Planetarium Show

220 million years ago, dinosaurs were beginning their domination of Earth. But another group of reptiles was about to make an extraordinary leap: pterosaurs were taking control of the skies. The story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastic than fiction.

In Flying Monsters, the world's leading naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, sets out to uncover the truth about the enigmatic pterosaurs, whose wingspans of up to 40 feet were equal to that of a modern-day jet plane.

Restricted to ages 3 and up. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
