See the FROZEN short - FROZEN FEVER - on the front of this film!

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope.

Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul.

It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and – armed with a pumpkin and a few mice – changes Cinderella’s life forever.

Journey to Space 3D

Journey to Space 3D will be presented in IMAX DIGITAL

Journey to Space 3D is Exempt from Classification*

Through visually stunning imagery, and in collaboration with leading space experts, Journey to Space showcases the exciting plans NASA and the space community are working on and the challenges they must overcome to carry out missions, once considered science fiction, and now science fact - a manned mission to Mars. Journey to Space is a celebration of space exploration, a tribute to international cooperation in space research and a vision toward our near-term future beyond Earth’s orbit – within a generation.  

The film is a capstone space film, building on the groundbreaking and seminal IMAX space productions of the past 30 years—films that are themselves a part of our proud history in space, beautifully and inspiringly chronicling the space shuttle orbiter program. Journey to Space recognizes these accolades in the context of our future in space, what we’ve learned, and how to apply this knowledge to deep space missions. 

The film takes audiences on a behind-the-scenes tour of the international effort to send astronauts to Mars within the next 20 years, culminating in a virtual voyage to the Red Planet.  Dazzling and meticulous computer imagery from Frima Studios depicts the Orion spacecraft, habitats, landers, vehicles and rockets necessary to achieve interplanetary travel, touchdown and colonization.

Rocky Mountain Express is Exempt from Classification*

Rocky Mountain Express has been captured entirely on stunning ultra high resolution 65mm IMAX Film Cameras and is presented on our IMAX 1570 Film projection system, delivering what is simply the most breathtaking cinematic experience available; and one not be missed.

Rocky Mountain Express propels audiences on a steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Rockies and highlights the adventure of building a nearly impossible transcontinental railway.
 
Recruited to realize this venture—one of the greatest engineering feats of all time—were engineers and laborers from around the world. The challenge was immense, and the costs were high - almost every mile of track claimed its share of human life...
 
The film weaves together spectacular IMAX aerial cinematography, archival photographs and maps, and the potent energy and rhythms of a live steam locomotive to immerse audiences in this remarkable story from the age of steam.

The Canadian Pacific Railway started in the mid-nineteenth Century as a dream: a ribbon of steel that would stretch across the North American continent, through thousands of miles of sparsely inhabited wilderness and then, through three mountain ranges to reach a remote colonial outpost on the Pacific coast - Read More

From 27th January to 11th March 2015, IMAX Melbourne Museum will be closed for stage two of a  three stage  multi-million dollar investment project that furthers our commitment to providing Melbourne with an unrivalled premium cinema experience.

This temporary closure will see the installation of new theatre seats, new theatre and foyer carpets and new step tread lighting on the theatre stairs. New seats will be equipped with an innovative foam-based seating technology; Probax®, that will assist audiences to maintain better seating posture, enhancing their comfort during their cinema experience. IMAX Melbourne will be the first venue in Australia to install seating technology of this kind.

Another change to seating will be the addition of 25 ‘Premium Blue’ VIP seats at the back of the theatre. In addition to Probax® technology, the 'Premium Blue' seats will be wider with increased leg room and feature both 'Active Tilt' backrests and an electric foot rest for extra comfort. 

Phase 3 works will occur in late 2015 and include the installation of IMAX’s next generation 4K Laser Light Engine Digital Projection System.  Key readiness works for this Laser Projection System will be undertaken during the Phase 2 closure, and include the installation of IMAX’s new Immersive Audio Sound System, which will add additional speaker channels to the roof and theatre walls. This new sound system will be fully commissioned as part of Phase 3 works.

IMAX Melbourne Museum will reopen on March 12, 2015 with the release of Journey To Space 3D, The Wizard of Oz 3D, and Chappie.  We invite you to join us at this time and be one of the first to enjoy our newly refurbished theatre.

In the Heart of the Sea

Runtime: To be advised

In the Heart of the Sea will be presented in IMAX DIGITAL

Oscar winner Ron Howard (“A Beautiful Mind”) directs the action adventure “In the Heart of the Sea,” based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex.
 
In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.  The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick.  But that told only half the story.  “In the Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive.  Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.
 
