Flying Monsters in IMAX

Through Monday, September 3
Discovery Place Science

While dinosaurs walked the earth, monsters ruled the skies .

Just as dinosaurs began their domination of Earth, pterosaurs ruled the prehistoric skies. Some with wingspans as long as a modern jet plane, these flying reptiles were as spectacular in appearance as they were amazing in flight. The story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastical than any fiction.

In Flying Monsters, join world-renowned naturalist and documentary filmmaker David Attenborough as he sets out to uncover the truth about the enigmatic pterosaurs. 

Attenborough works with scientists to understand the incredible story of the evolution of the pterosaurs, a story that unfolds in such stunning locations as New Mexico, the Jurassic Coast of Lyme Regis in Britain, an ancient pterosaur landing site in Southern France and a fossil pit in Germany where near perfect pterosaur specimens have been found. 

The central question and one of the greatest mysteries in paleontology is: how and why did pterosaurs fly? How did lizards the size of giraffes defy gravity and soar through prehistoric skies? Driven by the information he finds as he attempts to answer these questions, Attenborough starts to unravel one of sciences more enduring mysteries, discovering that the marvel of pterosaur flight has evolutionary echoes that resonate even today. 

Flying Monsters is a groundbreaking film that uses cutting-edge IMAX technology and CGI to bring the story of giant flying monsters and their prehistoric world to life. Audiences of all ages will be in awe as they enter the world and experience, as never before, REAL Flying Monsters in immersive IMAX.
