Fernbank adds exhibit hours, movies for Martinis & IMAX

Fernbank Museum of Natural History has officially extended the Friday viewing hours for its ‘Gold’ exhibit to open it up to Martinis & IMAX visitors through Nov. 27.

The exhibit was to close at 5 p.m., before the Friday night martini-and-movie set arrived. The new hours keep the special exhibition open from 5:30-10 p.m. Fridays through November. During those hours, exhibit admission is free with a Martinis & IMAX ticket, or $7 without a movie ticket. Here’s a preview of the ‘Gold’ exhibit.

The Friday night film schedule has been tweaked, too, to fill the theater with films they’re calling “Golden Oldies.” These films will be shown in the IMAX theater, but won’t be in IMAX format, and cost only $7, a discount from the regular Martinis & IMAX admission:

10 p.m. Oct. 16: “Austin Powers in Goldmember”
10 p.m. Oct. 23: “Goldfinger”
8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Oct. 30: “Beetlejuice,” for Fright Night
10 p.m. Nov. 6: “The Goonies,” for Pirate Night
10 p.m. Nov. 27: “Saturday Night Fever,” for Solid Gold Night

The regular IMAX schedule includes “Wild Safari: A South African Adventure” and “Van Gogh: Brush with Genius.”

Want to go? “Gold” runs through Jan. 3, 2010 at Fernbank Museum of Natural History, 767 Clifton Road, N.E., Atlanta. 404-929-6300,

  • Regular hours and costs: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday, noon-5 p.m. on Sunday. $13-15, free for children ages 2 and younger and members.