“In the Heart of the Sea” stars Chris Hemsworth (“The Avengers,” “Rush”) as the vessel’s veteran first mate Owen Chase; Benjamin Walker (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) as its inexperienced Captain, George Pollard; Cillian Murphy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) as second mate Matthew Joy; and Ben Whishaw (“Skyfall”) as novelist Herman Melville, whose inquiries into the event 30 years later helped bring the story to light.Tom Holland (“The Impossible”) also stars as young seaman Tom Nickerson, and Brendan Gleeson (“Edge of Tomorrow”) as the same man, 30 years later.  Spanish actor Jordi Mollà (“Riddick”) is the captain of another ship, the Archimedes, who tries to warn the Essex of what may lie ahead.

The IMAX release of In the Heart of the Sea will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Pandas 3D: The Journey Home

Opens: 18th June

Pandas 3D: The Journey Home will be presented in IMAX DIGITAL

After thriving for 8 million years in the high bamboo forests of mountainous western China, it took only a few centuries of human expansion to push the giant panda to the brink of extinction. Yet today, with pandas numbering less than 1,600, there is new hope for the species—thanks to a massive effort by the Chinese government to turn the tide.

Pandas 3D: The Journey Home is a groundbreaking natural-history film that captures for the first time the highly endangered pandas breeding at the Bifengxia Panda Base, and being prepared for release back into the wild at Wolong National Nature Reserve, both in the People’s Republic of China.

The filmmakers were given unrivaled access to the Wolong National Nature Reserve with the support of the Chinese Wildlife Conservation Association and the China Conservation and Research Centre for the Giant Panda. The film invites audiences to witness the birth, nursery care and teaching of panda cubs—all part of an extraordinary effort to save the panda in the wild.

Pandas 3D: The Journey Home follows the pandas at what could be a make-or-break milestone in their history and in the history of conservation itself. After decades of successful captive breeding, the reserve has hit its target number of 300 giant pandas and now must tackle the challenge of reintroducing breeding populations of the species to the wild.

“Pandas aren’t hopeless animals that deserve to go extinct,” Producer Caroline Hawkins says. “They are actually incredibly complex and fascinating creatures. Not only will ‘Pandas: The Journey Home’ show audiences the strides that have been made toward saving the panda in the wild, but it will also help them better understand and appreciate these iconic, beloved and charismatic creatures. They are more than just cute and cuddly animals to see in the zoo. They have a place in the wild and in the ecosystem.”

The film went on to win six Academy Awards including Best Actor (Tom Hanks) and Best Director and grossed more than $675 million at the global box office.

"As a ground-breaking achievement in both cinematography and visual effects for its time, 'Forrest Gump' has become a modern movie classic," said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment.

"On behalf of the entire 'Forrest Gump' family, it is with great pleasure and pride that we bring 'Forrest Gump' back to the big screen using the latest technology for the ultimate IMAX experience," said producer Wendy Finerman.

*HIGH FRAME RATE (48FPS)**

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

** What is High Frame Rate 3D (HFR 3D)?
Frame rates are the number of images (or frames) displayed by a projector in one second. 24 frames per second (fps) is the current standard in cinemas (including IMAX) worldwide. HFR 3D is another format option that presents the movie in 48 frames per second (fps), which is reported to be closer to what the human eye can actually see. This format was available for the first Hobbit movie released 2012 and IMAX Melbourne screened the second Hobbit installment in 2013 which proved far more popular than the non-HFR 1570 presentation. Because of this, the third and final installment will only be screening in HFR 3D.

Ok then, we'd like to state from the absolute outset the following fact that should come as no surprise - we LOVE Chris Nolan. Yes we love the fact that his films do so well in IMAX, but aside from that minor (ahem) point, what truly excites us is his dedication to shooting on film and his passion for shooting major scenes using IMAX cameras. Mr Nolan creates what is simply the greatest visual cinema experience that one can have in this day & age. Think about the first time you saw the opening set piece for The Dark Knight or The Dark Knight Rises - absolutely goose-bump inducing stuff my friends, in fact we cannot even tell you how many times we escaped from the offices down to the theatre to watch those opening scenes again and again, such was the impact. When was the last time you watched INCEPTION? Ok, it's not shot with IMAX cameras, but the film is a both a visual and mental masterpiece - a thinking man's (or woman's) block buster that translates so well onto the giant IMAX screen.

It's exactly these experiences that make us revere Chris Nolan so much, and why we are so excited about his forthcoming INTERSTELLAR in November. But if you can't quite wait that long then we have a your Chris Nolan big screen fix sorted with the following Chris Nolan IMAX films screening in the lead up to INTERSTELLAR and all on glorious IMAX 1570 Film!

