Titans of the Ice Age 3D

The La Brea Story

Journey to a world lost in time, buried in ice, and ruled by giants. In this exciting 3D adventure, discover an icy world on the brink of extinction, where humans share the frozen tundra with majestic beasts. Encounter some of the Earth’s most awe-inspiring mammals, from saber-toothed cats and dire wolves to giant sloths and the iconic mammoths that lived 10,000 years before modern civilization.

See how these magnificent creatures became trapped in tar, preserved in time, and are being unearthed today. Discover the story of “Zed,” a near-complete Columbian mammoth that was recently found at the La Brea Tar Pits. Learn about one of the richest depositories of Ice Age fossils, where Ice Age secrets come in all sizes, from great mammoths, to dire wolf skulls to a treasure trove of tiny microfossils. They are a record of what lived in La Brea 10,000-40,000 years ago and are clues to the environment and climate at the time. What we discover are links to ancient Ice Age Los Angeles and how climate changes still affect us today.

Explore the harsh and beautiful kingdom of the titans in the age of ice, narrated by Christopher Plummer. Titans of the Ice Age is showing now.

Werner Herzog’s Cave of Forgotten Dreams


Available during Late Night Fridays this Summer

Embark on an emotional journey as you get a rare look at an amazing hidden treasure. In this breathtaking 3D documentary, unparalleled filmmaker Werner Herzog and a small crew take us into France’s Chauvet Cave, where the walls are covered with the world’s oldest surviving paintings. Examining the 30,000-year-old drawings, Herzog discusses how the artwork represents humanity's earliest dreams with scientists and art scholars conducting research at Chauvet. Discoveries like these give us a glimpse into early human history, which possibly may show us connections to early humans who lived in Los Angeles 10,000 years ago.

Witness one of mankind’s greatest discoveries, only shown during our Late Night Fridays at the La Brea Tar Pits.

June 8 Showings: 5:00 pm and 6:30 pm
Additional Fridays – check back next week for additional dates and times.
