Prepare yourself for INSANE CUTENESS during the new 3D film Pandas: The Journey Home from National Geographic. Fall in love anew with this iconic, captivating creature and better understand the desperate plight of pandas in the wild.
Shy, elusive and gentle creatures, they once ranged in great numbers between Beijing and the Himalayas. But now, the giant pandas are on the brink of extinction, with fewer than 1,600 remaining. Pandas: The Journey Home, a groundbreaking natural-history film, captures for the first time in 3D the highly endangered giant pandas living in Wolong National Nature Reserve in the People’s Republic of China. Pandas: The Journey Home gives audiences a unique glimpse into one of the most incredible conservation efforts in human history. The scientists’ goal: to increase the numbers in captivity and, far more ambitiously, to return pandas to the wild —to their natural home.

Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D takes audiences on an extraordinary journey into unseen worlds and hidden dimensions beyond our normal vision to uncover the mysteries of things too fast, too slow, too small, or simply invisible. On January 2, the Lockheed Martin DynaTheater will premiere Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D, an original production by National Geographic Entertainment and Days End Pictures, narrated by Forest Whitaker.
Experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; “see” the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena that occur in the flash of a microsecond; enter a microscopic world once reserved for scientists, but now made accessible to the rest of us; and begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is to see on Earth.
Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D is funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation and generous support from Lockheed Martin and FEI, a manufacturer of electron microscopes.
Sponsored locally by the Albuquerque Journal.
