Living in the Age of Airplanes
NEW Theater Opens 10/10!
Our brand new Northfield Savings Bank Theater, a National Geographic Experience, opens next Saturday! Come by Oct. 10 to see the first public showings of National Geographic films “Living in the Age of Airplanes” and “Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure.” We’ll have great giveaways for movie-goers and of course all our regular programming too.
Science & Stories
Science & Stories
Every Wednesday morning, ECHO educator Elizabeth Nuckols joins area preschoolers for Science and Stories. These themed get-togethers feature age-appropriate activities, including story time, crafts, songs, and social time. Keep an eye on ECHO’s online calendar for weekly themes and don’t miss this opportunity, every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.

Bright lights
Thanks to a grant from Google, we have been developing something really cool. Lake Brite is a data visualization project, meaning we can show data using 7,500 individually programmable lights. The bulbs were hung this week and are being tested out, the full use of data will begin in December and it’s going to be amazing!
Snake Skin
Adding to the ECHO Experience

It’s finally here. ECHO’s newest addition, the Northfield Savings Bank Theater, a National Geographic Experience, has arrived. Staff gathered this week for a sneak preview and we can’t wait to bring the fun to you, our guests and supporters. These films are the best out there, and we are honored to bring them to Burlington and our visitors from far away. Come in, check them out, and stay in touch to see what films we’ll be showing next!

All the best,

Phelan Fretz
Executive Director
