Pirates in the Garden

KALAHEO — Swashbuckling pirates and mysterious mermaids take to the screen during National Tropical Botanical Garden’s encore of Movie Night in McBryde Garden on Sunday, Sept. 6.

The public is invited to a showing of the blockbuster adventure “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and to tour the filming locations in Allerton Garden that were featured in the movie.

In the fourth installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, attendees will recognize several locations and some of the garden’s most famous plants, including Moreton Bay fig trees, used in the filming of scenes such as the mermaid’s capture and more. Meet a “real-life” mermaid before the show and see areas of the garden not featured on standard tours.

Guests will be shuttled into the gardens from the South Shore Visitors Center on Lawai Road in Poipu, across from Spouting Horn, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The film will begin at sundown, approximately 7 p.m., with shuttles back to the Visitors Center at 9:30 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or compact beach/camping chairs. Food, drinks, and movie snacks will be available for purchase.

The Garden is asking for a suggested donation of $10 for entry, which will help fund research, conservation, and public education programs at NTBG.
