Cinema Learning Challenge Mission Statement
Our mission is to inspire audiences and connect students to careers and opportunities through educational films and interactive learning field trips supporting Nevada’s academic standards and provide quality films for families.
Our films are produced for life-long learning for the entire family.
We specialize in providing educational Film Field Trips on the BIG Screen and hands-on learning activities lead by an educator in the Theater.
Our films support Nevada’s Academic Content Standards and are shown in museums and planetariums worldwide for students and families. Audiences are inspired when they see scientists changing lives and going to amazing locations.
Our films are shown on weekday mornings and for special events on weekends.
Creator of Cinema Learning Challenge
The CLC Program was created by Tina Ratterman, founder and president of BIG & Digital, LLC, a worldwide distributor of films for museums and planetariums since 2009.
Ratterman wanted the museum-quality educational films, made for Giant Screens, IMAX® Theaters and Domes, to be available in Las Vegas for students and families as an enjoyable experience of inspiration and life-long learning.
With the support of staff and volunteers, and Eclipse Theaters as our Host Theater for Field Trips in 2018-2019, we served over 1400 Students. Many of these were middle school students brought to the Program from the Clark County School District’s Career Technology Education Office to connect students to careers and company’s with a focus on Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM). Our films and hands-on activities provide a unique and engaging Field Trip experience.
The CLC has grown for the 2019-2020 School Year with a second location, Galaxy Theatres at Boulevard Mall. This new location is also the official Public Show Venue for our films to be seen in the Sony Digital Cinema.
We thank the teachers, administrators, students and community partners for the support and look forward to working to support education and life-long learning in Las Vegas and beyond.
