1. National Geographic Live – Spinosaurus: Lost Giant of the Cretaceous at the August Wilson Center: March 3

Come face-to-face with a dinosaur when the National Geographic Live – Spinosaurus: Lost Giant of the Cretaceous show stomps into the August Wilson Center. Paleontologist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer Nizar Ibrahim will present an engrossing video presentation transporting audiences to the prehistoric world of the Spinosaurus. Discovered more than half a century ago in Morocco, the Spinosaurus is the largest predatory dinosaur yet discovered, outsizing even the T. Rex! Hear how the Spinosaurus was almost lost to science before being brought back with the help of Ibrahim and a group of scientists, who reconstructed a full skeletal model of the beast.

National Geographic Live – Spinosaurus: Lost Giant of the Cretaceous takes place at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $25. The event is recommended for ages 6 and up.
