MILWAUKEE, June 5, 2013 – “Flight of the Butterflies in 3D,” a NatGeo film, is now showing at the Milwaukee Public Museum. The movie is presented by Assurant Health. |
The IMAX film captures the beauty of hundreds of millions of monarchs during their annual migration and follows Dana the monarch on her perilous journey from Mexico to Canada, along with her daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughter.
This adventure also features Fred Urquhart, the determined scientist who spent 40 years trying to discover exactly where the butterflies mysteriously disappeared when they flew south for winter. Along with his wife, Norah, he founded the Insect Migration Association, enlisting thousands of volunteers across North America to tag hundreds of thousands of butterflies to track their migration route. This association ultimately helped Urquhart discover, in 1975, that millions of butterflies migrated to the remote Transvolcanic Belt of central Mexico.
Tickets range from $6 to $8. The film will run though Oct. 31, 2013, at the museum, 800 West Wells St.
