Like a disaster film done by Disney, the new IMAX production HURRICANE ON THE BAYOU (pictured), opening Sat., JAN. 20, relays an important environmental message through a super-perky friendship. Sixteen-year-old fiddling force of nature Amanda Shaw and her Cajun blues guitar-picking friend, Tab Benoit, walk us through Louisiana's abused and vulnerable ecosystem. A pluckier, eyeball-surrounding answer to stick-figure Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, this film may get a younger generation equally stirred up over the disappearing wetlands, the Katrina-flummoxed baby gators and the ill-fated human New Orleanians, too, whose future will be determined by the proper stewardship of this fragile, beautiful place. Through June 30. $6-$11. Mon.-Thurs. and Sat., 11 a.m., 1, 3 and 5 p.m.; Fri., 11 a.m., 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 p.m.; Sun., 1, 3 and 5 p.m. Fernbank Museum of Natural History IMAX Theatre, 767 Clifton Road. 404-929-6400. www.fernbankmuseum.org.