Click on each film title for more information on each film.

All tickets for each of the titles above are at 'Special Event Pricing' which means $20 for individual films and $45 for the Dark Knight Trilogy. Tickets will be on sale late September / early October.

Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

Director James Gunn - 'As an exra benefit for those who see the film in IMAX 3D, we will be changing the aspect ratios throughout the film in a way that makes the experience even fuller and more encompassing. I've personally chosen all the places where the changes occur and I love how it's coming along. The changing aspect ratios in this case are actually part of the storytelling.'

CLICK HERE to watch Director James Gunn talking about why you need to see Guardians of the Galaxy in IMAX 3D.

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

*Select key sequences will be presented in a 1.9:1 aspect ratio (the ratio of the image width to the image height) rather than the 2.40:1 for the conventional release. This aspect ratio is optimised to take advantage of the taller IMAX screen (with the on-screen image height expanding from approx. 11m to 15m) - offering moviegoers 26% more of the image than standard cinemas.

Filmed for the first time in 3D and for the giant screen, JERUSALEM immerses audiences into one of the world's most beloved cities. Discover why this tiny piece of land is sacred to three major religions through the stories of Jewish, Christian and Muslim families who call Jerusalem home. Join renowned archaeologist, Dr. Jodi Magness, as she travels underground to solve some of this city’s greatest mysteries.
 
Find out why, after thousands of years, Jerusalem and the Holy Land continue to stir the imagination of billions of people. Unprecedented access to the city's holiest sites, as well as rare and breathtaking aerial footage of the Old City and the Holy Land, combine to make JERUSALEM a unique and stunning cinematic experience.

Film Makers Statement
Jerusalem stirs passions so deep and its role in Western civilization is so pivotal that we as filmmakers felt moved to bring this city to the world through the beauty and power of the giant screen.

'Our goal is to look at the roots of the universal attachment to Jerusalem: Jewish, Christian and Muslim. We hope the juxtaposition of these different religions and cultures – all with profound spiritual and historical connections to the city – will reveal how much Jews, Christians and Muslims have in common and inspire all of us to better understand each other.
 
Our film is not about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It embraces the idea that Jerusalem is many cities: imagined and real; past and present; Jewish, Christian, Muslim and secular. We are trying to answer the question: Why Jerusalem? What is it about this tiny space that made it the ultimate prize of empires and the object of longing for so many different cultures over thousands of years?
 
We believe that the power of the images and stories in JERUSALEM will allow our audience a unique window into the lives of others. Every stone in Jerusalem has many stories. It is the collective power of all these stories that makes the city so endearing to billions of people.
 
- Producers Taran Davies, George Duffield, & Daniel Ferguson

This cosmic drama plays out in one of Earth’s last great wildernesses, amid steep mountain ranges and windblown plains half buried beneath snow and ice.

The epic action of Edge of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.
 
But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important conflict has been within himself:  the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man.  But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise Of Electro, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin.
 
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield).  For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone).  But being Spider-Man comes at a price:  only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city.  With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he.  And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realise that all of his enemies have one thing in common:  Oscorp.

Unseen World 3D is Exempt from Classification*

Watch Director Louie Schwartzberg's recent TED talk about Unseen World 3D - HERE

Unseen World 3D takes audiences on an almost unbelievable journey into unseen worlds and hidden dimensions beyond our normal vision to uncover the mysteries of things too fast, too slow, too small or simply invisible, revealing phenomena  secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale.

Experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; "see” the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena that occur in the flash of a microsecond; enter a microscopic world once reserved for scientists, but now made accessible to the rest of us; and begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is to see on Earth.

High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements that allow us to see a universe of things, events, creatures, and processes we never even knew existed. These technologies give us new “superpowers” to see beyond what's in front of us.

Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Unseen World 3D will leave audiences in thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can’t see—a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute by minute and nanosecond by nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.

4 out of 4 stars!

For many years the Monarch Butterfly, beautiful, fragile and a true marvel of nature, lay at the centre of an age old mystery; where did they go when they flew south each year?  As a young boy living near Toronto in the 1920’s, Dr Fred Urquhart wondered this very same thing as he witnessed the beginning of this incredible journey every autumn.  He could never have dreamt that each year, these monarchs joined millions of others on an extraordinary migration south to a remote and distant hideaway, and that this very question would lead him on a 40 year quest to find the answer.

