Houston, zoo, events, family, children

Houston’s pint sized paleontologists will be thrilled to hear that their favorite PBS stars are headed to the Houston Zoo for a Big Screen debut! Everyone is invited to a special pre-screening event to see Buddy, Tiny, Shiny, Don and the entire Pteranodon family adventure into the city in their new one-hour special: Dinosaur Big City!, a Dinosaur Train movie.

On Saturday, August 20 the Houston Zoo will be partnering with Houston PBS/Channel 8 to host three screenings of this well loved animated children’s movie in the Brown Education Center at 10 AM, 12 PM and 2 PM.

The special screening is FREE with your Zoo admission on August 20, but seating is limited and will be first come, first serve, so make sure to arrive early!

The movie will air on August 22 at 8 AM and 1 PM on Houston PBS/Channel 8.

From the world-renowned Jim Henson Company, the hit Dinosaur Train series is seen in over 13 million households every month. The series encourages scientific thinking and other skills as it teaches children about natural science, natural history and paleontology. DINOSAUR TRAIN’s second season will focus on exploring the outdoors and natural phenomena, and will feature “Big Dinosaur Week” and a special based on the fan favorite “Dinosaurs A to Z” song.
