TWIN FALLS — The Faulkner Planetarium is featuring a new show, “Dinosaurs at Dusk: the Origins of Flight.”
In the movie, viewers will journey 250 million years back to the Mesozoic Era with Lucy, where she and her father explore the rise of feathered dinosaurs and pterosaurs, the largest creatures ever to take wing. Traveling from continent to continent and through the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods, the pair race across 165 million years to discover the origins of flight.
“We are very pleased to be able to bring this program to the residents of south-central Idaho. This fast-paced romp will appeal to everyone from young dinosaur-crazy kids to their parents and those with a general interest in dinosaurs. It is a family friendly program,” Planetarium Manager Rick Greenawald said in a statement.
