IMAX: Galapagos: Nature's Wonderland

Special Screening - In the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, there is a paradise unlike any other: the Galapagos Arhipelago. Amongst these facinating 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 colourful blue-footed boobies. Dive into the ociean with flightless cormorants and swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles 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 microscopit plankton to Galapagos sharks. "Galapagos:Nature's Wonderland" is life in stunning IMAX. You're invited to explore these extraordinary and enchanted islands, whose remarkable inhabitants helped change the way we understand nature. Run time 45 min. Rated G.
