A big story about very small creatures on the CINÉ+ giant screen

December 21, 2016


For immediate release

Gatineau, Quebec, December 21, 2016 — The Canadian Museum of History’s CINÉ+ movie theatre will present an adventure of giant proportions created by BBC Earth Productions. Starting Friday, December 23, Tiny Giants 3D will transport audiences into the astonishing lives of miniature heroes, showing that the smaller you are, the bigger the adventure.

A chipmunk in a wild wood and a grasshopper mouse in Arizona’s scorched deserts are both forced to grow up fast when they find themselves alone for the first time.
Facing experienced rivals and huge predators, our chipmunk hero must find the courage to gather enough acorns for winter. Forced out of the family home, our adolescent grasshopper mouse is then swept away in a flash flood. He needs to learn the skills to survive and lay claim to his own patch of desert as he becomes an adult. Only by using their ingenious superpowers can our heroes not only stay alive but also become masters of their universe.

With jaw-dropping drama, this film reveals the great courage and skill that are essential for our planet’s smallest creatures to succeed in a titanic battle for survival. Groundbreaking cinematography and cutting-edge 3D technology are combined to achieve an incredible immersive intimacy that allows audiences to truly see and feel what life is like when you’re less than one foot tall!
Coming to the CINÉ+ screen just in time for the holidays, Tiny Giants 3D is a perfect fit for a fun family outing and for children of all ages. Presented on the biggest and brightest screen in the region, this film will truly be an adventure of giant proportions.
