Opened in October at the California Science Center, Amazon Adventure 3D, will let you experience the heart of the Amazon rainforest and trace the extraordinary journey of naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates – the most influential scientist you’ ve ever heard of.

The film follows Bates, who provided “the beautiful proof” to Charles Darwin for his then controversial theory of natural selection, the scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth, and risked his life for science during his 11-year expedition into the Amazon rainforest. Amazon Adventure 3D is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance and, ultimately, success, drawing audiences into the fascinating world of animal mimicry, the astonishing phenomenon where one animal adopts the look of another, gaining an advantage to survive.

Filmed on location in the lush Amazon region, Amazon Adventure 3D uses the immersive IMAX format to plunge audiences into a wild world of beauty and captivating animal behavior. Things are not always as they seem in the jungle, and audiences will be mesmerized by an array of nature’s masters of mimicry.
