New Year, New Reasons for Cinema, Savoring and Sophistication at Fernbank’s Martinis & IMAX®

It was a long December without Atlanta’s perfect mix of culture and cocktails, but Martinis & IMAX® is back in action Friday, January 8, 2010 with a new event time and a new, hipper attitude.

Beginning Friday, January 8, the experience of “IMAX® After Dark” will be offered every Friday from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.—starting an hour later and ending an hour later. Also new in 2010, Fernbank has revved up the musical entertainment by providing both live music and a DJ to keep the beats flowing.

When it comes to movies, size does matter. So don’t forget to make IMAX® part of your evening and catch a flick on the biggest screen in town—Fernbank’s five-story silver screen. January Martinis & IMAX® films are Wild Ocean and a special double feature of Van Gogh: Brush with Genius and Academy Award-winning animation from The Old Man and the Sea.

Wild Ocean shows at 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. through March 26, 2010. The film plunges audiences into an underwater feeding frenzy off the coast of South Africa to witness an epic struggle for survival. Whales, sharks, dolphins, seals, gannets and billions of fish collide during one of nature’s greatest migration spectacles.

Van Gogh: Brush with Genius and The Old Man and the Sea combine for a special double-feature with shows at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. through March 31, 2010. Audiences will see some of the greatest works of art come to life on the big screen in Van Gogh. Then, they’ll experience Hemmingway’s classic story told through stunning animation of the Academy Award®‐winning film The Old Man and the Sea.

As always, cocktails and specialty martinis from the full, cash bar help quench your thirst after grooving on the dance floor or savoring the delicious cuisine of the Fernbank Café.

Martinis & IMAX® admission is included with the purchase of an IMAX® film ticket or is available with a $7 cover charge. IMAX tickets for Martinis & IMAX presentations are specially priced for a limited time only at $12—a $3 savings. Museum Members never pay a cover charge and pay only $7 for a Martinis & IMAX® film ticket.
