Thanks to Duquesne Light’s sponsorship, all visitors will enjoy a free showing of BBC Earth’s inspiring, heartwarming documentary about the tiny animals living among us. Narrated by Stephen Fry, the film transports audiences into forests and scorched deserts to witness a chipmunk and grasshopper mouse in their respective fights for survival.
Fri.–Sun., Jan. 25–27
Perfection or death: Those are the two outcomes free soloist climber Alex Honnold fearlessly faces in National Geographic Documentary Film’s Free Solo, a new documentary that follows the skillful athlete as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream of climbing the 3,000-foot El Capitan rock in Yosemite National Park – without a rope.
Award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin present a stunning, intimate, and unflinching portrait of Honnold in this edge-of-your-seat thriller.
