Curriculum Guides Online Now
Dear Museum Cinema Colleagues,
At Giant Screen Films, we’re supporting the worldwide efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing, working from home, and following the advice of medical professionals and civic leaders.
With the temporary closure of many schools as well as institutions like yours, we want to build on all of your efforts to support remote learning. As such, we are making three documentary films available for streaming at no cost through June 15. These films will hopefully provide meaningful informal learning opportunities for students and viewers of all ages, including those in under-served communities, and are supplemented by educational guides offering fun and informative activities to reinforce key learning concepts.
We’re making these films available through Vimeo, and suggest you repost these on your own institutional websites and social media, in order to continue to engage with your visitors who trust your institution to provide compelling, relevant educational films in your theater. To facilitate this process, we’ve provided some graphics and descriptions which may be helpful for reposting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc., available HERE.
We wish the best for you and your families as we all work through this unsettling and unpredictable challenge, and look forward to engaging with you closely once you reopen your doors to the community. In the meantime, stay healthy, stay safe and stay home!
With sincere appreciation,
The Giant Screen Films team.
Part historic journey and part forensic adventure, Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs follows researchers and explorers as they piece together the archaeological and genetic clues of Egyptian mummies. Through ambitious computer graphics and dramatic reconstructions, the film tells the story of one of the greatest finds in modern history: the late 19th century discovery of a cache of forty mummies, including twelve Kings of Egypt, among them the legendary Rameses the Great. Narrated by Christopher Lee. Click HERE to watch.
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.

Wild Ocean is an award-winning, action-packed adventure exploring the interplay between man and our endangered ocean ecosystem. The film highlights one of nature’s greatest migration spectacles, plunging viewers into an underwater feeding frenzy, an epic struggle for survival where whales, sharks, dolphins, seals, gannets and billions of fish collide with the most voracious sea predator, mankind.
