Dino Dana The Movie, produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment, will premiere at the Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, next month.
Along with the premiere, guests will also be able to visit the museum’s new Dino Dana exhibit and enjoy a dino augmented reality (AR) experience as part of the MODS Discovery Pass. The film will be released on May 22, with official red carpet premieres at MODS on Saturday, June 5, and Sunday, June 6.
A 45-minute family-friendly film, Dino Dana The Movie centers on 10-year-old Dana, who sees dinosaurs in the real world, completing an experiment that asks where all the kid dinosaurs are. Dana, her older sister Saara and their new neighbors Mateo and Jadiel go on a dinosaur journey to uncover the answer.
MODS has partnered with Sinking Ship Entertainment to bring Dino Dana’s adventures to life at the museum with the film on the giant screen, as well as a Paleontologist in Training Live Show and the creation of an exhibit. To make the Dino Dana The Movie experience even more immersive, Safari Ltd. is introducing new educational dinosaur toys that include innovative and interactive elements for young, aspiring paleontologists to learn through play.
Joseph P. Cox, president and CEO of MODS, said: “Fascination with prehistoric life never goes extinct, and MODS is excited to partner with Sinking Ship Entertainment and Safari Ltd. for the official U.S. launch of Dino Dana The Movie in South Florida. Dino Dana The Movie is a fun and adventurous exhibit and film powered by fierce heroine paleontologist Dana, her friends and the augmented reality dinosaurs they encounter along the way.
“Exposure to science truly helps children link the wonders of the past to today’s environmental challenges using modern STEM applications. Families will flock to see dinosaurs in action through the latest technology at MODS,” Cox continued.
Jennifer Lee Hackett, manager of museum and non-theatrical sales for Sinking Ship Entertainment, said: “Sinking Ship Entertainment is thrilled to be partnering with the Museum of Discovery and Science. Not only did MODS share our vision for the museum launch for Dino Dana The Movie, but they also enhanced the plan with their own creative touches. With the addition of our presenting sponsor, Safari Ltd., we are looking forward to launching this fun and educational experience at MODS and exploring options for the exhibition to tour other museums and science centers worldwide.”
Alexandre Pariente, CEO and owner Safari Ltd., said: “Children connect with the importance of nature and conservation through the joy of hands-on discovery. This meaningful partnership with MODS and Sinking Ship will help foster imaginative play while inspiring children to love the environment through our educational toys.”
