Around here, we are big fans of butterflies. We run after them in our yard, stare at them resting on our giant butterfly bush, enter every butterfly garden we ever see and when we see a book on them, you better believe that gets checked out of the library.
So, as you can imagine, we can’t wait to see the new IMAX movie Flight of the Butterflies here in Charlotte! It’s called the most incredible migration on Earth here at The Discovery Place and to celebrate I am giving away not only a family 4 pack of tickets to see this amazing show but also a fabulous set of Monarch Butterfly Luggage so you too can travel anywhere you like in style!
It’s a natural history epic. It’s a compelling detective story. It’s a scientific adventure at its best. Check out the trailer and imagine this in a phenomenal IMAX theater!
The amazing journey of the monarch butterfly is in flight on the giant screen at Discovery Place’s The Charlotte Observer IMAX® Dome Theatre. The breathtaking new adventure from SK Films tracks the voyage of hundreds of millions of butterflies between Canada and Mexico in a transfixing tale of scientific breakthrough, discovery. Watch millions of butterflies fill the movie screen as they embark on one of the most fascinating migrations on Earth. After debuting in New York and Los Angeles, Discovery Place is one of only 50 exclusive institutions nationwide to show the film in 2013.
Following the year-long annual migration cycle of the butterflies, an award-winning production team filmed hundreds of millions of monarchs in their remote overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico in 2011 and again in 2012 and also along their migratory routes from Canada, across the United States and into Mexico. The technology of IMAX® immerses you in the astounding migration experience as two generations of the butterflies migrate north, and then a “Super Generation” of monarchs miraculously finds its way from Canada to a few isolated mountaintops in Mexico.
