About The Event

For eons, a one-of-a-kind population of killer whales has hunted chinook salmon along the Pacific Coast of the United States. For the last 40 years, salmon numbers have plummeted, and orcas are starving. This film explores how the removal of four obsolete dams that choke off access to thousands of miles of rivers in the state of Washington will save money, salmon and orcas.

Seating is limited. Unclaimed reservations will be released 10 minutes prior to the start of the film. Unreserved tickets will be handed out at the Front Desk beginning at 5pm on the day of the screening. For more information, please email
