NORFOLK, Va. – Nauticus is hosting their popular “Fantail Film Festival” on the fantail of the Battleship Wisconsin throughout the summer.

“What better way to spend a Saturday evening during the summer than watching a classic movie on the fantail of the Battleship Wisconsin just like sailors did during World War II!” a Nauticus spokesperson said.

There are three movies left in the series, including:

  • Finding Nemo – July 23 at 8:30 p.m.
