Look for sharks on the small screen tonight!

Just in time for summer, we have sharks on the (really!) big screen, and now the small screen. At 7:30 this evening, point your television sets to Channel 5's Chronicle for an exciting look at Great White Shark 3D, which is now playing at the Aquarium's Simons IMAX Theatre. The program's Indie Showcase feature will dive into this thrilling documentary and talk to Aquarium shark expert John Mandelman, PhD, about the forecast for this summer in local waters.
