Date Night Movie Night - The ArtistDate Night Movie Night - The Artist

Mysteries of the Unseen World
reveals phenomena that can't be seen with the naked eye, taking audiences into earthly worlds secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale.

Experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; "see" the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena that occur in the flash of a microsecond; enter a microscopic world once reserved for scientists, but now made accessible to the rest of us; and begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is to see on Earth.

High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements in science that allow us to see a universe of things, events, creatures, and processes we never even knew existed. These technologies give us new "superpowers" to see beyond what's in front of us.

Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Mysteries of the Unseen World will leave audiences in thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can't see - world that exists in the air they breathe, on their bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute by minute and nanosecond by nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.

Flying Monsters 3D - with David Attenborough
Date Night Movie Night - Flying Monsters 3D Date Night Movie Night - Flying Monsters

220 million years ago dinosaurs were beginning their domination of Earth. But another group of reptiles was about to make an extraordinary leap: pterosaurs were taking control of the skies. The story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastical than any fiction.

In Flying Monsters 3D, Sir David Attenborough the world’s leading naturalist, sets out to uncover the truth about the enigmatic pterosaurs, whose wingspans of up to 40 feet were equal to that of a modern day jet plane.

The central question and one of the greatest mysteries in paleontology is: how and why did pterosaurs fly? How did creatures the size of giraffes defy gravity and soar through prehistoric skies?

Driven by the information he finds as he attempts to answer these questions, Attenborough starts to unravel one of science’s more enduring mysteries, discovering that the marvel of pterosaur flight has evolutionary echoes that resonate even today.

Flying Monsters 3D is a groundbreaking film that uses cutting-edge 3D technology and CGI to bring the story of giant flying monsters and their prehistoric world to life. Audiences of all ages will be in awe as they enter the world and experience, as never before, REAL Flying Monsters – in 3D.
