It’s like visiting a six-story classroom when you enter the National Geographic Giant Screen Theater
In this premiere theater environment (one of only a handful of 4K digital Giant Screens in the country!) your students can experience beyond life-size and incredible close-up views of the ocean, space, amazing animals and even time-travel right from their seats. Our collection of 2D and 3D movies is sure to inspire discussion, create connections and bring learning to life! Documentary movies run approximately 40-50 minutes.
Additional films may be selected from the Giant Screen Digital Library for groups of 50 or more. Scheduling these films is based on availability of the Theater.
Additional film library offerings may include:
Please note that movie availability is subject to change without advance notice. To book a movie showing for your students at discounted school group rates, please call Alison Niebuhr at 563-336-7290.
