DINOSAURS OF ANTARCTICA LAUNCHES STRONG
Dinosaurs of Antarctica, the 2020 blockbuster museum cinema release from Giant Screen Films, launched into its first wave of Spring theaters in February, on the road to over 75 global museum exhibitions this year. The World Premiere was held at Discovery Place in Charlotte, NC, the production’s official educational partner. The opening events included a series of hands-on polar science programs supported by the National Science Foundation, including paleoecology workshops for middle school students and scientist presentations featuring the film’s Antarctic expedition team members.

ABOUT THE FILM
From the Permian through the Jurassic, journey to the south polar landscapes of Antarctica hundreds of millions of years ago. Roam the primitive forest and thick swamps with bizarre dinosaurs and colossal amphibians. Enter a surreal world of bug-eyed giants and egg-laying mammals – where survival means enduring the sunless, six-month polar winter surrounded by meat-eaters with night vision. Join intrepid Antarctic scientists on a quest to understand the ice continent’s profound transformation over deep time — investigating the parallels and differences between prehistoric climate events and human-triggered warming today.
Welcome to the lost prehistoric world of Gondwana…
