Go on a real-life journey across the world's final frontier in one of the greatest survival stories of all time in the Clay Center's newest giant screen film. "Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure" premieres Nov. 10 in the ElectricSky Theater.

Travel the mountains and glaciers of South Georgia Island with famous explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton on the now-legendary 1914–16 British Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Discover uncharted territory and see the human spirit at its best in this extraordinary tale of endurance as Shackleton and his crew fight to survive nearly two years in frigid terrain after their ship is destroyed.

While at the Center, have fun with physics and learn about Newton's Laws of Motion in "Roll Drop Bounce," the latest traveling exhibit in the Mylan Explore-atory. Then, find out about the stories of constellations in the fall sky in the "Harvest Skies" planetarium show.

Visit the art gallery for the final chance to cast your vote in a battle for bragging rights as "Gallery Divided," an exhibit featuring the works of Marshall and WVU art faculty, closes on Nov. 11.  Plus, check out fine art prints distributed through direct mail during the Great Depression in "Art by Subscription," on exhibit through Dec. 9. 

Active, reserve and retired military personnel can check out everything the Center has to offer for free on Veteran's Day. Just present your military ID for free museum gallery, film and planetarium show admission on Nov. 11.

"Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure" is sponsored by Alpha Natural Resources. Show times will be Wednesday through Saturday at noon, 1, 3 and 4 p.m. and Sundays at 1, 3 and 4 p.m. This film will be shown through March 8.
