Connecticut Science Center in downtown Hartford inked a deal that ensures "Meerkats 3D'' and other National Georgraphic films for its wide-screen digital theater for the next few years.
The Science Center said Wednesday it signed a content-licensing agreement with National Geographic Cinema Ventures. Financial terms weren't disclosed, but the pact is effective for the next three to five years, officials said.
The relationship also gives the Science Center priority in obtaining new films from NGCV.
Currently, the center's Hoffman Foundation Science Theater features National Geographic's "Flying Monsters 3D", a look back 220 million years ago, when dinosaurs were beginning their domination of the Earth.
"Meerkats 3D", the newest National Geographic-distributed film for digital theaters, premieres Aug. 31 at the Science Center.
