Forces of Nature

Witness the awesome power – and the unimaginable destruction – of explosive volcanoes, ground buckling earthquakes, and deadly tornadoes as you head into the field with scientists who risk their lives exploring the origins and behaviors of these fearsome disasters. It’s a spectacular, up close glimpse of the Earth’s most destructive forces!

Titans of The Ice Age

Be transported to the beautiful and otherworldly frozen landscape of North America, Europe and Asia ten thousand years before modern civilization. Witness a time when the hunters became the hunted, where saber-tooths, dire wolves and cave bears ruled untamed continents. Journey to a lost age of mighty snow titans… an age of ice.

Jane

Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall — a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.

Pandas: The Journey Home

Follow the lives of three young pandas as they leave the public spotlight at Chengdu and take their first steps on an extraordinary journey for their species. From tender moments to tenterhooks, every key event will be captured as China prepares to set them free.

Great White Shark

Explore the great white shark’s place in our imaginations, in our fears, and in its role at the top of the oceanic food chain. Shot on location in South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico and California, and culminating in a direct encounter between man and shark, Great White Shark looks to find the truth behind the mythic creature forever stigmatized by its portrayal in the world’s first blockbuster movie, Jaws.

Flying Monsters

220 million years ago, dinosaurs were beginning their domination of Earth. But another group of reptiles was about to make an extraordinary leap: pterosaurs were taking control of the skies. The story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastical than any fiction.

Please note that due to a private event, the Aykroyd Family Theatre will closed to the public on Friday, December 7. We apologize for any inconvenience.
