packard is the region’s last-remaining commercial lobster diver. From close encounters with great whites to nearly drowning, he has had his share of harrowing experiences. Then the unimaginable happened on a routine dive during a clear June morning, and the experience was of biblical proportions.

Following the film, guests will enjoy a Q&A with Director David Abel to hear his take on this fascinating story and the man who lived to tell the tale.

Proceeds from the evening will support Plimoth Patuxet Museums and our educational mission.
