WHITEVILLE — The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Whiteville will present “Science Cinema” on Saturday, Feb. 27, featuring Disneynature’s “The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos.”

Against a dramatic backdrop of never-before-filmed landscapes, in a remote and forgotten wilderness, “The Crimson Wing” is a miraculous story of love, courage and survival. Follow a lone chick to northern Tanzania where 1 million crimson-winged birds struggle to survive and prevail over danger and fate as they continue the circle of life.

This free, 75-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 show engaging nature and science films perfect for the entire family. Science Cinema programming is funded by a grant from the International Paper Foundation.
