It’s a natural history epic. It’s a compelling detective story. It’s a scientific adventure at its best. It took Dr. Fred Urquhart almost 40 years to discover the monarch butterflies’ secret hideaway and prove the most incredible migration on Earth. Following the year-long annual migration cycle of the butterflies, the award-winning production team filmed hundreds of millions of monarchs in their remote overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico in 2011 and again in 2012 and also along their migratory routes from Canada, across the U.S. and into Mexico. Be immersed in the astounding migration experience as two generations of the butterflies migrate north and then a Super Generation miraculously finds its way from Canada to a few isolated mountaintops in Mexico – to a place it has never been!

2pm en Espanol at Reel Mountain Theater:

Basada en una historia real, "El Vuelo de las Monarcas" muestra la determinación y perseveración del Dr. Fred Urquhart, quien pasó 40 años de su vida investigando el misterioso lugar hacia donde se dirigían las mariposas monarca cada invierno. Al mismo tiempo, y gracias a la tecnología inmersiva de la tercera dimensión, los visitantes conocerán la historia de Dana, una intrépida mariposa monarca que vive constantes amenazas a lo largo de su migración desde Canadá, hasta los bosques mexicanos. El Dr. Urquhart y su esposa Norah enfrentaron muchos desafíos para cumplir su sueño y conocer el destino de estos insectos; pasaron años probando diversas maneras de etiquetar mariposas y rastrear sus recorridos. Contaron con el apoyo de 3 mil "ciudadanos científicos" que buscaron durante décadas mariposas a lo largo de Norteamérica.
