On Saturday, March 29 at 10 a.m. several Massachusetts theatres for one show on one day will show the The Zula Patrol: Animal Adventures in Space!. This adventure will take children ages 3 to 8 on an exciting and fun-filled animated ride through the universe - and teach them about metamorphosis and life cycles along the way. Five never-before-seen episodes from the acclaimed public television series will premiere in this in-theatre special event, which will include sing-a-longs that enhance children's participation and interest in exploring science, math and astronomy.
The Zula Patrol: Animal Adventures in Space! features five brand-new missions. Kids will follow the Zula Patrollers on their ecological adventures as they search for stolen frog eggs, help restore life in the canyon on Zula, solve the mystery of the missing honey, and tunnel through the dirt with their new worm boot camp comrades to save their little ecosystem. And along the way they will discover a little something about the importance of the plants and animals in our environment.
Tickets for this special one-time-only event are available at presenting theatre box offices and online at http://www.fathomevents.com/.

ABOUT ZULA PATROL: Featuring a group of animated aliens who travel the Galaxies, exploring and discovering all about science, math and astronomy, The Zula Patrol debuted on public television in fall 2005 to resoundingly positive reviews. The series, which also reinforces themes of tolerance and non-violence, has been heralded by The New York Times as Sesame Street in outer space. Season Three of the award-winning series is scheduled to premiere in summer 2008, treating young viewers to 26 new scientific adventures with their space traveling pals Bula, Zeeter, Multo, Gorga, Wizzy and Wigg. The show is produced by Zula USA, LLC and was created by Dr. Deborah Manchester. "'Metamorphosis' and 'habitats' may not be typical topics for a Saturday morning cartoon event but 'The Zula Patrol' engages kids to learn more about their universe in a fun and exciting way that both they and their parents will truly enjoy," said Dan Diamond, vice president of NCM Fathom. "NCM Fathom is excited to partner with Zula USA to bring this entertaining and educational event to big screens nationwide."
"The Zula Patrol" will premiere on DVD later this month when two titles - The Zula Patrol: Explore Space!" and The Zula Patrol: Explore Weather! - become available exclusively at Borders and www. borders.com.
