    Set in the frozen wilderness at the top of the world

    Wonders of the Arctic tells the story of one of the most unforgiving environments on Earth, dominated by ice.

    Enter a glittering world of ice and snow, where polar bears tussle, huskies howl and narwhals dive through turquoise waters.
    In this wilderness at the top of the world, tiny flowers blossom in the brief but brilliant summer, and whales breach in an iceberg-studded ocean.

    In this era of warming temperatures and melting ice, will plants and animals adapt or perish?
    Follow scientists and Inuit elders as they explore the changing landscape of this harsh and beautiful frontier.

    NOW PLAYING: Aircraft Carrier 3D

    Watch the Trailer


    The mission to protect and defend the world's oceans has become far more complex and challenging in recent years, and naval aviation has become increasingly vital to success.   

    One of the greatest engineering feats in the history of warfare, the modern Nimitz-class carrier is a masterpiece of technology, and the flagship of the fleet.  

    With RIMPAC, the world’s largest and most comprehensive international maritime training exercise providing a stunning visual context for the story, find yourself aboard the USS Ronald Reagan alongside the 5,000 highly skilled sea and air personnel conducting flight operations in the midst of the simulated war exercises taking place there.

    Now Playing: Great White Shark 3D

    Watch the Trailer

     Three years in the making, Great White Shark 3D takes viewers around the world on an incredible 3D journey: 

    • swim the crystal clear waters of Mexico’s legendary Guadalupe Island
    • see newly-discovered shark territory around Stewart Island, off the southernmost tip of New Zealand
    • dive into the bone-chilling waters with South Africa’s 'flying' Great Whites
    • and cruise the California coast near heavily-populated Los Angeles. 

    The film examines what we've recently learned about these incredible animals, through the eyes of people whose lives have become inextricably linked to the Great White. Narrated by Bill Nighy.

    Parental supervision for younger viewers advised.

    MUST SEE AFTER THE MOVIE: Legendary shark cinematographer Valerie Taylor's stainless steel mesh suit - on the ground floor, just near the Members' Lounge.
