Netflix and Chill: “Finding Dory”

Live on the big screen, join STATIC as we present a Netflix and Chill Movie Night with Finding Dory.

We’ll supply the movie, popcorn, candy, and drinks. You just bring your PJs, blankets, and some pillows. Wear your ugliest holiday sweater to compete for some cool prizes!

In Finding Dory, Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) is a wide-eyed, blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every 10 seconds or so. The one thing she can remember is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child. With help from her friends Nemo and Marlin, Dory embarks on an epic adventure to find them. Her journey brings her to the Marine Life Institute, a conservatory that houses diverse ocean species. Dory now knows that her family reunion will only happen if she can save mom and dad from captivity.
