The Arctic: Our Last Great Wilderness

  • 11:00 AM

Imagine a place in the far north of Alaska that is vast, wild, and magical – where one of earth’s greatest natural spectacles unfolds. Princess Daazhraii Johnson of the Gwich’in tribe reveals the land that has sustained her people for untold generations. Experience a world that has evolved intact and untamed since the beginning of time. Journey with National Geographic photographer Florian Schulz on his five-year quest to film the elusive 200,000 strong Porcupine Caribou herd as it migrates to the Arctic Coastal Plain, one of the longest animal migrations on earth. Filled with intimate moments featuring polar bears and musk oxen, wolves, grizzlies, golden eagles and more, The Arctic: Our Last Great Wilderness is the first cinematic exploration of a world few have truly seen until now.

Blue Whales: Return of the Giants 3D

  • 10:00 AM
  • 12:00 PM
  • 2:00 PM

Blue Whales: Return of the Giants 3D, narrated by award-winning actor Andy Serkis, takes viewers on a journey of a lifetime to explore the world of the magnificent blue whale—a species rebounding from the brink of extinction. Blue whales are the largest animals ever to have lived, bigger than any dinosaur, yet we know surprisingly little about them. Blue Whales: Return of the Giants 3D will entertain audiences of all ages and transform our understanding of these iconic creatures.

The film follows two scientific expeditions: one, a high-risk mission to find a missing population of blue whales not seen in 50 years; and the other, to join Diane Gendron, the “Blue Whale Whisperer,” in Mexico’s Gulf of California, where she and her team explore the important role these remarkable animals play in the health of our oceans.
Joined by a cast of supporting characters, from dolphins and sperm whales to sea lions and orcas, the blue whale finally gets a turn in the spotlight—in life-size on the giant screen!

10 am showtime is reserved for Members and Groups only.
