Bugs 3D

August 30, 2013-May 23, 2014

Bugs 3D Come face-to-face with some of our world's smallest inhabitants in Bugs! – a big look at a microscopic world. Bugs! is a breakthrough live-action nature film that explores the lives of an old-world praying mantis and a beautiful butterfly, known by their Latin names, Hierodula and Papilio. Born in the same part of the exotic Borneo rainforest, Hierodula develops by incomplete metamorphosis, emerging from his egg as a mini-mantis and shedding his skin regularly on the way to gaining his adult wings. Papilio goes through a complete metamorphosis, from caterpillar to butterfly via the pupal stage. Discover a fascinating array of creatures in this lush and awe-inspiring habitat.

Titans of the Ice Age 3D

November 1, 2013-May 23, 2014

Bugs 3D Titans of the Ice Age transports viewers to the beautiful and otherworldly frozen landscapes of North America, Europe and Asia 10,000 years before modern civilization. Peer through the 3D canvas to an ancient world of ice — a time when humans shared the tundra with majestic woolly beasts. Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life, from saber-toothed cats and cave bears to dire wolves and woolly mammoths — giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans. The Ice Age marks a dynamic chapter in the development of the human spirit as our Pleistocene ancestors developed language, created art and learned to tame fire.

Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D

November 1, 2013-May 23, 2014

Mysteries of the Unseen World 3DWhat you can't see is all around you! Mysteries of the Unseen World will take audiences to places on this planet that they have never been before, to see things that are beyond their normal vision, yet literally right in front of their eyes. High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements in science that now allow us to see a whole new universe of things, events, creatures, and processes we never even knew existed and now give us new "super powers" to see beyond what is in front of us. Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Mysteries of the Unseen World will leave audiences in complete thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can't see, a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their own bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute-by-minute, and nanosecond-by-nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.
