Salon Series Held In Art Deco Section Of Historic Ship
Enjoy a free day aboard the Queen Mary and a free movie as kind of a bonus.
The legendary luxury cruise liner, permanently berthed in Long Beach, is offering complimentary admission on Thursday, April 6, to view Walt Disney Pictures’ 2016 feature, The Jungle Book, which is also free.
Advance reservations are required (keep reading for the link).
Part of the ship’s ongoing Salon Series community services program, the Jungle Book screening is in the ship’s beautiful art deco Britannia Salon.
The film is a live-action remake of the original animated classic produced in 1967 – the same year the Queen Mary first arrived in Long Beach. Walt Disney himself frequently sailed on the Queen Mary when in trans-Atlantic service.
Admission to the ship is complimentary after 3 p.m., and the film begins at 6 p.m. So there’s plenty of time to walk around the decks, take a self-guided tour (there’s signs and photos telling of the ship’s rich history) and a couple of drinks in the art deco Observation Bar. There’s even a wine tasting room where you can get a glass (or two) as you walk around the ship.
Seating for the move is on a first come – first serve basis.
Additionally, ship historical tours and separate 4D theater tickets pricing will be reduced to $5. Theater-style snacks and cocktails will be available for purchase at pop-up concession stands in the Britannia Salon.
Event Parking is reduced to $10 after 3PM.
Whether or not you go to the movie, this is a great opportunity to go to the Queen Mary, a legendary ship with a colorful history and a top – although often forgotten – Los Angeles tourist attraction. Normal admission is $27.
