Enjoyed the movie about the beginning of Galveston. I guess it's named for Bernard Galves? The wait wasn't long, with movies every 30 minutes.

This film of the 1900 Storm is a great way to show those who haven't been to Galveston about the history of it in a short lesson. Very enjoyable!

The movie is a little dated, but the event did happen in 1900 so that was to be expected. Accurate, full of detail and we were surprised by what the kids actually talked about afterward. They listened!

The Great Storm film was extremely informative and gave us an understanding of the town and the history of the seawall, homes, businesses, and downtown. After taking the Chamber of Commerce tour, this film explained the uniqueness of the island town and its resilience.

As billed the Movie about the Great Storm of 1900 is shown here. As reviewed it is a Very Good movie, very informative. There is an option for a second movie about Jean Lafitte. It too was very interesting and worth watching. I would have given them 5 stars if they had some displays while waiting for the movies.
