New Martinis & IMAX(r) Season at Fernbank Museum

After the annual December break, Martinis & IMAX® is back on Friday nights at Fernbank Museum of Natural History. The 2011 season promises good times, lively music, fantastic films, delicious food, and refreshing cocktails—all beneath the world’s largest dinosaurs. Martinis & IMAX® is held every Friday through November from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. and features a special Salsa Night on the third Friday of each month.

Atlanta’s original destination for cultural nightlife, Martinis & IMAX® will feature Journey into Amazing Caves at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., Greece: Secrets of the Past at 8 p.m., and The Greatest Places at 10 p.m. on the five-story IMAX® screen through March 17, 2011. Fernbank will have a new film schedule in the spring.

One of the most popular nights for Martinis & IMAX® is offered in February when Fernbank features a special Valentine edition of Martinis & IMAX®. This year’s Valentine’s Celebration will take place on Friday, February 11 and will offer an all-inclusive package with two film tickets, a dessert, a bottle of wine, and more for only $45. Individual Martinis & IMAX® tickets are also available, which include one film ticket (no food or drink included), for $12 each.

Salsa Nights turn up the heat on the third Friday of each month with live Salsa dancing and great Latin tunes. Salsambo Dance Studio offers free dance lessons during the evening when they aren’t entertaining everyone with their electrifying moves on the dance floor.

Every Friday night of Martinis & IMAX® is different in its own way, but it’s always consistent with great films, atmosphere, music, cuisine, people, drinks (including our famous martinis), and fun. Don’t miss the opportunity to see the exhibition Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids during Martinis & IMAX with special extended exhibition hours on Friday nights through March. The exhibition, which opens February 19, reveals how living and prehistoric animals inspired dragons, unicorns, mermaids, and more while exploring how cultures throughout time have created mythic creatures to explain the natural world.

Martinis & IMAX tickets include admission to one IMAX® film and are $12 per person (only $8 for Members). There is a $7 cover charge for those not purchasing either and IMAX® ticket or Mythic Creatures ticket. (The cover charge does not apply to Museum Members.) Mythic Creatures admission is not included in standard Martinis & IMAX® admission but those ticket prices will be announced soon.
