NEW: TITANS OF THE ICE AGE
11 AM, 2 PM, 5 PM
Titans of the Ice Age transports viewers to the beautiful and otherworldly frozen landscapes of North America, Europe and Asia ten thousand years before modern civilization.
Travel across monumental glaciers and sweeping grasslands, rich in life—a Northern Hemisphere whose vast plains resembled the African Serengeti. Roam the mammoth steppe with baby Lyuba, a 40,000 year old female Woolly Mammoth calf recently exposed by the melting Siberian permafrost, now one of the best preserved mammoth mummies in the world.
Shot largely in and around the picturesque Rocky Mountains, Yellowstone National Park, Alaska and the Northern Great Plains, Titans of the Ice Age will captivate audiences with a vision of a world inhabited by creatures both familiar and exotic—leading us to consider the possible fates of today's living mammals.
FLYING MONSTERS 3D
10 AM, 1 PM, 4 PM
Just as dinosaurs began their domination of Earth, pterosaurs ruled the prehistoric skies. Some with wingspans as long as a modern jet plane, these flying reptiles were as spectacular in appearance as they were amazing in flight.
Join world-renowned naturalist and documentary filmmaker David Attenborough as he recounts the fascinating story of how we humans first discovered that these creatures were real and how they were even able to get off the ground and indeed soar...until their sudden disappearance from Earth.
DINOSAURS ALIVE 3D
12 NOON, 3 PM
Dinosaurs Alive is a global adventure of science and discovery – featuring the earliest dinosaurs of the Triassic Period to the monsters of the Cretaceous ―reincarnated‖ life-sized for the giant screen. Audiences will journey with some of the world‘s preeminent paleontologists as they uncover evidence that the descendents of dinosaurs still walk (or fly) among us.
From the exotic, trackless expanses and sand dunes of Mongolia‘s Gobi Desert to the dramatic sandstone buttes of New Mexico, the film will follow American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) paleontologists as they explore some of the greatest dinosaur finds in history. Through the magic of scientifically accurate computer-generated animation, these newly discovered creatures, and some familiar favorites, will come alive…in a big way!
