CLASSIC FILM – Titanica

Love the story of the Titanic, but hate having Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” stuck in your head for the rest of the week? Back this month in honor of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, Titanica follows an expedition to the wreck site of the R.M.S. Titanic, 12,500 feet below the surface of the Atlantic. Filmed from the twin deep sea Russian submersibles Mir 1 and Mir 2, Titanica immerses audiences in the adventure, as the international team of explorers investigates the hull and debris field on the ocean floor. In counterpoint to the expedition, the film reveals the building of the great ship, documented in stunning period images and, poignantly, the remembrances of an elderly Eva Hart, once a seven-year-old passenger aboard the doomed ship.

Schedule:

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. during the month of April.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND – Tornado Alley

Back for a limited time, Tornado Alley is an explosive giant-screen adventure that takes viewers on an epic chase through the “severe weather capital of the world.” Narrated by Bill Paxton, the film follows Storm Chasers star Sean Casey and the scientists of VORTEX2, the largest tornado-research project ever assembled, on separate missions to encounter one of Earth’s most awe-inspiring events—the birth of a tornado. Watch the trailer here.

COMING APRIL 20 – To The Arctic

To The Arctic takes you on a never before seen journey into the lives of a mother polar bear and her two seven-month old cubs as they navigate the changing Arctic wilderness they call home. Captivating, adventurous and intimate footage brings you up close and personal with this family’s struggle to survive and thrive in a frigid environment of melting ice, immense glaciers, spectacular waterfalls and majestic snow-bound peaks. Travel with a herd of caribou and plunge into the ocean with the walruses in this brand new film from Warner Bros. Pictures, MacGillivray Freeman Films and IMAX Corporation. Watch the trailer here.

Make a day of it and add on tickets to the blockbuster exhibition A Day in Pompeii. Jewelry, gorgeous frescos, household items and body casts show what life was like before, during and after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The exhibit is open late, with the last entry at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. Visit www.cincymuseum.org for more information.
