Dir. Ang Lee. 2012, 120 mins. With Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan. Dolby Digital 3-D courtesy of  20th Century Fox. After the sinking of a cargo ship, a solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild, blue Pacific. The only survivors from the wreck are a 16-year-old boy named Pi, a hyena, a zebra (with a broken leg), a female orangutan, and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger. Yann Martel’s beloved novel, an international best-seller, has been brought to the screen in spectacular fashion by Lee (Brokeback Mountain; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), with a screenplay by David Magee. There will be a conversation with Magee following the screening, presented in Dolby Digital 3-D.

Tickets: $20 public / $12 Museum members / Free for Silver Screen members and above.