Flight Of The Butterflies documents the largest and most incredible migration on earth; half a billion monarch butterflies traversing a continent and travelling over 5000 kilometers each year to hibernate, mate and lay eggs.  With pinpoint accuracy they navigate across North America and Mexico, following the warm weather and food supply in order to produce the next generation of Monarchs and continue this extraordinary cycle.

From the grassy Texas hills, to the flower gardens of Canada and the mountains of Mexico, soar alongside one of the greatest spectacles of the natural world and join us in amazing IMAX as we follow the Flight Of The Butterflies.

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years - and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) - a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit - is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

*HIGH FRAME RATE (48FPS)**

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” the second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all — a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself — the Dragon Smaug.

The IMAX release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

** What is High Frame Rate 3D (HFR 3D)?
Frame rates are the number of images (or frames) displayed by a projector in one second. 24 frames per second (fps) is the current standard in cinemas (including IMAX) worldwide. HFR 3D is another format option that presents the movie in 48 frames per second (fps),  which is reported to be closer to what the human eye can actually see. This format was available for the first Hobbit movie released last year and received mixed response - some loving and other loathing it (we encourage you to do your own research). Nevertheless, IMAX Melbourne had many requests to screen The Hobbit in HFR 3D hence this format will be available for limited sessions.

Space Station 3D will be presented in IMAX DIGITAL

As astoundingly beautiful as it is technically dazzling, SPACE STATION is the first-ever IMAX 3D space film.  Audiences will travel 220 miles above Earth at 17,500 mph to experience SPACE STATION - the greatest engineering feat since landing a man on the Moon.

SPACE STATION is the story of this unique partnership of 16 nations building a laboratory in outer space -- a permanent facility for the study of the effects of long-duration exposure to zero gravity and the necessary first step towards the global co-operative effort needed if man is to someday set foot on Mars.  It is a story of challenges, setbacks and triumphs…and ultimately, the shared international victory of men and women whose dreams exceed the limits of life on this Earth. 

SPACE STATION is the first cinematic journey to the International Space Station (ISS), where audiences can experience for themselves life in zero gravity aboard the new station.  Transported by the magic of the IMAX® 3D technology, the audience blasts off into space with the astronauts and cosmonauts from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center and Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome to rendezvous with their new home in orbit 220 miles above Earth.  Now people of every age and language can work side by side with their space-walking crewmates, building and inhabiting this unprecedented structure in space.

SPACE STATION is produced and directed by Toni Myers and narrated by Tom Cruise.  The Director of Photography and Astronaut Training is James Neihouse.  The music is by Micky Erbe and Maribeth Solomon.  The Associate Producer is Judy Carroll and the Consulting Producer is Graeme Ferguson.

The BIGGEST BAND, The BIGGEST SCREEN - 3D HAS NEVER FELT THIS HEAVY!

"IMAX! It doesn't get bigger or cooler than that!" said Lars Ulrich who formed Metallica in 1981 together with James Hetfield. "For four guys in a rock band of average height, to get a chance to unleash their 3D film on IMAX screens the size of buildings across the country is a mind-blowing thought. 'Hey look, Mom, I'm 50 feet tall (finally!)' There is no better way to experience film and when you throw in the spectacle of music and sound this should amount to an unprecedented, unique and truly next level experience."

 Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Metallica Through the Never is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica's roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.

The IMAX release of Metallica Through the Never will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

"(Gravity) offers the kind of theoretically game-changing theatrical experience that absolutely demands theatrical viewing on the biggest 3D IMAX screen you can find.... I cannot imagine a more fantastic and thrilling movie going experience." - Scott Mendleson, Forbes magazine

"An awe-inspiring achievement, a towering slice of cinematic splendour that astounds and terrifies in equal measure." - Jordan Farley, SFX Magazine

"This isn't just the best-looking film of the year, it's one of the most awe-inspiring achievements in the history of special-effects cinema." - Tom Huddleston, Time Out

Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in “Gravity,” a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space.  The film was directed by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”). Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring.  But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes.  The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.

The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue.  As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

The IMAX release of Gravity will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

Great White Shark 3D will be presented in IMAX 1570 FILM

Great White Shark 3D take you up close and personal with the world's most iconic predator! Great White Shark, a new large format film, unravels the mystery of the creature we love to fear — the much maligned, misrepresented and misunderstood great white shark — and goes to the depths of human daring to tell the true story of its role atop the oceanic food chain.  

