Who doesn’t love pandas? I mean, even the Communist Party leaders over in China love pandas. Starting this Friday, Aug. 29, the Lockheed Martin DynaTheater at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science (1801 Mountain NW) will feed your own personal fuzzy love with “Pandas: The Journey Home.” This 3D, large-format documentary was produced for National Geographic and was made in conjunction with the Chinese Wildlife Conservation Association. Narrated by actress Joely Richardson, this 40-minute film follows the pandas at a significant milestone in their history. After decades of captive breeding, the Wolong National Nature Reserve has its largest number of giant pandas. “Pandas: The Journey Home” follows naturalists and biologists as they attempt to reintroduce breeding populations of the species into the wild. Yes, there will be baby pandas! The film will screen daily at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 4pm. Cost is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $6 for children.
