Visitors have a limited time left to see “Dolphins” at the Science Museum Oklahoma Dome Theater before the film closes to the public Aug. 28.

Narrated by Pierce Brosnan and featuring the music of the Grammy-award winning artist Sting, “Dolphins” was nominated for a 2000 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject.

From the dazzling coral reefs of the Bahamas to the windswept seas of Patagonia, “Dolphins” takes audiences under the water’s surface for a romp with inquisitive Atlantic spotted dolphins, acrobatic dusky dolphins and the familiar bottlenose dolphin of “Flipper” fame.

“The topic has a wonderful appeal to the public; people want to know more about how dolphins communicate,” said Suzette Ellison, museum vice president of interpretation.

“Everybody in Western societies admires dolphins. But few people really know very much about these intelligent, social mammals that play out their lives in a marvelously complex three-dimensional world. We hope this film can help energize a new generation of Oklahomans to want to learn more.”

“Dolphins” shows daily through Aug. 28 at the Science Museum Oklahoma Dome Theater, 2100 NE 52. Admission is $8.95 for adults and $6.95 for children ages 3 to 12 and seniors older than 65. Admission to “Dolphins” is not included in museum general admission ticket prices.
