Press Release Date 
Tuesday, 22 March, 2011
Join IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures on a miraculous journey of second chances when Born to be Wild opens April 8 in The Hackworth IMAX Dome Theater at The Tech Museum. Follow young orphaned elephants and orangutans on the trip of a lifetime, from birth to rebirth, on the vivid screen of the nation’s second largest dome theater. This family friendly documentary transports moviegoers to the far stretches of Kenya and Borneo and inspires them to take action to save Earth's precious creatures. Narrated by Academy-Award winner Morgan Freeman, Born to be Wild is an inspiring story of love, dedication and the remarkable bond between humans and animals. Stunningly captured in The Hackworth IMAX Dome Theater - with its crystal clear images up to eight stories high and 13,000 watts of wrap-around digital surround sound - Born to be Wild is a heartwarming adventure that takes moviegoers into the lush rainforests of Borneo with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas, and across the rugged Kenyan savannah with celebrated elephant authority Dame Daphne M. Sheldrick. "Spending so much time among the orphaned elephants and orangutans in this film was a life - changing experience," said Producer/Writer Drew Fellman. "And IMAX makes it possible to share that wonder with the audience in a very profound way that takes us directly into the lives and struggles of these amazing animals."
