In Saturn's Rings

In Saturn’s Rings is a groundbreaking giant-screen movie adventure that takes audiences on a space exploration journey of the mind, heart, and spirit, from the Big Bang to the awe-inspiring rings of Saturn. Narrated by LeVar Burton, In Saturn’s Rings is created entirely of more than 7.5 million stunning images of Saturn, the Milky Way, and the Universe taken by Hubble, Cassini, and other NASA space telescopes looking deep into the past. In some scenes, a single photograph is used per frame, but many frames are a giant collage of thousands of photographs seamlessly joined. This independent documentary film is animated to full-motion without CGI, 3D modeling, or simulations.

Volcanoes

Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation is a tale of science, culture, and thrilling adventure. Earth is a planet born of fire. For billions of years, volcanoes have helped create the world we know. From the continents to the air we breathe and even life itself, all have their origins in fire. These processes have created extraordinary ecosystems and wildlife habitats. With over 500 active volcanoes, the Earth is bursting at the seams with these forces of mass construction. The story of volcanoes is the story of the planet’s creation, and the story of us.

With intrepid explorer Carsten Peter, dodge boulders at the edge of an active volcano in Indonesia, descend to a lava lake in Vanuatu and visit the incredible mineral deposit fields in Ethiopia. Travel across the globe to see the archeological ghost town of Pompeii and witness the devastating effects of the recent Kilauea eruption in Hawaii.

Audiences will be on the edge of their seats as they discover molten worlds and exploding craters in this adrenaline-filled, immersive experience that only IMAX®/Giant Screen films can provide.
