Recently, I had the privilege to preview the IMAX film Born to Be Wild at the Indiana State Museum in White River State Park. I had such a great time and really enjoyed this film in IMAX version. If your child is old enough to sit through a regular movie at the theatre and able to keep the 3D glasses on, I believe they are old enough to see Born to be Wild!

Born to be Wild documents two women through the process of rescuing orphaned orangutans and elephants, nurturing them, preparing them for life as a mature animal in the wild and finally releasing the endangered animals into the world they belong.

Before seeing this film, my favorite IMAX film was the Grand Canyon movie that I saw when I was a child and again 2 years ago when my friends and I hiked the canyon over a three day period.

Born to be Wild has taken that place card in my memory. The turning point for me was when there was dust flying through the air in the movie and I found myself raising my hand to wave it from my face and blowing air from my lips to keep it from my mouth. Talk about a movie that really puts you right into the moment!

This 40 minute feature, narrated by Morgan Freeman, is playing exclusively at the IMAX theatre at the State Museum (650 West Washington Street). Please take the opportunity to transport your children to places in the world that they’ve only read about! Tickets are $9.50 for adults and $6 for children.

Also playing at the State Museum IMAX, SeaRex.
