The Lefrak Theater at the American Museum of Natural reopened on March 10th, at limited capacity, as part of New York’s movie theater reopening this month. On its 40-foot-high, 66-foot-wide screen, with a state-of-the-art digital sound system, it is showing Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation, which follows “intrepid explorer Carsten Peter on an adrenaline-filled trip across the globe, from Hawaii’s Kilauea eruption to the archaeological ghost town of Pompeii,” a release says.
“Dodge boulders at the edge of an active volcano in Indonesia, descend to a lava lake in Vanuatu, and visit the incredible mineral deposit fields in Ethiopia to explore molten worlds and find out how volcanoes have helped to create the world we know.” Length: 40 minutes
The reopening of the Samuel J. And Ethel Lefrak Theater follows health and safety protocols, including cleaning between showtimes. Timed-entry tickets must be reserved in advance at www.amnh.org. Tickets start at $28 for adults, $16.50 for children, and $22.50 for seniors and students.
Showtimes are: (2D) Wednesday-Sunday, at 10:15 am, 11:30 am, 12:45 pm, 2 pm, 3:15 pm, and 4:30 pm.
