COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

National Geographic’s 3D film "Jerusalem" returns to the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center’s Giant Screen Theater just in time for the observance of Lent and Easter. 

The film is scheduled for a limited run from March 5 to March 27. 

The unique documentary features the stories of real-life inhabitants of the ancient city and prominent archaeologists exploring the city’s historical, spiritual, cultural, and artistic contributions to the world. 

The film also explores some of the intersections between Judaism, Christianity and Islam by following the personal lives of three young Jerusalemites and their families. 

Filmmakers were granted special permission to work within the region's strict no-fly zone, allowing them to capture the first-ever large format aerial images of the old city.

As a result, audiences are given a rare bird’s-eye view of the city as well as exclusive access to iconic holy sites and little-known parts of the holy land in one breathtaking, 45-minute experience.

"Through the unrivaled beauty, visceral nature and incredible technology of the giant screen format, you feel as if you are experiencing Jerusalem up-close and first-hand," said writer/director Daniel Ferguson.

Admission prices are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors/students/military and $6 for children ages 4-12. Children ages 4 and under will receive free admission.

Tickets can be purchased at the Box Office in the museum lobby during museum operating hours. Call 706-685-2622 for more information. Groups may be eligible for discounted rates, and can book in advance by calling 706-685-5814.
