‘Titans of the Ice Age’ Come Alive at Faulkner Planetarium
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – The little kid in you will come out once you visit the Faulkner Planetarium starting Sept. 6 on the College of Southern Idaho campus.
That’s when “Titans of the Giants,” a new film about Earth’s earlier inhabitants, will premiere at the planetarium. You might very well feel like a kid again as you watch the computer-generated graphics of the woolly mammoth and other ice age giants come alive on the screen.
The film “will transport you to the beautiful and frozen landscapes in a time period five thousand years before civilization,” reads information from the college. “Learn the causes of ice ages and experience the kingdom of the titans as they come to life again on the Faulkner dome.”
Planetarium Manager Rick Greenawald said in the prepared statement: “The incredible computer graphic rendering of these extinct species is really something to behold. These are creatures that roamed the very place where we now live. Mammoth bones have been uncovered right here in southern Idaho, so this film offers the residents of our area a chance to look into the actual history of our region."
“Titans of the Ice Age” will run at 7 p.m. Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and at 3:30 p.m. Saturdays starting Sept. 6. Admission prices to planetarium shows are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $4 for students, including CSI students with a valid student ID; children under age 2 are admitted free.
