Houston Museum Of Natural Science To Feature ‘Animalopolis’
The Houston Museum of Natural Science will feature “Animaloplis,” a new IMAX film that allows visitors to explore the animal kingdom in a Seusssian-style film done in rhyme and verse and presenting 13 different wild animals as they are found in their natural habitats.
Viewers will get a unique perspective of the creatures, from the glory and majesty of lions, to the sleek grace and beauty of cheetahs.
Other animals such as polar bears, crabs, sea lions, rhinos, hippos and zebras are also captured on film.
“‘Animalopolis’ is a unique, hilarious IMAX that makes learning fun,” said Charlotte Brohi, vice president of IMAX operations. “This whimsical look at the real world of animals as they play in their natural habitat not only reaches out to parents and teachers alike but engages even the youngest of audiences who are sure to giggle, cheer and clap throughout.”
Animalopolis focuses on the lifestyles of the featured animals, sometimes giving human-like attributes to the animals to allow the audience to relate to the personalities of these creatures.
A lion bursts into opera, singing “The Marriage of Figaro” to his pride, sea lions turn somersaults and bears dance the waltz.
“Animalopolis” director Tim Huntley is an Academy Award winner for “Up,” a live-action short, and has also received an Emmy and three Emmy nominations.
