Follow a team of paleoclimatologists as they unlock the secrets of the Earth's climate in a seemingly unlikely place: caves. Ancient Caves immerses you in these vast underground worlds where you'll see stalagmite samples that are geologic "fingerprints" that reveal clues about our planet's climate history. You'll follow the team to some of the world's most remote caves, above and below water, in France, Iceland, the Bahamas, the United States and Mexico. Narrated by Bryan Cranston.

One documentary film is included with a Fleet Experience admission ticket. You may purchase a Fleet Experience admission ticket on-line and scan at the Fleet Science Center’s entrance on your date of choice. 

All documentary films are available on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations are required. Individual tickets for Ancient Caves showtimes are not available.  Doors to the theater open approximately 10 minutes prior to showtimes.
