Opening Thursday, Sept. 29, Cook Memorial Theater will begin showing visually-stunning 20-minute 3D movies, starting with Oceans: Our Blue Planet and Antarctica: On The Edge.

Antarctica: On The Edge
From its place anchoring the bottom of the globe, Antarctica might seem too frozen to have any impact on the rest of the planet. But the very fact that it is constantly changing – the sea around it freezing and thawing every year – makes it the planet’s beating heart, its rhythm intimately influencing the earth’s weather, ocean currents, and climate. Join National Geographic explorer Jon Bowermaster as he and his team travel along the continent’s frozen coastline in Antarctica: On the Edge.
