The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Whiteville and the Columbus County Arts Council have partnered to bring you “Movies on Madison: Summer Cinema Series.” This month’s film, “Finding Dory,” will be shown Friday, July 21 at dusk. From Disney-Pixar’s Animation Studios, “Finding Dory,” welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Nemo and Marlin (voice of Al Brooks.) When Dory suddenly remembers that she has family out there who may be looking for her, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marine Life Institute, a rehabilitation center and aquarium. In an effort to find her mom and dad, Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents, Hank, a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey, a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz and Destiny, a nearsighted whale shark. Navigating the complex inner-workings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendship and family.
