One of the benefits of being a member at Monterey Bay Aquarium is that you are invited to their special events - this one is from the "Finding Dory" members-only screening at Pixar Studio. (we are Aquarium members and business partners of seafood watch.)

So, what's the connection between Monterey Bay Aquarium and Pixar and Finding Dory? In Finding Dory, many animators from Pixar visited the Aquarium to study the building and exhibits which were incorporated into the movie. Many scenes in the movie at Marine Life Institute were based on Monterey Bay Aquarium.
