Thanksgiving Point Announces Theater Venture with National Geographic

Press Release

June 6, 2012

Thanksgiving Point and National Geographic Cinema Ventures (NGCV) are delighted to announce an agreement to make Thanksgiving Point’s Mammoth Screen Theatre, hosted at the Museum of Ancient Life, Utah’s first National Geographic Experience Theater, beginning in June.

The new multi-year agreement makes the Mammoth Screen Theatre the first theater in Utah, and one of the first of many in the United States, with the National Geographic Theater branding distinction. As part of the agreement, National Geographic will supply multiple films each year for viewing at the Mammoth Screen Theatre, as well as provide marketing support for the theater.

“National Geographic visited our Museum and put their stamp of approval on the quality of experience our guests receive at the Mammoth Screen Theatre,” said Gary Hyatt, director of the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point. “This agreement allows us to let the public know that our Mammoth Screen shows are official National Geographic quality experiences.”

Mark Katz, president of distribution for NGCV, noted that “Thanksgiving Point’s enthusiasm and commitment to experiential learning embodies all of the qualities we look for in a branding licensee and exhibitor, so we are thrilled to be working with them on this new venture. We look forward to sharing our slate of upcoming films as well as some of our classic library titles with the patrons of Thanksgiving Point, which is a great destination venue for the region as well as for the State of Utah.”

National Geographic films currently screening at Thanksgiving Point include “Flying Monsters 3D” and “Meerkats 3D.” Upcoming titles include “Invisible Worlds,” a film that will showcase the new technologies – such as nanotechnology - that actually make the invisible visible in the world around us, and James Cameron’s DEEPSEA CHALLENGE film, a chronicle of the filmmaker’s ocean exploration adventures that culminated in his historic and record-breaking dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

The Mammoth Screen Theatre, a National Geographic Experience, is located in the Museum of Ancient Life. Tickets are $7.50 for adults and $5.50 for children (ages 3-12) and seniors.  Various movie times are available during the Museum’s open hours Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. For more information on movie times, visit www.thanksgivingpoint.org.
