Glorious Galapagos


Join marine biologist Carole Baldwin, PhD on a tour of one of the world’s most intriguing natural environments, the Galapagos Islands — a group of 19 islands and 42 islets located on the equator 600 miles west of the Ecuadorian mainland. In brilliant clarity in the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s IMAX dome theater, experience the volcanic archipelago’s famous tortoises, sea lions, lizards, and birds, and then dive beneath the ocean to find fantastic sea creatures, some of which were unidentified prior to the making of the film. Become immersed in a magical world that is still evolving, providing scientists with a window into the past and to a frontier for exploration. And in perhaps the most spectacular sequence of all, descend to depths of 3,000 feet with Baldwin to study biodiversity and the processes of evolution as part of an ongoing effort by scientists to understand the forces that may ultimately affect the survival of our own species. The film also examines the history of the archipelago, including the time Charles Darwin spent in Galapagos, and his subsequent publishing of his theory of evolution. Originally released in 1999, this is the first time the film has ever shown in San Diego. Playing through December 31. (619/238-1233, www.rhfleet.org)
