Science Cinema at the Museum features National Geographic’s ‘Arctic Tale’

WHITEVILLE — The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Whiteville presents “Science Cinema,” on Saturday, Jan. 30, featuring National Geographic’s “Arctic Tale.”

This epic adventure follows two majestic creatures, the walrus, Seela, and the polar bear, Nanu, from birth through adolescence, maturity and ultimately, parenthood. Viewers will bear witness to the cycle of life as it unfolds in a vast, frozen landscape that could pose problems for all of humankind if it continues to thaw at the current rate.

This free, 96-minute film will be shown at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. This film is rated G. The last Saturday of each month, the museum will be showing engaging nature and science films perfect for the entire family. Science Cinema programming is funded by a grant from the International Paper Foundation.

Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. For more information, please call the museum at 910-914-4185 or email