Three years in the making, Great White Shark takes viewers around the world to great white hotspots: the crystal clear waters of Mexico’s legendary Guadalupe Island; newly-discovered shark territory around Stewart Island off the southernmost tip of New Zealand; the bone-chilling waters of South Africa’s “flying” great whites; and finally to the California coast near heavily-populated Los Angeles. The film examines what we know about these incredible animals through the eyes of several people whose lives and work have become inextricably linked to the great white.   Using revolutionary high-speed, digital IMAX cameras in South Africa, filmmakers captured the great white breaching for the first time in 3D.

“Our mission is to change people’s attitudes toward the great white” said Steve McNicholas, co-director of the film. “It’s not the menacing, evil predator it’s made out to be. It’s simply performing its crucial role at the top of the ocean’s food chain. Great whites are not monsters any more than the polar bears or lions that we revere.”

The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

Titans of the Ice Age 3D will be presented in IMAX 1570 FILM

Titans of the Ice Age 3D transports viewers to the beautiful and otherworldy frozen landscapes of North America, Europe and Asia ten thousand years before modern civilization. 

Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life - from saber-toothed cats and cave bears to dire wolves and woolly mammoths - giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans.  

The Ice Age marks a dynamic chapter in the development of the human spirit, a great test of survival, a "trial by ice" that would compel our ancestors to seek understanding and meaning in nature.  These inventions and discoveries - art, language, clothing, the taming of fire - born of the Pleistocene, were tools that defined and civilized the human species.  

Ironically, our spirit of ingenuity and survival instincts would ultimately provide us with the power and knowledge to alter the very forces of nature that once shaped our existence.  And the consequences, from species devastation to global warming, have become the great challenges in the modern era.  

The Ice Age takes a thoughtful look at the relationships between the Earth, her resources and inhabitants, and our role in a changing world.  As the planet now warms by our own hand, jeopardizing thousands of species, how can we tap into the same great human capacity for innovation to solve today's emerging threats?

With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.

Top Gun 3D will be presented in IMAX DIGITAL

Ride into the Danger Zone... this time in stunning IMAX 3D!  

TOP GUN, Paramount Pictures’ 1986 classic from director Tony Scott, producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, and starring Tom Cruise, takes off on a new adventure with an exclusive TWO WEEK 3D season at IMAX Melbourne Museum, beginning March 21, 2013.  

For an iconic movie like Top Gun, we don’t need to explain the plot..  It’s enough to say that hotshot pilot Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell (Tom Cruise - pre Scientology and TomKat), has some daddy issues, a major chip on his shoulder and an attitude problem, but is a supremely talented pilot.  27 years later, Mr Cruise is still a draw card in one of his iconic roles on the big screen... and is still writing cheques his body can’t cash.  Cue iconic movie lines, 80’s kitch, over the top beats AND show it on the BIG screen....? There’s no better way to relive the glory! 

Maverick, Goose and Ice-Man, the best of the best, dog-fighting it out at IMAX for TWO WEEKS ONLY!

TOP GUN was re-mastered for the big screen from high-resolution original negative scans and painstakingly converted to 3D by Legend3D under the supervision of the film’s director, Tony Scott.  Rendered in 3D, the film’s complex, long shots reveal extraordinary depth and clarity, allowing viewers to explore every detail of the action.  From the spectacular aerial dogfights to the intense close-ups in the cockpits, each frame enables the audience to feel a part of the story.

Returns for March Monster Movie Mayhem! (at mini-monster prices) - Select Limited Screenings from Saturday March 22nd!

With his remastering of the epic into a state-of-the-art 3D format, Spielberg introduces the three-time Academy Award® winning blockbuster to a new generation of moviegoers and allows longtime fans to experience the world he envisioned in a way that was unimaginable during the film’s original release.

Jurassic Park 3D follows two dinosaur experts - Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler - as they are invited by eccentric millionaire John Hammond to preview his new amusement park on an island off Costa Rica. By cloning DNA harvested from pre-historic insects, Hammond has been able to create living dinosaurs for his new Jurassic Park, an immense animal preserve housing real brachiosaurs, dilophosaurs, triceratops, velociraptors, and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. 

