A new film examining the icy wilderness of the Arctic opens on Friday, Sept. 2, at The American Museum of Natural History, Central Park West at 79th Street in Manhattan. “Wonders of the Arctic” tells the story of survival in one of the most unforgiving environments on earth.

Scientists and Inuit leaders show the impact of ice on the Arctic’s inhabitants — humans as well as animals such as polar bears, huskies and narwhals.

The 40-minute movie will be be shown daily through March 2 in the museum’s Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Theater in 2-D or 3-D. For prices or to purchase tickets in advance, call 212-769-5200 or visit
