Mangano Announces Movie Discount For Family-Fun Week At Museum Row

Cradle of Aviation Offers $5 February Fest

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced the County and the Cradle of Aviation Museum will host “$5 February Fest” from Monday, February 20th through Friday, February 24th. During “$5 February Fest,” movie tickets for any film and any showing at the Cradle of Aviation’s IMAX Giant Screen Dome Theater will only be $5 for children ages 2-12. The movies showing that week will be: Tornado Alley, Sharks, and Lewis and Clark.

“At a time when children are off from school for the week, this $5 February Fest opportunity provides families a wonderful opportunity to enjoy educational films at an affordable price,” said County Executive Mangano. “This Cradle of Aviation movie discount provides residents with five affordable family-fun days at Museum Row.”

Tornado Alley:

Traversing the “severe weather capital of the world,” Tornado Alley documents two unprecedented missions seeking to encounter one of Earth's most awe-inspiring events – the birth of a tornado. Filmmaker Sean Casey's personal quest to capture the birth of a tornado with a 70mm camera takes viewers on a breathtaking journey into the heart of the storm. A team of equally driven scientists, the VORTEX2 researchers, experience the relentless strength of nature's elemental forces as they literally surround tornadoes and the super cell storms that form them, gathering the most comprehensive severe weather data ever collected. This science adventure reveals the beauty and the power of some of our planet's most extreme -- and least understood -- weather phenomena.


Presented by Jean-Michel Cousteau, Sharks is a breathtaking new IMAX theatre film experience that offers audiences an astonishing up-close encounter with the Lions and Tigers of the Ocean. Come face-to-face with a multitude of shark species, including the Great White, Hammerhead, and Whale Shark. Witness them as they really are: not wicked man-eating creatures, but wild, fascinating and endangered animals that have been in existence since a million years before dinosaurs roamed the earth. Join the expert team of ocean explorers that brought you Ocean Wonderland and Dolphins & Whales on this unique round-the-globe expedition documenting the life of the ultimate predator.

Lewis and Clark:

With careful research and meticulous recreations, National Geographic Films brings the amazing story of adventure, danger and the exploration of the unmapped West to the large screen in Lewis & Clark: Great Journey West. Narrated by Jeff Bridges.

The Leroy R. & Rose W. Grumman Giant Screen Dome Theater at the Cradle of Aviation Museum provides a unique experience of motion, sound and sight. The theater is specially designed to give everyone the best seat in the house, and bring you films that take you to places you've only dreamt of going. The box office can be reached during show times at: (516) 572-4012. The Leroy R. & Rose W. Grumman Giant Screen Dome Theater is located on Charles Lindbergh Boulevard in Garden City.
