Tampa – Experience the sea and its marvelous marine life streaming into the IMAX Dome Theatre at Tampa’s Museum of Science & Industry on Friday, Feb. 13.
Through the visual majesty of IMAX, audiences will be transported to the crystal blue domains of diverse underwater dwellers, including the Leafy Sea Dragon and the Flamboyant Cuttlefish.
Under the Sea, a new IMAX® adventure, transports moviegoers to some of the most exotic and isolated undersea locations on Earth, including South Australia, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Coral Triangle islands of Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, allowing them to experience face-to-face encounters with some of the most mysterious and stunning creatures of the sea. It offers a uniquely inspirational and entertaining way to explore the beauty and natural wonder of the oceans, as well as the impact of global climate change upon them. In IMAX, the images will literally leap off the screen and float around the theatre, putting the audience in the movie.
“Part of what our IMAX films are designed to do is create a sense of value for the animals and for the environment,” said director Howard Hall. “We hope people will come to know and love these animals when they experience their world through the extraordinary image quality of IMAX. Most people will not have heard of these creatures. But once people get to know them and then learn that global warming and ocean acidification may be damaging their environment, we think they’ll start to care. Making people care is our mission.”
“IMAX’s unrivaled visual clarity and Howard’s passion for his subjects are resonant throughout Under the Sea,” said producer Toni Myers. “Most people will never encounter these creatures face to face in the wild, and IMAX is able to bring audiences as close to swimming alongside them as they’ll ever get. Howard’s keen eye and incredible patience allow him to capture ever more astonishing sequences with every film he makes.”
Warner Bros. Pictures and IMAX Corporation present Under the Sea, opening exclusively in IMAX theatres nationwide. This film has been rated G for general audiences and has a running time of 40 minutes and 45 seconds.
The IMAX® Dome Theatre is located at 4801 E. Fowler Ave, Tampa. For information on tickets and show times, call 813-987-6000 or visit www.mosi.org.
