To Fly (showing Feb 5 & Feb 26)
A brief summary of the history of flight, from 19th century balloons through 21st century space probes. The evolution of flying technology is portrayed in parallel with the story of the westward exploration of America and the rural-to-cosmopolitan transformation of American society.
Storm Chasers (showing Feb 12)
Follow the people who follow the storms. Prepare to take a ride inside some of the most extreme weather conditions experienced on earth. Hurricanes, monsoons, and tornadoes are the stars of "Stormchasers", an exhilarating large-format film by MacGillivray Freeman Films. Weather is one of the most evolving and exciting areas of science, one that we experience every day. In "Stormchasers," we join storm-chasing meteorologists who track extreme weather conditions in order to understand how they form.
Hurricane on the Bayou (showing Feb 19)
A powerfully moving large format film unlike any other, Hurricane on the Bayou carries audiences behind today's news headlines on a journey deep into the soul-stirring heart of Louisiana - before, during and after the unprecedented devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Narrated by Academy Award winning actress Meryl Streep and driven by a rousing jazz, blues and gospel-fueled soundtrack, Hurricane on the Bayou is both a haunting document of a storm's human effects and a compelling call to restore Louisiana's wetlands, rebuild New Orleans, and honor the place where America's most vibrant home-grown culture was born. Unfolding against the poignant backdrop of the most costly natural disaster in America's history, MacGillivray Freeman's IMAX cameras follow a group of four musicians, both legendary and rising, as they explore the electrifying culture of New Orleans: speed through the beautiful, alligator-filled bayous on airboats; recount their heart-wrenching, personal stories of Katrina; and most of all, bring the focus to the rapidly disappearing wetlands that are New Orleans' first line of defense against deadly storms. The wealth, cultural vitality and very future of New Orleans depend on the preservation of these wetlands.