Accompanied by cynical scientist Ian Malcolm, who is obsessed with chaos theory, and Hammond's two grandchildren, they are sent on a tour through Hammond's new resort in computer controlled touring cars. But as a tropical storm hits the island, knocking out the power supply, and an unscrupulous employee sabotages the system so that he can smuggle dinosaur embryos out of the park, the dinosaurs start to rage out of control.  Grant then has to bring Hammond's grandchildren back to safety as the group is pursued by the gigantic, prehistoric man-eating beasts.

Exclusive to IMAX! See the first 9mins of the upcoming STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS in IMAX 3D - preceeding each screening of Oz The Great and Powerful 3D from March 7 to March 20.

Oz The Great and Powerful imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.

The IMAX release of Oz The Great and Powerful will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.

But even the Jaegers proved almost defenceless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.  On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

“Phenomenal IMAX 3D visuals…neatly balances entertainment and education. Bound to fascinate" - Variety – October 8, 2012

“It is thought that Flight of the Butterflies 3D … could do for butterflies what the feature documentary March of the Penguins did for penguins” - The Guardian UK – September 22, 2012

For many years the Monarch Butterfly, beautiful, fragile and a true marvel of nature, lay at the centre of an age old mystery; where did they go when they flew south each year?  As a young boy living near Toronto in the 1920’s, Dr Fred Urquhart wondered this very same thing as he witnessed the beginning of this incredible journey every autumn.  He could never have dreamt that each year, these monarchs joined millions of others on an extraordinary migration south to a remote and distant hideaway, and that this very question would lead him on a 40 year quest to find the answer. 

Flight Of The Butterflies 3D documents the largest and most incredible migration on earth; half a billion monarch butterflies traversing a continent and travelling over 5000 kilometers each year to hibernate, mate and lay eggs.  With pinpoint accuracy they navigate across North America and Mexico, following the warm weather and food supply in order to produce the next generation of Monarchs and continue this extraordinary cycle.

From the grassy Texas hills, to the flower gardens of Canada and the mountains of Mexico, soar alongside one of the greatest spectacles of the natural world and join us in amazing IMAX 3D as we follow the Flight Of The Butterflies.

Fly across iridescent tropical reefs, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see. Shot on location in Palau, Vancouver Island, French Polynesia, Mexico, and The Bahamas, The Last Reef 3D takes us on a global journey to explore our connection with the ocean’s complex, parallel worlds. New underwater 3D technology takes us into the heart of the reef, revealing a habitat more diverse and more colorful than you ever imagined!

The Last Reef 3D showcases the magnificence of coral reefs around the world, whilst highlighting the first hand effects of agriculture and industry on our life sustaining oceans.We think of reefs as exotic, distant places with little or no connection to our everyday world. Yet every reef is a living city beneath the sea with a parallel existence to ours, distant yet undeniably connected to our every day lives.

Reefs are hotspots of biodiversity as vital to life on earth as the rain-forests. They have been shaping our shorelines, literally forming islands and mountains, for millions of years.  With incredible capacity to regenerate, the fossil record shows that given time they have recovered from all of earth’s major extinction events.  Even reefs pulverised by atomic blasts at Bikini Atoll have regenerated.

Yet within our lifetime, reefs have come to face their greatest threat. With 300 tons of anthropogenic carbon dioxide dissolving into the sea every second, the coral, shell and bone that makes up the worlds reefs are beginning to crumble as our oceans become more acidic.  This ocean acidification is causing reefs to vanish at an alarming rate; 90% of Caribbean reefs have already disappeared with scientists now predicting all the world’s coral reefs could be gone within our lifetime...

“In order to fully take advantage of the IMAX experience, the IMAX 3D presentation will feature a larger aspect ratio in select sequences which will fully immerse fans into the world of Spider-Man, leading into a finale that will blow you away.” - Marc Webb, Director of The Amazing Spiderman 3D.

The Amazing Spider-Man tells the story of Peter Parker, an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today, whilst at the same time finding his way with his first high school crush.

As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors, his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditco, The Amazing Spiderman stars Andrew Garfield (as Spider-Man/Peter Parker), Emma Stone (as Gwen Stacy), Rhys Ifans (as Dr Curt Connors) with Martin Sheen and Sally Field (Uncle Ben and Aunt May) and is directed by Mark Webb.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is an IMAX 3D Presentation. 

