Pandas (G)

Cast: Kristen Bell
Runtime: 40 mins.

Pandas are beloved around the world, and now they are coming to the big screen in the IMAX® original film "Pandas," a breathtaking documentary adventure and amazing experience for the whole family. At Chengdu Panda Base in China, scientists are dedicated to protecting the species by breeding adult Giant Pandas in order to introduce cubs into the wild. This film follows one such researcher, whose passion leads her to initiate a new technique inspired by a black bear program in rural New Hampshire. What starts as a cross-culture collaboration becomes a life-changing journey for an American biologist who crosses an ocean to join her; a scientist from Inner Mongolia; and a very curious female cub named Qian Qian, born in captivity.

Captured with IMAX® Cameras, join Qian Qian on an exciting new adventure in the mountains of Sichuan as she takes her first steps outside her protected habitat, discovering her true animal nature... even as she faces the challenges of the unknown.

Amazon Adventure (NR)

Cast: Robert Daws, Billy Postlethwaite
Runtime: 45 mins.

Amazon Adventure tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates' fascinating 11-year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest as a young man who risks his life for science in the 1850's. Bates unearths the major discovery of the phenomenon of mimicry, whereby certain animals adopt the look of others that helps them deceive predators and gain an advantage to survive. Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 species new to science and most importantly, putting the first ever case for the creation of a new species, which Charles Darwin called the "beautiful proof" for Natural Selection.

National Parks Adventure (America Wild) (NR)

Cast: Conrad Anker, Max Lowe
Runtime: 40 mins.

The power of America's national parks is undeniable. Millions have packed up the family to hike through impossibly lush forests, to gaze upon towering cliffs and deep-plunging canyons, to witness the breathtaking arcs of natural history, and, most of all, to share moments of wonder amid the protected treasures of this land. A film that offers not only a sweeping overview of the national parks' history, but is equal parts adrenaline-pumping odyssey and soulful reflection on what the wilderness means to us all.
