New 3D Film: Great White Shark

News posts

Sightings of great white sharks have been reported at the Museum!

In the Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Theater, the new large-format film Great White Shark is now playing in 3D digital and 2D.

Great White Film

The film connects audiences to the life and habits of the iconic predator at the top of the oceanic food chain.

While feared and often vilified, the great white is actually misrepresented, misunderstood, and is vulnerable to extinction. The film explores the plight of sharks around the world and the fate of sharks at the hands of the planet’s greatest predator of all: humans.

Travel to great white hotspots around the world, including the crystal-clear waters of Mexico’s legendary Guadalupe Island; newly discovered shark territory around Stewart Island off the southernmost tip of New Zealand; the bone-chilling waters of South Africa’s “flying” great whites; and the California coast near Los Angeles to see these magnificent creatures in their environment.
