“Oceans has been a HUGE hit at MSI! Since launching the film in March, our newly refurbished Laser CineDome theater is on track to have one of its best years in the past decade. In fact, this past month alone our theater attained its best capture rate in over 10 years!”
– Gil Perez, Director of Film & Guest Operations, Museum of Science and Industry Chicago
“Oceans: Our Blue Planet is our best performing film so far this summer. We plan to keep this film on our public and school schedule for at least a year.”
– Charlotte Brohi, Vice President, Film Programming, Houston Museum of Natural Science
“We just opened Oceans: Our Blue Planet and our audiences are loving it. It looks great on our dome and there are truly some stunning images. Kate Winslet’s beautiful voice and narration is perfect for this film.”
– Heather Farnworth, Director, International Sales and Featured Products, Ontario Science Center
“We, and our audience, are very critical on how a film looks at the dome. When we saw Oceans we all got a big smile… what a great film and it looks great on the dome too. At our opening we got far more than usual super positive comments, so we are looking forward to our run with this film this summer.”
– Berend Reijnhoudt, Executive Director, Omniversum, The Hague
“Box office for Oceans has been terrific. Our audiences really love the film.”
– Don Walker, Director of Guest Services, Tennessee Aquarium
“A beautiful look at life under the sea, Oceans engages audiences by illuminating the fascinating behaviors of a wide variety of remarkable creatures. Our audience and staff members here at Pacific Science Center have shown great enthusiasm for this documentary.”
– Elizabeth Calhoun, Theater Operations Manager, Pacific Science Center
“The children are amazed by the ritual of the fish that opens the shell to eat, the theatre is then in unison with their cries of astonishment and admiration.”
– Nelly Duval, Direction Général, La Geode, Paris
“An important film with an important message, Oceans is now delivering at the box office too.”
– Daine C. Appleberry, Director of Guest Services, Audubon Nature Institute
