The Rangos Giant Cinema to bring new, cooler dinosaurs to the screen
Meet unfamiliar south polar dinosaurs in Dinosaurs of Antarctica.
Beginning Wed., April 6, The Rangos Giant Cinema will show the first original large-format dinosaur film in more than a decade, Dinosaurs of Antarctica. The film brings to life the amazing and bizarre prehistoric creatures that inhabited Antarctic forests and swamps hundreds of millions of years ago.
“Dinosaurs of Antarctica takes audiences on a captivating science adventure through a real-life research expedition,” said Jason Brown, Henry Buhl Jr., Director of Carnegie Science Center. “You’ll meet new dinosaur species who roamed the continent and discover the causes and repercussions of a changing climate which may provide clues to the future as we face human-triggered warming today.”
Featuring top-tier computer graphics from the studio responsible for visual effects in Bladerunner 2049, Life of Pi and other blockbuster Hollywood titles, Dinosaurs of Antarcticais an epic chronicle of a prehistoric world now lost to ice, a 250-million-year odyssey from the Permian ice age through the warm and diverse Age of Dinosaurs – and back again to the frozen desert we know today.
From glaciers to Glacialisaurus, the film brings Antarctica’s dramatic transformation to life with a cast of bizarre, new-to-science dinosaurs and a team of paleoecologists working to reconstruct Antarctica’s hidden—greener—past.
Among a cast of strange dinosaurs and primitive amphibians, the film introduces Cryolophosaurus, the largest known early Jurassic carnivore on Earth, an apex predator of the South Polar forests. Moving further back in time, Antarctosuchus, a colossal amphibian unique to Antarctica, lurks below the surface of an ancient river. Strange mammal relatives and unfamiliar reptiles inhabit the prehistoric world of Gondwana, adapted to the sunless, sixth-month polar winter.
This film is family-friendly and has a run time of 45 minutes. Tickets are $7 per person or $6 per Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh Member. Purchase tickets and learn more at CarnegieScienceCenter.org.
