New IMAX® 3D Theatre Documentary Brings Audiences into the Heart of Wild Africa
Kenya 3D: Animal Kingdom Roars into
Entergy IMAX® Theatre
Friday, May 30, 2014

 

(New Orleans, La.) - Entergy IMAX® Theatre and 3D Entertainment Distribution invite audiences on an epic journey into the most spectacular wildlife sanctuary on Earth in the new IMAX® 3D theatre film Kenya 3D: Animal Kingdom, which opens at Entergy IMAX® Theatre on Friday, May 30, 2014. 

"Our primary goal with this film was to bring audiences into the heart of Africa to discover the exceptional diversity of the local wildlife in 3D as never before seen on the stunning IMAX® screen," said director Jean-Jacques Mantello.

Viewers will come face-to-face with the region's famous fauna in their natural habitat, including the Big Five - lions, elephants, Cape buffalo, leopards and black rhinos - as well as giraffe, hippos and cheetahs, among many others.

"Most documentary films focus on a single species and include scenes of people filming the animals from a jeep or scientists studying them. With Kenya 3D, we illustrate the incredible natural richness of this magnificent animal kingdom and allow viewers to see the fauna exactly as locals see it," Mantello explained.

Two years in the making and with a budget of USD 3.5 million, the Film was shot entirely on location at the Masai Mara National Reserve, Samburu National Reserve, Amboseli National Park, Loita Hills, Lake Bogoria National Reserve and Solio Game Reserve (Kenya).

The following film schedule will run from May 30th through August 21st:
