Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano was joined by Mark Katz, President of National Geographic Cinema Ventures, and Andrew Parton, Executive Director of Cradle of Aviation Museum to announce the partnership that will bring popular National Geographic films alive on the museum’s big screen.
“This public private partnership between National Geographic and the Cradle of Aviation’s will allow us to offer new opportunities for school children and visitors,” Mangano said. “We look forward to National Geographic sharing their films with our residents and expanding this great family entertainment destination here in Nassau County.”
The Cradle of Aviation Museum will become one of only seven museums in the country to have a partnership with the National Geographic Society. Along with the ability to show National Geographic’s vast collection of films, the partnership also provides visitors access to special exhibits and speakers.
Some of the captivating films offered by National Geographic include “March of the Penguins” and the new IMAX film “Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure.” Nassau County residents will now be able to experience these thrilling films and become immersed in the adventures in the museum’s giant-screen Dome Theater.
The partnership not only offers valuable educational resources to students, but also creates a new opportunity for families to spend time together while learning about the planet and enjoying the various exhibits offered by the Cradle of Aviation.
