Turner and Hooch

Saturday, June 24, 2017

JOIN US For Turner and Hooch Saturday June 24 at sunset!
Thank you Carmel Police Officers Association for sponsoring this wonderful local film! Tom Hanks plays Turner, a meticulously groomed, excruciatingly well-organized detective working in a small California coastal town(Locals will recognize the scenery, the film being shot here on the central coast!). When local “character” Amos Reed (John McIntire) is murdered by drug smugglers, the only witness is Reed’s slobbery, smelly mutt, Hooch. You’re way ahead of us, folks: Turner, who despises dogs in general and Hooch in particular, is compelled to put the cantankerous dog up as his house guest. Click on the movie picture for a link to Brown Paper Tickets up until around2 pm. Tickets will also be available at the gate until sold out. Rated PG, Runs 97 min
Please arrive in time to park offsite and walk in if you are physically able…parking is limited and we’d like to make sure that our elderly and disabled guests can also join us for this fun family event. Front parking lot, although not marked, is reserved for disabled placard showing vehicles and on duty officers…loading and unloading near top of driveway is available.
