Ranked #4 of 11 Fun & Games in Galveston
Attraction details
Reviewed July 19, 2012

This is soooooo worth watching. Wonderfully done film about the 1900 "category 5" hurricane that nearly wiped Galveston off the map. Such a compelling story... really worth viewing in order to understand the city and its history better.

Clean and cool place to see a film and get out of the heat for a while. We watched the hurricane of 1900 film and it was very informative. The theatre also has a small souvenier shop.

We watched the movie, "The Great Storm," which is about the 1900 hurricane that devastated Galveston, at the Pier 21 Theater. It was very interesting and not very expensive to do. It gave us a great foundation of knowledge about this part of Galveston's history to take into account as we visited the area. Here are some tips for those of you considering this attraction: We weren't aware, but there are $1-off coupons available in the restaurant below the theater. Also, there is parking for the theater nearby (which we didn't use because we weren't aware), and you can get your parking ticket validated for 2 hours of free parking if you go to the theater. And the cashier at the theater told us that the restaurant below will validate parking tickets for 3 hours of free parking. (So you could get a total of 5 hours.)

The movie about the 1900 hurricane is interesting and informative. This natural disaster has set the tone for the island for over 100 years.
