Pandas: The Journey Home

Galapagos: Natures Wonderland 3D

In the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, there is a paradise unlike any other : the Galapagos. Amongst these remote volcanic islands, life has played out over millions of years in relative isolation. The result is a wonderland of nature, with a remarkable collection of plants and charismatic animals that have all adapted to this unique environment.
Meet giant half-ton tortoises and marine iguanas that spit sea-salt. Dance with the tropical albatrosses and hunt fishes with the colorful blue-footed boobies. Swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles away from their natural habitats. This is a story of discovery, of survival against the odds, and of nature’s ingenuity, all brought to life in stunning 3D.
Special thanks to NTV for their generous sponsorship.


D-Day 2D

Narrated by Tom Brokaw, this inspiring movie pays tribute to those who gave their lives for our freedom. It explains the Allied operation and details five keys to victory: the Liberty Ship, the C-47 “SkyTrain,” two-and-a-half-ton trucks, the Jeep, and the bulldozer. Special thanks to Perkins Restaurant and Bakery for their generous sponsorship.
