Imagination Theater

  • Watermelon Magic


  • Showtimes: Thursday, Friday & Saturday
    10:30 am & 1:30 pm

    Watermelon Magic is like no other film. It’s a sweet combination of story and science and the first big screen film devoted one of our most basic human needs: healthy food. International audiences will delight in this nearly wordless burst of color and music. Weaving together documentary and narrative elements, Watermelon Magic chronicles a season on the family farm, as young Sylvie grows a patch of watermelons to sell at market. How will she let her babies go?

  • MicroPlanet


  • Showtimes: Thursday, Friday & Saturday
    Noon & 3 pm

    Stunning macro filmmaking takes viewers on an unforgettable journey from lake bottom battles for territory to lovelorn toads searching for a mate to lizards prowling the forest for a meal. We humans are but lumbering, clumsy giants striding through these miniature ecosystems that thrive without us... even in spite of us.
