MARCH OF THE PENGUINS

In the harshest place on Earth, love finds a way! Experience a journey like no other on the planet. Emperor penguins in the thousands brave icy winds, freezing temperatures, and starvation in this incredible true story of the penguin life cycle. They are birds, but do not fly. They are aquatic animals, but they are not swimming -- they're marching! Every year they march day and night into the driest, coldest continent on Earth. Driven by the over-powering urge to reproduce, the penguins travel in single file hundreds of miles, crisscrossing Antarctica under the harshest conditions on Earth. Breathtaking photography captures the transcendent beauty and staggering drama of devoted parent penguins taking turns guarding their egg and trekking to the ocean in search of food where predators hunt them and storms lash them. Their amazing journey is documented in this heartwarming film. It's a story of family and the power of love.

Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street
