If you haven’t, I highly recommend it – in fact, everyone I know (adults, kids and everyone in between) who has gone to see it raves about it! It’s more than a movie, it’s a really cool 3D experience – like floating with the butterflies! The story and the facts you come away with are terrific and the visual experience is amazing.
It’s still playing at the IMAX theater at the Museum of Natural History in DC – showings are at 10:30, 1:10, 2:45 and 4:15 — make a day trip out of it! Gather up some friends, grab the kids and trek on into town, visit the museum, take in the film and have a nice lunch!
