Volcanic eruptions focus on new Clay Center film
CHARLESTON -- Journey around the globe to view volcanic eruptions in the Clay Center's next giant screen film.
"Ring of Fire" premieres Sunday, July 6 in the ElectricSky Theater.
From Washington's Mount St. Helens to Indonesia's Mount Merapi and locations in Japan and Chile, you will experience the power of eruptions around this 25,000-mile stretch along the basin of the Pacific Ocean. Discover the geologic forces that impact this ring of explosive and unpredictable seismic activity, along with the people who must survive within it.
Show times for "Ring of Fire" will be Wednesday through Saturday at noon, 1, 3 and 4 p.m. and Sundays at 1, 3 and 4 p.m. through Nov. 2.
While at the Center, visit the virtual world of Oak Island, make a coin rubbing, practice your safe-cracking skills and see artifacts from beneath the sea in the hands-on exhibit, "The Hunt for Treasure." Then, discover the amazing size and scale of our universe in the planetarium show, "Beyond the Sky." Plus, explore the natural world through artwork and interactive experiences in "Every Living Thing: A Closer Look at Nature," and examine themes of good and evil in "Faith & the Devil" in the art gallery.