Filmed as a fantasy trilogy, all three hobbit movies are once again set in Middle-earth, 60 years before Frodo’s adventures in Lord Of The Rings.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Dec 2012), follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs, Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. But it is whilst escaping the goblin tunnels on the way to the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain that Bilbo meets the creature Gollum, who will change his life forever. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake the unassuming Bilbo not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious”, a ring that holds unexpected qualities tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot even begin to know.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (the second film) is scheduled for release in Dec 2013, with the final installment - The Hobbit: There and Back Again, to be released in July 2014.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be presented in regular 24 frames per second at IMAX Melbourne.

Return to TITANIC and experience it like never before in IMAX 3D!

On April 15th 2012, precisely a century after the historic ship's sinking and 15 years after the original theatrical release, Oscar Winning Director James Cameron's Titanic resurfaces in IMAX, in state of the art 3D.

A fictionalized account of the sinking, Titanic 3D tells the story of Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio), Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet), members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ship during her ill-fated maiden voyage and share a connection that neither social convention nor the ferocious power of nature could tear asunder.

“My goal in making this film was to show not only the dramatic death of this infamous ship, but her brief and glorious life as well.   (It is) to capture the beauty, exuberance, optimism and hope of Titanic, her passengers and crew and, in the process of baring the dark side of humanity underlying this tragedy, celebrate the limitless potential of the human spirit.  For Titanic is not just a cautionary tale – a myth, a parable, a metaphor for all the ills of mankind.  It is also a story of faith, courage, sacrifice, and above all else, love”.  James Cameron, Oscar winning Director and Producer, Titanic and Titanic 3D

Upon its original release in 1997, Titanic was celebrated for transporting audiences back in time, right into the belly of the R.M.S Titanic in all her glory and into the heart of a forbidden love affair entwined with the ship's epic collision with human arrogance, nature and fate.  The original movie held Box Office records that stood until Cameron’s Avatar 3D  broke them.  And now, the leading edge of 3D conversion technology has allowed Cameron to return movie goers to Titanic, in the most visceral and dynamic screen experience of the story yet imagined.

Limited re-release, season ends November 4th.

Ridley Scott, director of 'Alien' and 'Blade Runner,' returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a yet another groundbreaking mythology in which a team of select individuals explore an advanced alien civilisation in search of the origins of humanity.

What we know so far...

Little is known about Prometheus' plotline, but what we can share with you, is that similar to Ridley Scott’s original ‘Alien’ (1979) it is for the most part set in space. The name "Prometheus" is that of a space vessel that is used by a crew of select individuals who set off to explore and investigate fragments of alien DNA.
As per the original Alien, Prometheus revolves around the Space Jockey creature; and when a team of scientists embarks on this particular journey they get stranded on an alien world which tests both their mental and physical limits. Prometheus is also largely based on the creation of mankind, life and the Earth. As a team of explorers comprised of scientists, company representatives and robots discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, they are lead on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe, where they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Does Prometheus share strands of Alien's DNA...?? Check out the clues HERE 

See more Prometheus at IMAX!
Exclusive to IMAX, Prometheus will feature a larger aspect ratio of 2.0:1 as opposed to the traditional 2.39:1 ratio. What does this mean? This aspect ratio is optimized to take advantage of the giant IMAX screen, allowing you to see MORE of the image then anywhere else.

Kangaroos bound majestically across the plains, thorny devils scamper comically through the spinifex and koala families take siestas, lounging together atop their eucalyptus perches. Exotic rainforests and cascading waterfalls also are counted among our continent's hidden treasures.
Tracing the four-billion-year journey of the southern continent, Australia: Land Beyond Time explores the lavish richness, diversity and uniqueness of Australia's life, life that survived and evolved during the most challenging of voyages.
It brings to the giant screen animals that hop instead of run, creatures that have fur yet lay eggs, ants that plant seeds, plants that were the food of dinosaurs and water birds that fly inland to breed only every few years when sporadic rains come.
Through the most ingenious strategies, the film shows how life has managed to flourish on impoverished soils, where flood and drought go hand-in-hand. In breathtaking large-format imagery, it surveys some of the most surreal and fascinating landscapes on Earth ­ from ancient, eroded sea beds and vibrant, red sand dunes that merge with far horizons to the jeweled sea of its immense coral reef. Australia is a remarkable journey through time.
This movie is an opportunity to travel to some of the most remote regions of the continent, places that very few Australians have ever visited. See fascinating sites, including Lake Eyre filled with water - an event that only happens about twice every century.

