PREHISTORIC PLANET: WALKING WITH DINOSAURS 3D Run time: 45 minutes
(Recommended for ages 8 and up)
Travel alongside hundreds of plant-eating dinosaurs as they face the challenges of a changing world in Prehistoric Planet: Walking with Dinosaurs 3D. From the time they are hatched in the nest, these prehistoric giants face natural disasters and ferocious predators while also playing, hunting, feeding, and undertaking epic migrations. Based on scientific data, the digital dinosaurs come to life against the backdrop of modern Alaska, immersing you in a Cretaceous adventure where you will feel the rumble of these massive herds as they crossed vast landscapes 70 million years ago.

IMAX 3D FILM

TINY GIANTS 3D Run time: 45 minutes
(Recommended for ages 8 and up)

Lower yourself to the level of some of nature’s smallest creatures as they experience some gigantic adventures! Tiny Giants 3D follows a chipmunk in an untamed woodland and a grasshopper mouse in Arizona’s scorched desert as both are forced to grow up fast when they find themselves on their own and facing some ferocious rivals and predators. You will be awed by this suspenseful tale as these mighty minis use their ingenious superpowers to not only survive but to become masters of their universe.

IMAX 3D FILM

HUBBLE 3D Run time: 45 minutes

(suitable for all ages)

Experience a gripping story full of hope, crushing disappointment, dazzling ingenuity, bravery, and triumph. The IMAX film Hubble 3D recounts the amazing journey of the Hubble Space Telescope, arguably the most important scientific instrument since Galileo's original telescope and the greatest success in space since the moon landing. Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, this experience will change the way you see the universe.
