Junior Council: A Private Screening of Penguins at American Museum of Natural History
This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.
The Junior Council kicks off its 2013-2014 season with a private screening of the giant-screen film Penguins and a cocktail reception. 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.
All Junior Council events include special viewings of Museum exhibitions or films, a discussion by Museum scientists, and a cocktail reception.
Tickets to each event are $100 in advance or $125 at the door.
