  • Secret Ocean 3D

    Members IMAX Screening - Jean-Michel Cousteau's Secret Ocean 3D

    Save the Date - Wednesday, November 9, 2016, 7:30 p.m.

    Members are invited to a free screening of Secret Ocean 3D, a film by Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of ocean pioneer Jacques Cousteau. Narrated by renowned oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, the film is a breakthrough look at a secret world within the ocean that is perhaps the biggest story of all—that the smallest life in the sea is the mightiest force on which we all depend. Alongside marine biologist Holly Lohuis, Jean-Michel Cousteau invites audiences to dive into this whole new world that will leave them in awe of the beauty and diversity of the oceans – the source of all life on our planet – and inspire an even stronger desire to protect what they have either seen for the first time or perhaps re-discovered along the journey.

    Film director Jean- Michel Cousteau and marine biologist Holly Lohuis will be joining us to introduce the film and respond to audience questions.

    Advance reservations are required and will be taken on a first-received, first-reserved basis. Due to theater capacity, reservations are limited to two adults and four children (age 17 and under) per Membership.

    Please note that reservations for this event will open on October 28.
