    IMAX WITH LASER!

    Members-Only Double-Feature Screening
    Wednesday, October 18, 2017
    7:30 p.m. – Amazon Adventure 3D; 8:45 p.m. – Hurricane 3D

     
    Members are invited to a free double-feature screening of two new films in our re-launched theater featuring IMAX with Laser! First up at 7:30 p.m. is Amazon Adventure 3D—the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates’ fascinating 11-year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest in the 1850s. Be inspired by Bates’ endless curiosity and determination to explore the wilds of nature from the time he was a young boy.

    At 8:45 p.m. (after a brief intermission), experience Hurricane 3D—the true story of one of the most devastating natural events on our planet: the Atlantic hurricane. Filmmakers teamed up with NASA to follow the hurricane as it begins its 15,000-kilometer journey as an ominous sandstorm in Senegal, heading west across the Atlantic building momentum as it tosses ships on growing swells, then crashes into the jungles of the Caribbean.

    The IMAX Theater concession stand will be open for purchase of snacks before the first film and during intermission—Members receive a 20% discount.
