Captain America: Civil War: The IMAX Experience

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl. Anthony and Joe Russo are directing, with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 5. This film is not yet rated.

Botanical Soap Making

Soap has been described as “the yardstick of civilization.” Cold process soap making can be traced to ancient times, and it's still in use today. Learn this ancient method, and create your very own soap. Learn a little about saponification (starting with how to say it!), why soap works and the benefits that real soap brings to your skin. The class is for ages 15+, and you will be given safety goggles to wear. The difference between this class and Soap 101 is you will choose from 1 of 4 botanicals to use for the top of your soap: lemon grass, coffee, citrus or lavender. You will determine the color and scent (most likely to match your botanical), as well as determine additives for your soap, including clays and exfoliants. You will pick up your product the following week after it cures, taking home 4-5 bars of soap.
