Member Premier: Be the first to see “Great White Shark 3D” with a Special Presentation from Expert Paul Clarkson of the Monterey Bay Aquarium
Be the first to see Moody Gardens’ newest 3D spectacular, “Great White Shark 3D.”
Showing on the largest screen in Texas, “Great White Shark 3D,” explores the animal’s place in our imaginations, in our fears, and in the reality of its role at the top of the oceanic food chain. You’ll see the Great White through the eyes of people who swim with sharks: Mike Rutzen, Frederic Buyle and William Winram. The film is narrated by Bill Nighy of the “Underworld” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies.
Before the film, enjoy a special presentation from Paul Clarkson of the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Calif. In 2002, the Monterey Bay Aquarium began Project White Shark – a project designed to promote the study, awareness and conservation of these magnificent animals. They were ultimately able to successfully maintain white sharks in a public aquarium for the first time. Clarkson will discuss how we did it and what they’ve learned about these amazing sharks along the way.
Clarkson is the Curator of Husbandry Operations at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Before coming to Monterey 6 years ago, he was lucky enough to help open both Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta and Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, Calif.
The presentation will be Saturday, June 28, at 9 a.m. in the MG 3D Theater. The film will show at 10 a.m.
If you are interested in attending, you can RSVP online or by calling 409-683-4215 by June 24.
