An extraordinary journey to the top of the world, the documentary adventure “To The Arctic 3D” tells the ultimate tale of survival. The show opens April 20, 2012 in the ATK IMAX Theatre. Narrated by Oscar® winner Meryl Streep, the film takes audiences on a never-before-experienced journey into the lives of a mother polar bear and her twin seven-month-old cubs as they navigate the changing Arctic wilderness they call home.
Captivating, adventurous and intimate footage brings moviegoers up close and personal with this family’s struggle to survive in a frigid environment of melting ice, immense glaciers, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic snow-bound peaks.
The musical score is by Steve Wood, with songs by Paul McCartney.
Clark Planetarium will be holding a special event on Saturday, April 21, 2012 to welcome the arrival of these magnificent animals. The Hogle Zoo will be here from 1-4 p.m to talk about polar bears and their new exhibit, Rocky Shores, scheduled to open June 1. Rocky Shores will house polar bears, seals, sea lions and otters.
