Penguins, a new giant-screen adventure following a very special King Penguin as he returns to his birthplace in the sub-Antarctic. Produced by award-winning Atlantic Productions and distributed by nWave Pictures Distribution, the film is narrated by world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough.
Penguin City, on the remote island of South Georgia in the southern Atlantic Ocean, is home to hundreds of albatrosses, fur seals, and brawling elephant seals, as well as 6 million penguins. The young male King Penguin at the center of Penguins must earn his place among the island inhabitants while finding a mate and raising a family. The film follows him through the most challenging time in a King Penguin’s life, when he is driven to nurture and defend his offspring against harsh weather and fierce predators. The cosmic drama plays out in one of Earth’s last great wildernesses, amid steep mountain ranges and windblown plains half buried beneath snow and ice.
Penguins will be shown daily in the Museum’s Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Theater, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm (hourly). To purchase tickets in advance, please call 212-769-5200 or visit amnh.org. A service charge may apply.
