It's Tough to be a Bug

Join Flik for this hilarious 3-D movie inspired by Disney/Pixar's “a bug's life.”

Featuring in-theater special effects, lighting and audio-animatronics, the film gives you an idea of what it would be like to be an insect, and shows you why bugs should be seen as friends rather than pests.
