Big Green Screen Newsletter - April

New Film Coming Soon - Turtle Odyssey

Sea Turtles are some of Earth’s most ancient and majestic creatures. For over 100 million years, they have traversed the seas, surviving multiple mass extinctions and playing critical roles in maintaining healthy, marine food webs. Not only do these friendly animals captivate us as they peacefully glide through the ocean, but their personal journeys of survival are equally fascinating. Special thank you to our sponsors WQLN and the Regional Science Consortium!

11AM & 2PM Daily Starting April 27th.
Special free showings opening day only with Spring Live!

Big Green Screen Newsletter - August

 

What’s In A Name? Why Is The Big Screen ‘Green?’

While you may have noticed our theater screen is not literally green, being ‘green’ is an important part of our organization's environmentally-friendly philosophy. Here are some of the things that make us the Big GREEN Screen.

GroupWebsite (1 of 2).jpg

The Big Green Screen Theatre is housed in the Tom Ridge Environmental Center, a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver designated building by the U.S. Green Building Council. Some of the features of the TREC include a permeable parking lot with native plant landscaping, low-flow toilets and bathroom sinks, and recycled material was used in construction when available. The TREC recently received the addition of a 10kW solar panel array and LED lighting fixtures in the observation tower and classrooms to reduce energy consumption.

The Big Green Screen also takes specific steps to reduce waste at our concession stand. We recently began using American made Aardvark paper straws instead of plastic straws, and our drink cups and lids are also American made 100% compostable plant-based bioplastics from Greenware.

The TREC and our new concession options allow us to fulfill our mission to provide public education and enrichment through educational programs and community outreach in an environmentally responsible manner.

 

New Movie Coming Soon: Backyard Wilderness


COMING SOON

Backyard Wilderness will surprise and entertain viewers with the unexpected wonders of nature that are right under our noses - in our own backyards. Spanning a seasonal year around a suburban home, the film displays a stunning array of unique wildlife images and behaviour - all captured by cameras mounted inside dens and nests, and moving along the forest floor and pond bottom, to reveal its inhabitants in rare and breathtaking intimacy.
