'Penguins'

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 08-07-2013 09-01-2014 15 'Penguins' "Penguins," a new giant-screen adventure following a very special King Penguin as he returns to his birthplace in the sub-Antarctic, opens at the American Museum of Natural History, on Monday, July 8. The film will screen at the museum through Jan. 9, 2014. Produced by award-winning Atlantic Productions and distributed by nWave Pictures Distribution, the film is narrated by world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough. Penguin City, on the remote island of South Georgia in the southern Atlantic Ocean, is home to hundreds of albatrosses, fur seals, and brawling elephant seals, as well as 6 million penguins. The young male King Penguin at the center of Penguins must earn his place among the island inhabitants while finding a mate and raising a family. The film follows him through 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. The 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 will be shown daily in the Museum?s Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Theater, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm (hourly). To purchase tickets in advance, the public should call 212-769-5200 or visit amnh.org. A service charge may apply. (For ticket pricing, please see page 3.) nWave Pictures Distribution and Serengeti Entertainment present Penguins, a film produced by Atlantic Productions in association with British media powerhouse SKY 3D (BSkyB) and US-based Galileo Digital Entertainment. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=142376 American Museum of Natural History true DD/MM/YYYY
