Dinosaurs: A Story of Survival


TWIN FALLS, IDAHO: What could be more fun than exploring the world of the dinosaurs? If you have elementary school age kids, you probably know how dinosaur-obsessed they can be. Who wouldn’t want to roam amongst the giant lizards of long, long, ago?  Parents, grandparents, and kids of all ages can do just that starting Saturday, October 1, in a brand-new dinosaur adventure at the Faulkner Planetarium. Dinosaurs: A Story of Survival will transport audiences through the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods to explore the ever-changing world of the largest land creatures that ever lived. Discover how new species arose while others went extinct across 165 million years, until they all met their end. Or did they? Could dinosaurs still be among us today?

Dinosaurs: A Story of Survival is a production of Spain’s RenderArea, makers of Beyond the Sun: In Search of a New Earth (shown at the planetarium from time to time.)  Dinosaurs brings back the lead characters, Celeste (a precocious little girl) and Moon (Celeste’s ethereal and knowledgeable friend). Planetarium Manager Rick Greenawald describes Dinosaurs as “a fantastic production featuring characters that are familiar and engaging. Celeste and Moon lead the audience on a learning adventure that is not only educational, but also delightful and entertaining. Kids are going to love this show!”

Dinosaurs: A Story of Survival opens Saturday, October 1 with four showings per week: Tuesdays at 7:00 PM, and Saturdays at 1:30, 3:30, and 6:00 PM. Admission to planetarium shows is $6.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors (60+), and $4.00 for children (2–17) and CSI students with a valid student ID. Children under age 2 are admitted free.

Located in the Herrett Center for Arts and Science on the College of Southern Idaho campus in Twin Falls, ID, the Faulkner Planetarium is a world-class facility and the largest planetarium in the state.
