The International Mermaid Museum invites you to an outdoor screening of the new mermaid movie “Erzulie” on Friday and Saturday, June 24 and 25 at 7 p.m. in the event tent at Westport Winery Garden Resort.
This PG-13 rated adventure thriller tells the story of four friends who get together for a relaxing weekend on a Louisiana lake. In the spirit of scary movies, one of the friends convinces the others to call upon the water goddess Erzulie, known as the protector of women and children. Their request seems unheard when the mermaid fails to appear. It is only the following day that they encounter the “fearsome queen of the swamps” in her true form.
The director, Christine Chen, an Academy qualified film producer, director, and author, said it is not a movie for young children. “I wouldn’t say it’s scary, it’s like ‘Goonies,’ meets ‘Jaws,’ and ‘Splash’.”
Leila Annastasia Scott, who plays the lead role of Erzulie, will join Chen in hosting the evening with time for questions and answers from the audience. They will then present the International Mermaid Museum with a signed copy of the movie poster and Erzulie’s mermaid tail.
The ticket price of $10 includes admission to the museum prior to the screening. Advance ticket purchase is required to attend this event. Tickets are available online at the Westport Winery website.
Wine, beer and cocktails will be available for enjoyment during the event for guests over age 21. Guests who want to make dinner reservations should call Westport Winery at 360-648-2224. The last dinner seating is at 5:30 p.m.
