We The People - Begins January 6, 2014
This powerful giant screen historical documentary is the story of America’s founding documents and the people who wrote, shaped and tested them. From men who would defy a king – to a man who would not let the “more perfect union die – to women who struggled for equality, We the People delivers through the giant screen a powerful national self-reflection and inspires every citizen to uphold the ideals and truths of our Republic – tenets that so strongly influence all our daily lives.
Jerusalem: sacred to half the people on earth; fought over more than any other place in history; conquered and destroyed, rebuilt and reinvented repeatedly over 5,000 years. Now, for the first-time ever, a new 3D giant screen film adventure immerses audiences in a spectacular cinematic journey—soaring high above the Holy Land and plunging deep into the vibrant Old City—so they can experience as never before the iconic sites cherished by billions.
Flight of the Butterflies 3D
What is Flight of the Butterflies in 3D? It’s a natural history epic. It’s a detective story. It took Dr. Fred Urquhart almost 40 years to discover the butterflies’ secret hideaway and a year for the award-winning production team to film the butterflies. Immerse yourself in the astounding migration experience as the butterflies migrate north from Mexico to Canada and travel back south to the incredible butterfly sanctuaries of Mexico.
Great White Shark 3D
Misrepresented, maligned and misunderstood, the Great White Shark is an iconic predator: the creature we love to fear… GWS will explore the Great White’s place in our imaginations, in our fears, and in the reality of its role at the top of the oceanic food chain.
Titans of the Ice Age 3D
Titans of the Ice Age transports viewers to the beautiful and otherworldly frozen landscapes of North America, Europe and Asia ten thousand years before modern civilization. Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life—from saber-toothed cats and giant sloths to the iconic mammoths, giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans. The magic of the giant screen reveals the harsh and beautiful kingdom of these titans: an ancient world of ice, the dawn of our ancestors, a time when humans fought for survival alongside majestic woolly beasts.
Flying Monsters 3D
In the giant-screen adventure film Flying Monsters 3D, world-renowned naturalist David Attenborough sets out to uncover the truth about pterosaurs, the enigmatic creatures whose wingspans are thought to have been more than 40 feet, equal to that of a modern-day jet plane.

Armed with an IMAX® camera, a fleet of customized vehicles designed to withstand gale force winds, torrential rains and unrelenting hail, and an arsenal of the most advanced weather measurement instruments ever created, Casey and the VORTEX2 scientists take audiences on a heart-pounding mission to experience a tornado's destructive power while gathering the most comprehensive extreme weather data ever collected.
