IMAX Into the Deep - posted from El Dorado Hills, CA

This is a link to the San Diego History Museum's page on the IMAX Into the Deep film, which provides the following synopsis along with an option to purchase it through them. "Filmed off the coast of Southern California, this fascinating film journeys to an enchanting underwater world of swaying kelp forests and glowing corals. Swim nose to nose with colorful garibaldi, starfish and sharks, play tag with sea lions, and observe the rarely-seen behavior of the creatures of the eternal undersea night." You can also take a look at The San Diego Natural History Museum link, though, has a double benefit in that you can browse their other tabs to support your child's ocean unit.
