Why has it been fought over, destroyed, and rebuilt countless times over its 5,000-year history? What made it so important to so many different cultures? A new film from National Geographic, JERUSALEM, attempts to answer these questions and more as it takes you on a breathtaking and visually stunning tour of one of the world’s oldest and most enigmatic cities.

 

  • Experience first-hand the vibrance, beauty, and rhythms of the Old City from the people who call it home.
  • Explore the city’s most extraordinary historical sites and understand why Jerusalem became the crossroads of civilization.

 

Rare access to Jerusalem’s most sacred sites creates an intimate and engaging portrait of the city, and stunning, never-before-seen aerial photography will leave you in awe of its beauty and majesty.

Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D

What You Can't See Is All Around You

Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D takes audiences on an extraordinary journey into unseen worlds and hidden dimensions beyond our normal vision to uncover the mysteries of things too fast, too slow, too small, or simply invisibleOn January 2, the Lockheed Martin DynaTheater will premiere Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D, an original production by National Geographic Entertainment and Days End Pictures, narrated by Forest Whitaker.

Experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; “see” the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena that occur in the flash of a microsecond; enter a microscopic world once reserved for scientists, but now made accessible to the rest of us; and begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is to see on Earth.

Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D is funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation and generous support from Lockheed Martin and FEI, a manufacturer of electron microscopes.

 

Sponsored locally by the Albuquerque Journal.

 


 

Titans of the Ice Age 3D


Titans of the Ice Age is an action-packed immersive portal to the great Pleistocene ice age, 20,000 years back in time. Narrated by Academy Award® winning actor Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music, Up, The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo, The Beginners), Titans of the Ice Age transports viewers to the otherworldly frozen landscapes of the northern hemisphere 10,000 years before modern civilization.

Shot on location at Yellowstone National Park, the Northern Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, and Alaska, Titans of the Ice Age brings this harsh and beautiful era to life–a world burid in our ancestral memory, populated by saber-tooth cats, giant sloths, dire wolves, and the iconic woolly mammoths. Travel across monumental glaciers and sweeping grasslands, rich in life. Roam the mammoth steppe with baby Lyuba, a female Woolly Mammoth calf recently exposed by the melting Siberian permafrost, now one of the best-preserved mammoth mummies in the world. Discover the story of Zed, one of the most complete Colombian Mammoth skeletons ever uncovered, extracted in 2008 from under a Los Angeles parking lot next to the famous La Brea Tar Pits.

Titans of the Ice Age is a production of Giant Screen Films and D3D Cinema, in association with The Field Museum, Chicago.
