Titans Of The Ice Age (11:00 am)
Now Showing - general audience

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. Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life – from saber-toothed cats and giant sloths to the iconic mammoths, giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans. The magic of the giant screen reveals the harsh and beautiful kingdom of these titans: an ancient world of ice, the dawn of our ancestors, a time when humans fought for survival alongside majestic woolly beasts.

 

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. Discover the story of Zed, one of the most complete Colombian Mammoth skeletons ever uncovered, extracted in 2008 from under a Los Angeles parking lot next to the famous La Brea Tar Pits. Witness a time when the hunters became the hunted, where saber-tooths, dire wolves and cave bears ruled untamed continents.

Galapagos: Nature's Wonderland (12:00 - noon)
General Audience

In the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, there is a paradise unlike any other: the Galapagos archipelago. Amongst these fascinating and remote volcanic islands, life has played out over millions of years in relative isolation. The result is a wonderland of nature, with a remarkable collection of plants and charismatic animals that have all adapted to this unique environment.

Meet giant half-ton tortoises and marine iguanas that spit sea-salt from their noses. Dance with tropical albatrosses and hunt fishes with the colorful blue-footed boobies. Dive into the ocean with flightless cormorants and swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles away from their natural habitats. Around the archipelago, converging cross-winds and deep, cold, nutrient-rich currents have made possible a unique and bio-diverse marine oasis, which boasts everything from abundant microscopic plankton to Galapagos sharks.

This is a story of discovery, of survival against the odds, and of nature's ingenuity, all brought to stunning life. You're invited to explore these extraordinary and enchanted islands, whose remarkable inhabitants helped change the way we understand nature.

For the first time ever, look inside a chrysalis, thanks to advanced MRI and micro CT scans. Be captivated by the true and compelling story of an intrepid scientist's 40-year search to find their secret hideaway, with the help of citizen scientists across North America.

Pandas: The Journey Home 3D (2:15 pm)
General Audience

National Geographic Entertainment is proud to bring Pandas: The Journey Home to the world! You will fall in love anew with this iconic, delightful creature and better understand the desperate plight of pandas in the wild. The filmmakers of Pandas: The Journey Home were granted unprecedented access to the Wolong Panda Center in China to bring to light the extraordinary efforts of the Chinese to secure the panda's future in the wild.



Directed by Nicolas Brown and produced by Caroline Hawkins of Oxford Scientific Films, the film follows the center's pandas at a significant milestone in their history. After decades of its captive breeding program, the center has hit its target number of 300 giant pandas and must now tackle the challenge of reintroducing breeding populations to the wild. The filmmakers were allowed to film the release of pandas bred in captivity and to follow a group of wild pandas in their mountain habitat.

Narrated by veteran filmmaker and renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough, “Penguins 3D” celebrates the destiny of a very special King Penguin, who returns to his birthplace in the sub-Antarctic. Known as Penguin City, the island is home to hundreds of albatrosses, fur seals and brawling elephant seals — as well as six million penguins!

Somehow our hero must earn his place among the island inhabitants and fulfill his destiny by finding a mate and raising a family. What follows is the story of the most challenging time in a King Penguin’s life, when he is driven to nurture and defend his offspring against harsh weather and fierce predators.

This cosmic drama plays out in one of Earth’s last great wildernesses, amid steep mountain ranges and windblown plains half buried beneath snow and ice. “Penguins 3D” is an unforgettable tale of one King Penguin’s journey through his species’ central rite of passage.

The film was entirely filmed in 3-D, using state-of-the-art technologies, and on location in South Georgia Island, a British overseas territory located in the southern Atlantic Ocean.
