There will be an exclusive free screening of the IMAX film Humpback Whales 3D on Saturday, June 27, 2015 (next weekend) at the California Science Center.

Interactive family whale activities will begin at 9:00am (fun, fun, fun) and the movie screening will follow at 10:00am. After the movie, there will be a Q&A Session with the film's director Greg MacGillvray.

What's even more awesome is that all future film critics (kids ages 5-15) who attend the screening are invited to submit a 150-word review of the film by Tuesday, July 7.

Ten submissions will be selected (all 10 will win an awesome Humpback Whales prize package) and one first place winner will get a fabulous prize that includes a published interview with the film's director; a yearlong membership to the California Science Center, valued at $65 and free IMAX tickets, among many other goodies!
I wish my little Benny was old enough to participate!!

The first thing you need to do is RSVP immediately to attend the free screening (Space is limited).
The RSVP must be emailed to with your child's name and number of guests (up to 3) . Note: parking is not covered. Vehicles using the guest lot will have to pay $10 per car.

More details about the contest, the screening and the movie can be found here.

Now, let's talk about this awe-inspiring movie: It's narrated by Ewan McGregor. Humpback Whales is said to be "an extraordinary journey into the mysterious world of one of nature’s most awe-inspiring
marine mammals. Set in the spectacular waters of Alaska, Hawaii and the remote islands of Tonga, this ocean adventure offers audiences an up-close look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play and take care of their young. Captured for the first time with IMAX® 3D cameras, and found
in every ocean on earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a slow but remarkable recovery. Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out why humpbacks are the most acrobatic of all whales, why they sing their haunting songs, and why these intelligent 55-foot, 50-ton animals migrate up to 10,000 miles round-trip every year." More details on the film's website.
Hope you're able to make it (with your talented and opinionated film critic children!!).
