Join us for Zoovie Nights!

Zoovie Nights: Family Movie Night Put on your jammies and enjoy an evening of animal close-ups and a bonus Zoovie movie with the whole family. Bring your pillows, blankets, and chairs and snuggle up in our auditorium as Roosevelt, our costumed alligator mascot, introduces you to some of our nocturnal Education animals. After that, enjoy a specially-selected animal-or nature-themed movie. Hot chocolate (with marshmallows, of course) and popcorn will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own treats and traditional family movie fare.
