Tellus stages own ‘Night at Museum’ sequel
There’s no “Night at the Museum” sequel at multiplexes this summer, which could be a good or bad thing depending on your appetite for Ben Stiller hijinks.
But there will be a “Night at the Museum 3” at Tellus Science Museum Aug. 6. The Cartersville attraction drew 900 people for its first “Night at the Museum” event in 2009 and nearly 1,500 last year.
This year’s event will focus on science fiction vs. science fact, with more than 50 actors portraying “Star Wars” characters, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Ripley from “Alien.” On the fact side of the coin, there will be appearances by the likes of Albert Einstein, Mary Shelley and the Wright Brothers. Kids can fill up free autograph books, watch “mad scientists” doing demonstrations in the theater and view free, shortened planetarium shows.
Reserve tickets, $20, by calling 770-606-5700, ext. 431. 100 Tellus Drive (Exit 293 off I-75), Cartersville. www.tellusmuseum.org. HOWARD
