No one will argue that being a young parent is tough. Being a young penguin father, though, is a different animal altogether. Noted British voice-of-nature David Attenborough lends his considerable reputation to our fine tuxedoed friends in this documentary, which screens every hour at the museum’s LeFrak IMAX Theater. Sir David will take viewers to Penguin City on the remote island of South Georgia, which is home to around 6 million penguins in search of some serious breeding. The film follows one particular king penguin as he lives, learns and loves (it’s essentially an Elizabeth Gilbert story for large flightless birds). Along the way, he must battle vicious predators, inhospitable weather conditions and—from the looks of the trailer—flatulent seals.
