“Island of Lemurs” is an eco-journey and a great story
Lose yourself in Morgan Freeman’s smooth voice and discover the mesmerizing life of lemurs as the Academy Award-winner narrates the new documentary in IMAX 3D, “Island of Lemurs: Madagascar.”
The film takes viewers on a spectacular journey to the remote and wondrous world of Madagascar. This visual adventure tells the incredible true story of how nature’s greatest explorers, lemurs, came to their island kingdom. Freeman narrates as the creatures are seen traveling as castaways and landing on the beautiful island millions of years ago. The peculiar and lovable lemurs have since evolved into hundreds of diverse species—but today they are highly endangered.
Director David Douglas and writer/producer Drew Fellman collaborate to create a journey for the audience to follow, alongside trailblazing scientist Dr. Patricia Wright on her lifelong mission to help these bizarre yet adorable creatures survive in the modern world.
This 3D IMAX film will have the lemurs jumping off the screen and into your hearts. It is now showing at the Tennessee Aquarium’s IMAX 3D theater in downtown Chattanooga. Showtimes are daily at noon, 2 and 4 p.m. Additional showtimes are Friday and Saturday at 6 p.m.
