BBC Worldwide North America  and Fathom Events announce the celebration of
Emmy® Award-winning actor David Tennant (“Broadchurch,” “Fright Night”) in a
two-night special theatrical screening event all for the price of one ticket.

next night, experience the earth from a bird’s eye view in “Wings 3D” narrated
by David Tennant on June 17 at 7:30 p.m. local time in RealD™ 3D.

Tickets for “Doctor Who Cybermen + Wings 3D” are available at participating

May 15. The event will be presented in 620 select movie theaters around the
country through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of
theater locations and prices, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and
participants are subject to change).

In this special theatrical cut of “Doctor Who: Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of
Steel,” the TARDIS is trapped on a parallel Earth and Rose discovers her
father is still alive. But sinister forces are at work as John Lumic prepares
British society for the Ultimate Upgrade reawakening an old enemy. Can the
Doctor and Rose save the people from conversion or will they face deletion at
the hands of the Cybermen?

These episodes mark the first appearance of the Cybermen in the relaunched
series of Doctor Who bringing a brand new look to the Doctor's terrifying
adversaries.Doctor Who is BBC AMERICA’s highest rated series and celebrated
its 50^th Anniversary last year.

Next, from Emmy® Award-nominated director John Downer comes the theatrical
event “Wings 3D,” a groundbreaking aerial adventure. This feature-length
RealD™ 3D experience was filmed with revolutionary aerial devices and
techniques to fly right alongside birds. This breathtaking journey will take
viewers across the world's most iconic landscapes to the heart of the greatest
animal spectacles on Earth: snow geese dash through Monument Valley and New
York City, vultures ascend miles above the earth then dive down to huge
wildebeest herds below, scarlet macaws race at breakneck speed through the
rainforest. Using unique, state-of-the-art 3D cameras in barely accessible and
highly dangerous places, the audience has never before been so close to the
drama and beauty of nature until now.

Soumya Sriraman, EVP of Licensing and Home Entertainment for BBC Worldwide
North America, says, “Once again we are bringing Doctor Who to theaters to
give fans a new way to experience the Tenth Doctor – David Tennant, and we are
making it extra special with a two-night theatrical event for Tennant fans
across the country. From the finest in science fiction to the best of natural
history, there will be something for everyone to enjoy- all on the same
ticket.”

“Fans of all types come out in full force to experience the infamous Doctor
Who in our cinema events,” said Dan Diamond, senior vice president of Fathom
Events. “We’re sure that this special two-night event featuring the
incomparable David Tennant will offer them a unique opportunity they won’t
want to miss.”
