CALENDAR LISTING
April 8, 2005
Nature is the Focus in Spring Lineup of Giant-Screen Films
Roar: Lions of the Kalahari, Forces of Nature, Bugs! in 3D and Lewis & Clark now showing at the California Science Center IMAX Theater
   
What:

Four films – Roar: Lions of the Kalahari, Forces of Nature, A Rainforest Adventure: Bugs! in 3D and Lewis and Clark: Great Journey West – present nature and its challenges from four different perspectives, giving movie-goers a range of film options.

Roar: Lions of the Kalahari carries the audience deep into Botswana’s Kalahari Desert where the life-and-death struggle between a real lion king and a fierce, young contender determined to oust him from his throne unfolds. Viewers are shaken in their seats by one of nature’s loudest sounds – the roars of dueling lions – delivered by the most powerful theater sound-system in the world.

Forces of Nature shows the awesome spectacle of volcanoes, earthquakes and tornadoes, and the science used to predict their occurrence in a film that was 10 years in the making.

A Rainforest Adventure: Bugs! in 3D highlights the extraordinary world of insects, focusing on the life cycles of a praying mantis and a butterfly ¾ from their birth to their inevitable encounter in the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia, where predator meets its prey.

Lewis and Clark: Great Journey West takes audiences across the great West as one of the most remarkable adventures in American history comes to life with sweeping panoramas and stunning aerial photography.
