Free Family Movie at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum
BISMARCK – The public is invited to a free family film “WALL-E” on Sept. 24 at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. Show times are 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the Russell Reid Auditorium. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. This movie is rated G.
In the movie, the year is 2700 and WALL-E is a robot still spending every day doing what he was made for. Soon he is visited by a sleek robot named EVE whom he chases across the galaxy. The movie, which encourages viewers to take notice of how their actions may affect the earth’s environment, is an activity related to the “Green Revolution” exhibition open at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum.
"Green Revolution" is an eco-friendly exhibit with a minimal carbon footprint. It addresses critical issues concerning the future health of our planet. Through hands-on activities and historic objects, visitors will gain awareness of sustainability and learn simple ways to help protect our air, water, soil, and environment. This version of “Green Revolution” is based on an exhibition originally created by the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, and its Black Creativity Council and made available by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. The State Historical Society of North Dakota has enhanced the exhibit with examples of North Dakota sustainability such as clothing made from flour sacks.
