Dinosaurs at Dusk

the origins of flight

“Dinosaurs at Dusk”, a whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the Dinosaurs.

Propel yourself back through time to explore an Earth teeming with Pterosaurs and ancestors of modern-day birds: the feathered Dinosaurs!

Lucy and her father fly through the Triassic, Jurassic and Creteceous to soar with Quetzalcoatlus, escape from raptors and ride behind Argentinosaurus while searching for clues to the origins of flight. When time runs out they experience first-hand the cataclysmis “last day” of the dinosaurs.

The combination of all that activity with those gorgeous fulldome vistas make this the most kinetic planetarium film ever produced.

“Dinosaurs at Dusk is a wonderful mix of paleontology, geology and astronomy. The central theme is a trip through time, exploring the origins of flight with innovative restorations of the key pterosaurs, non-avian and avian dinosaurs in the context of an evolving Earth. Its real strength lies in the integration of interesting facts from various fields that ultimately lead to introspection on evolution, extinction and our place in the cosmos. Natural history at its best!” – John Zawiskie Curator of Earth and Life Sciences Cranbrook Institute of Science
