6 p.m. — LEWIS AND CLARK: GREAT JOURNEY WEST
With careful research and meticulous recreations, this scientific expedition lives again. In Lewis & Clark: Great Journey West, you'll go back to experience this monumental quest -- the journey of Lewis, Clark and their Corps of Discovery through the adventure, danger and beauty of the unmapped West. Narrated by Jeff Bridges.
7 p.m. — SPACE JUNK
Fifty years after launching our dreams into space, we’re left with a troubling legacy: a growing ring of orbiting debris that threatens the safety of earth’s orbits. Space Junk is a visually explosive journey of discovery that weighs the solutions aimed at restoring our planet’s orbits. Watch the Trailer
8 p.m. — TO THE ARCTIC
A journey to the top of the world, To The Arctic is the ultimate tale of survival. The film takes audiences on a journey into the lives of a mother polar bear and her two seven-month-old cubs as they navigate the changing Arctic wilderness they call home. Captivating footage brings moviegoers up close and personal with this family's struggle to survive in a frigid environment of melting ice, immense glaciers, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic snow-bound peaks. Watch the Trailer
9 p.m. — TO THE LIMIT
Featuring spectacular "you are there" footage of three champion athletes, the film celebrates our understanding of the human body in performance. Famed American rock climber Tony Yaniro, champion ski racer Maria Walliser and Bolshoi Ballet prima ballerina Nina Ananiashvili demonstrate the body’s potential as they strive for perfection.
