GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Looking for great family entertainment that we all can salute?
The Great Clips® IMAX® Theatre at the Minnesota Zoo is giving service members complimentary admission the week of Monday, June 30 through Sunday, July 6, with the purchase of any regular priced ticket and proof of military service.
Rodney Johnson, IMAX projectionist, joined KARE 11 News @ 4 with his take on the movies.
He says guests can enjoy any of the following films:
"ISLAND OF LEMURS: MADAGASCAR 3D": Join us on a spectacular journey to the remote and wondrous world of Madagascar. Lemurs arrived on this island as castaways millions of years ago and have since evolved into hundreds of diverse species – many of which are now highly endangered. Find out how Dr. Patricia Wright is trying to help these strange and adorable creatures survive in the modern world. This film is narrated by Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman.
"UNDER THE SEA 3D": Get transported to some of the most exotic and isolated undersea locations on Earth, including Southern Australia, New Guinea and many others in the Indo-Pacific region, and experience rare face-to-face encounters with some of the most mysterious and stunning creatures of the sea.
"SPACE STATION 3D": Discover how a unique partnership of 16 nations built a laboratory in outer space -- a permanent facility for the study of the effects of long-duration exposure to zero gravity and the necessary first step towards the global co-operative effort needed if man is to someday set foot on Mars. This film is a story of challenges, setbacks and triumphs.
"TRANSFORMERS 4: AGE OF EXTINCTION 3D": After an epic battle saves the world, but leaves a great city torn, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history. Meanwhile, an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans (led by Mark Wahlberg), Optimus Prime and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.
