Looking for an immersive way to enjoy a classic family movie?

Duke Recreation and Physical Education is offering a free "dive-in" movie showing of "Finding Nemo" at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 18 in the Brodie Recreation Center pool.

From the warm waters of the Brodie pool, families can watch characters Dory and Marlin swim through adventures to find the missing Nemo. The event is free to all. In addition to showing the movie, a variety of water noodles, inner tubes and beach balls will be available to play with.

During the movie, the pool will be staffed with lifeguards.

"Any time we can host a family-oriented event in our pool, it's a lot of fun," said Bonnie Adams, aquatics coordinator for Recreation and Physical Education. "It's a great experience for kids to see adults having fun in the pool, too, so we can foster a love of swimming from an early age."
