3D Theater Reopens at N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences
Venue returns with major upgrades
North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences’s refurbished WRAL 3D Theater reopens this Friday, August 13. Upgrades include a new sound system, 4K laser projector, and more, made possible through a $275,000 grant from the A.J. Fletcher Foundation. With the reemergence also comes a slate of short nature films that are both familiar and fresh for the local audience.
The longstanding favorites are Tiny Giants and Great White Shark. The former tells the story of a chipmunk and a grasshopper mouse in the Arizona desert and the real-life battles and creatures they face. The latter takes viewers into the world of the most famous shark species of all time.
New nature films are Volcanoes and Incredible Predators. Volcanoes investigates the history of these natural phenomenons and offers a look at the more than 500 active ones today. Incredible Predators looks at the world’s top predators, whether by land, sea, or air.
Tickets run $6 for adults; $5 for seniors, students, and military; $4 for kids 3-12, and $3 for members. All tickets come with 3D glasses you can take home. More info and schedules can be found here.
