Turtle Odyssey 3D - Denver Museum of Nature and Science, 2001 Colorado Blvd, Denver CO 80205

For 100 million years, sea turtles have traversed our planet’s waters, surviving mass extinctions and playing a critical role in maintaining healthy marine food webs. In the new IMAX film Turtle Odyssey 3D, you will swim alongside an Australian green sea turtle named Bunji as she takes an incredible journey across thousands of miles of open ocean. From hatchling to adulthood, Bunji has some really wild encounters with playful sea lions, tiny sea horses, and vibrant clown fish. She will eventually migrate, with mysterious precision, back to the very beach where she was born, to lay her own eggs and the foundation for the next generation.

Imagine the Moon - DMNS Gates Planetarium, 2001 Colorado Blvd, Denver CO 80205

Imagine the Moon, explores how the Moon has inspired human creativity, learning, and exploration ever since we have looked to the sky. Each discovery has brought new opportunities to contemplate and imagine, until, driven by dreams, we left Earth and went there in the amazing journeys that culminated in astronauts walking on the Moon. People have imagined the Moon as a glowing disk in the sky, a destination in space, and a world that shares its origin with the Earth. The power of human imagination continues to inspire our relationship with the Moon as our partner in space and companion in our sky.

Black Holes - DMNS Gates Planetarium, 2001 Colorado Blvd, Denver CO 80205

There's a place from which nothing escapes, not even light, where time and space literally come to end. It's at this point, inside this fantastic riddle, that black holes exert their sway over the cosmos … and our imaginations. In this Museum-produced show, zip through other-worldly wormholes, experience the creation of the Milky Way Galaxy, and witness the violent death of a star and subsequent birth of a black hole. Mathematical equations, cutting-edge science, and Einstein's theories fill in holes along the way, providing the most complete picture yet on this mysterious phenomenon. Can you feel the pull?
