National Geographic's "The Last Lions" - Uptown: $5 for Admission to National Geographic's "The Last Lions" in Minneapolis (Up to $9 Value)

Lions are strong, majestic creatures that inspire courage, bravery, and pet-envy as you watch your tabby lazily cough hairballs onto your best jacket. Bask in the glory of these beasts with today's Groupon: for $5, you get admission to National Geographic's The Last Lions (up to a $9 value). This deal is valid for any showing between Friday, March 11 and Thursday, March 17 at Uptown Theatre on Hennepin Avenue.

With an arsenal of informative magazines, elegant photographs, and illuminating documentaries, National Geographic has inspired planetary responsibility and natural wonderment for more than 120 years. Their latest filmed adventure, The Last Lions, ushers viewers into the wetlands of Botswana's Okavango Delta, where a lioness named Ma di Tau and her cubs fight for their survival. From fleeing raging fires and cub-killing rival prides to wading through crocodile-infested rivers and the supermarket at rush hour, this family suffers perils that leave audiences touched and awestruck. Crafted by award-winning filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert, and narrated by Jeremy Irons, The Last Lions aims to raise awareness of dwindling big-cat populations while sharing a compelling story of hope. The film is rated PG for depictions of the food-chain cycle without the accompaniment of an Elton John song.

In the last 50 years, lion populations have plummeted, leaving roughly 20,000 in the wilderness. Proceeds from ticket sales of The Last Lions will further National Geographic's Big Cats Initiative to increase understanding through education, research, and conservation, eliminating the need for overhyped lioness dating shows. Every viewing of the film's trailer will donate 10 cents toward a jungle-king conservation fund. For more ways to donate, check out National Geographic's Cause an Uproar page.
