Featured Events of the Week:

Chimpanzee Opening Week

When: Friday, April 20 – Thursday, April 26, 2012

Where: Nationwide

Rated G, Chimpanzee swings into theaters on April 20, 2012, just in time for Earth Day.  Disneynature’s newest true-life adventure introduces adorable Oscar, a young chimp whose playful curiosity and zest for discovery light up the African forest until a twist of fate leaves Oscar to fend for himself with a little help from an unexpected ally.  For every moviegoer who sees Chimpanzee during the film’s opening week (April 20-26, 2012), Disneynature will make a donation to the Jane Goodall Institute through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund in order to protect chimpanzees and their habitats, now and into the future.
