The museum has installed a 3D projector, converting its auditorium into the WRAL 3D Theater (with support from WRAL and Capitol Broadcasting Company, which Go Ask Mom is a part of).
The theater's opening includes visits from Casey and VORTEX2 scientist Karen Kosiba, along with up close looks at the Tornado Intercept Vehicle and the Doppler on Wheels, which are featured in the movie.
Admission to the natural sciences museum is free, but there is a charge for the movie. Tickets are $4 for adults; $3.50 for seniors age 65 and up, students and military; and $3 for kids ages 2 to 11. Movie show times will be at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday. On Sundays, you can catch it at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. It opens Oct. 29.
You'll be able to purchase same day tickets at the museum box office. "Tornado Alley" will run through early 2012.
