Dinosaurs Alive!

Supported by  

Dinosaurs Alive! is a global adventure of science and discovery—featuring the earliest dinosaurs of the Triassic Period to the monsters of the Cretaceous, “reincarnated” life-sized for the giant screen. Audiences will journey with some of the world’s preeminent paleontologists as they uncover evidence that the descendants of dinosaurs still walk (or fly) among us. Narrated by Michael Douglas.

If you need any further convincing, here’s Ellen O’Connor’s review (Ellen is the museum’s Program Manager for the William L. McKnight Omnitheater, so if anyone’s an expert on giant screen films, it’s her!):

“If you want to experience what it is like to be a paleontologist, Dinosaurs Alive! will give you a good feel for it and may just inspire you to become one. We learn about Roy Chapman Andrews and his early expeditions and dinosaur finds in the Gobi desert. We travel to the Flaming Cliffs in Mongolia, a treasure trove of dinosaur fossils. We also travel to Ghost Ranch in New Mexico and experience a dig site. Dinosaurs Alive! transitions from fossilized dinosaurs in the field to animated dinosaurs showing us what prehistoric life might have been like.”
