In yesterday's editions, a review of "Tropical Rainforest," the new film at the Maryland Science Center's IMAX theater, contained incorrect information about the price of admission. Admission to the center, which includes the theater, costs $8.50 for adults; $6.50 for children ages 4-17, senior citizens and military personnel; children under 4, free.The Sun regrets the error.Sometimes understanding the big picture requires examining its smallest parts -- which explains why "Tropical Rainforest" offers so many close-ups of beetles, spiders, butterflies, frogs and other little life forms that thrive in the rain forest.
