New 3D Movie: Tiny Giants

Beginning Saturday, July 23rd

Tiny Giants 3D will transport audiences into our miniature hero’s astonishing world, showing that the smaller you are the bigger the adventure.  A chipmunk in a wild wood is forced to grow up fast when he finds himself alone for the first time. Facing experienced rivals and huge predators, our hero must find the courage to gather enough acorns for winter. Unless he crams his huge cheeks and subterranean winter store with at least one hundred nuts, he’ll never have the energy to survive. More info and movie times.

3D Movie: Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure

Now Playing!

Shot on location in the jungles of Borneo, more than 40 insects are captured in minute detail in this 3D movie. The movie follows the life cycles of the caterpillar known as Papilio and the praying mantis known as Hierodula. As a caterpillar, Papilio dines on leaves, builds a cocoon, and becomes a butterfly before searching for a mate and laying eggs. As a butterfly, she survives by drinking the nectar from flowers. Meanwhile Hierodula catches flies for dinner, sheds his outer layer, and mates with a female mantis twice his size. Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure will only be showing for a limited time. Don't miss this rainforest adventure! More info and movie times.
