Griffith Observatory Delves Into Mayan Calendar Myths in New Show - LA Daily News
Meteors explode across Santa Monica, buckling lifeguard stands while sending the world-famous Ferris wheel whirling across the beach.
Monkeys then descend on bat wings to signal the Mayan-calendar apocalypse forecast for Dec. 21, 2012.
“Hold it, hold it!” barks a Griffith Observatory lecturer, suddenly freezing the planetarium pyrotechnics overhead. “Oh, it’s the end of the world.
“Actually, the Mayan calender makes no such prediction. … The world will not end in December.”
So begins “Time’s Up,” the provocative new Griffith Observatory planetarium spectacle that opens May 31 at Los Angeles’ most visible landmark.
