The young magician’s apprentice LIMBRADUR is far more interested in the universe and its secrets than in studying for magic school.
When he sneaks into the Albert Einstein Museum, he meets ALBY, a small, clever but rather quirky robot who knows all about Albert Einstein and his discoveries about gravity.

Featuring eleven-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater, The Ultimate Wave Tahiti follows a quest to find the perfect wave-riding experience. The film’s action focuses on Tahiti and the volcanic islands of French Polynesia, home to some of the world’s most challenging surfing and to astounding coral reef ecosystems at the turbulent interface between island and ocean. The islands are also a homeland of traditional Polynesian seafaring culture and the art of surfing.
With their host, Tahitian surfer Raimana Van Bastolear, Kelly Slater and a group of friends seek out the best waves breaking on the reef at Tahiti’s famed surf site Teahupoo. Kelly and Raimana share a passion for the waves, but different ideas about what surfing means to them: is it a modern competitive sport or an ancient Polynesian wave-riding art? As the surf quest unfolds, the film explores the hidden forces at work shaping the waves and the islands that lie in their path. The great waves arrive and surfing play becomes surfing survival as the riders tackle some of the biggest, heaviest surf on the planet.
AVI’s newest interactive modular planetarium program covering the national science standards for weather – grades K-2.
Module One: Using the Senses to Observe Weather and Identifying Cloud Types – Module one will help connect children to the weather around them by encouraging them to use their senses to observe weather. It will also introduce children to the basic cloud types and how they are associated with specific weather conditions. The idea of weather forecasting will be presented in this module as well.
Module Two: Describing and Measuring the Weather – This module will introduce children to the basic weather terms that are used to describe weather conditions. It will also help children identify the appropriate instruments that are used for studying and measuring weather.
Module Three: Identifying the Basic Features of the Water Cycle – The final module will present the major steps of the water cycle. To help with this concept, children will follow a drop of water through the entire water cycle.
While on a routine fossil-hunting expedition, The Zula Patrol turns up evidence that the villainous Deliria Delight has been traveling back in time to Earth’s prehistoric past to illegally dump her company’s toxic trash.
