Join us for our family-friendly Double Features where we combine our favorite fulldome shows which are geared towards younger audiences.
Life of Trees
In the "Life of Trees" a cheeky ladybug named Dolores and a quirky firefly called Mike take the audience on an adventerous journey of exploration into the wondrous world of trees. Taking the perspective of insects, the fulldome film reveals the magic of the microcosm. On their excursion these two creepy-crawlies zip around a tree, and in doing so, playfully learn its secrets: How do plants get their food from the sun? How do they grow? How does water get from the roots to the top of the crown? And how does all this make life on our earth possible?
Narrated by Frances McDormand, Habitat Earth plunges below the ocean’s surface to explore the dynamic relationships found in deep ocean ecosystems. Digs beneath the forest floor to discover how Earth’s tallest trees rely on tiny fungi to survive. Soars to new heights to witness the intricate intersection between human and ecological networks. Habitat Earth features stunning visualizations of both biological and human-built networks (and of how they intersect). Join us on this immersive journey through the interconnectedness of life on Earth.
