MArch of the Penguins

After taking the grand tour of Arlington searching for a tiny one block square upscale restaurant, boutique & theater area, we finally found it after realizing the stub of a road where it was had been lost in the no man's land between map pages. Of course, the showtime we wanted was sold out, so we had three hours for dinner & browsing before the movie.

March of the Penguins was incredible. Gorgeous cinematography. Listening to Morgan Freeman for nearly two hours isn't half bad either. There was more audience participation than even that old saw Rocky Horror Picture Show. Laughter. Tears. 'Oh no, watch out!' moments.
The baby penguin mosh pit would've been hilarious if the situation hadn't been so serious. Penguins fly-swimming & soaring out of the ocean onto the ice.

The aurora australis, which result from solar wind, the earth's magnetic field & the earth's atmoshere (science lesson over now), is photograhed & showcased as well. Gorgeous photos here.

If March of the Penguins comes near you at all, I highly recommend it. Rush out there & go see it.
