After cats and dogs, which cute animal rules the Internet? We're willing to bet on pandas, especially the wee, roly-poly bamboo-gobbling denizens of China's Wolong Conservation and Research Center in Sichuan Province, where young pandas are raised and prepared for release into the wild.
There's nothing cuter than baby pandas, which means that Pandas: The Journey Home, the new IMAX flick from National Geographic, is a slam-dunk for the Denver Museum of Nature & Science's Phipps IMAX 3-D Theater, where it debuted over the weekend for a run at least into October. The larger-than-life movie follows little captive-born panda Tao Tao and friends through wild-animal boot camp, where they are schooled for the day they'll be set free to fend for themselves.
Catch the scientific romp daily at the museum, 2001 Colorado Boulevard; also just opened are Island of Lemurs: Madagascar 3-D and D-Day Normandy: 1944 3-D, if you want to make a day of staring at the theater's three-and-a-half-story screen. For showtimes and tickets, $6 to $10 for the film only (museum packages are also available), visit dmns.org or call 303-370-6000.
