What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Island of Lemurs: Madagascar is a 40-minute IMAX film about the unique biodiversity of the island of Madagascar, particularly the lemurs.

Despite the brevity of the documentary, audiences of all ages will learn a great deal about lemurs and their importance to Madagascar and the world. This is a great family-friendly nature film to see while at a museum or any theater with an IMAX screen.