HURRY LAST DAYS!

It’s fair to say they rock.  You could also say they roll.  They sometimes even go off the rails…but there’s no doubt about it The Rolling Stones are one of the greatest rock bands the world has ever seen. 

Join us as we bring the legends of rock back to IMAX with the relaunch of Rolling Stones At The Max.  The first ever feature length concert movie to be shot using IMAX cameras, it is a showcase of the group with their cult like following as they rock out on stage, doing it in the way that only they can.

Filmed over five nights in July and August 1990 during the final leg of the Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle tour, Rolling Stones To The Max captures the euphoria of the live event as Jagger, Richards, Woods and Watts blast out 16 of the best live on stage.   As expected the concert has it all; grandeous and expensive props,  explosive fireworks, a hysterical crowd and the high energy, frenetic antics of Mick Jagger as he jumps and gyrates across the stage.   All of it captured on the giant IMAX screen.

The Rolling Stones appeal is universal, their sound their own and their story unique.  And unless you can see them live, there’s no better way than at IMAX Melbourne Museum!

Set within a year after the events of Batman Begins, Batman, Lieutenant James Gordon, and new district attorney Harvey Dent successfully begin to dismantle the remaining criminal organisations that plague Gotham City.  But a new threat emerges with the rising of a psychopathic criminal known only as ‘The Joker’ (Heath Ledger), whose eerie grin, laughter, and inhuman morality makes him even more dangerous than the wave of crime he is about to unleash.  This mysterious and sadistic criminal mastermind creates a new wave of chaos and drives Batman and the city of Gotham to its limits.

However, after his mother and father are murdered b a mugger, Wayne grows into an impudent young man, full of rage and bent on retribution until encouraged by his childhood sweetheart, Rachel Dawes (Katie Holmes), to search for answers beyond his own personal vendettas.

Wayne eventually finds discipline in the Far East under the tutelage of Henri Ducard (Liam Neeson), a member of the mysterious League of Shadows who guides him in the study of martial arts - and the ways in which an ordinary man can hone his senses to an almost superhuman acuity. After seven years away from Gotham, Wayne returns, determined to bring peace and safety back to the city. With the help of his faithful manservant, Alfred Pennyworth (Michael Caine), and Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), a scientist at his late father's corporation, Wayne develops a secret identity as Batman, a masked fighter for justice. But when a shady psychiatrist (Cillian Murphy) joins forces with the criminal underworld, Wayne realizes that putting an end to their nefarious plans will be very difficult indeed.

Featuring 72 minutes of footage filmed with IMAX cameras, IMAX Melbourne Museum is the only way to experience The Dark Knight Rises. Including IMAX Melbourne, only 102 giant screen IMAX theatres in the world will screen The Dark Knight Rises on the epic scale director Chris Nolan intended...

"Having shot almost half the picture with large-format IMAX film cameras, it is very important to me that we show 'The Dark Knight Rises' in the IMAX film format wherever possible. Audiences everywhere should be assured that every presentation of the film will be of the highest standard—having benefited from the clarity and depth IMAX cameras offer. However, these 102 screens will showcase the original IMAX film photography in its optimum form, and I hope anyone who has an opportunity to experience the film in these theatres will seek it out." Christopher Nolan, writer, producer, director The Dark Knight Rises.

In the years following Batman's absence, Gotham City experiences a time of peace thanks to Harvey Dent's inspiration and good reputation.  However, a new threat has risen with plans to destroy Gotham City from within and taint the good name of Harvey Dent's memory, in the form of the bone crushing, skull cracking, spine ripping master villain ‘Bane’.

When the Gotham police force fails to capture this new terrorist, Commissioner Gordon seeks for Batman to return, and Bruce Wayne must once again become the caped crusader to take on the ultimate villain.

“(Bane is) He’s brutal. Brutal. He’s a big dude who’s incredibly clinical, in the fact that he has a result-based and oriented fighting style. It’s not about fighting. It’s about carnage. The style is heavy-handed, heavy-footed, it’s nasty. Anything from small-joint manipulation to crushing skulls, crushing rib cages, stamping on shins and knees and necks and collarbones and snapping heads off and tearing his fists through chests, ripping out spinal columns. He is a terrorist mentality as well as in brutal action.” Tom Hardy, Empire Magazine, 2011
