Detroit Science Center IMAX: From the deep northern waters of Lake Superior to the eastern edges of Lake Ontario, Mysteries of the Great Lakes takes the viewer on a spin through some of most beautiful shorelines and scenery the nation offers.
• In Deep Sea, you’ll get a glimpse into some of the world’s most unique, dangerous, and colorful creatures, and their habitats. • Animalopolis is a journey into a more lighthearted, dancing, somersaulting, fanciful animal kingdom than the one that exists in reality. But that’s OK, because this IMAX film is fun for the whole family. The film will show you a variety of animals that include cheetahs, bears, crabs, and lions with no threat of getting maimed. All through May. $7.25-$12.95. 5020 John R, Detroit; 313-577-8400; detroitsciencecenter.org
