"Mad Max: Fury Road" is a post-apocalyptic action story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There's Max (played by Tom Hardy from "The Dark Knight Rises"), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And… Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron from "Prometheus"), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone.  Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa.  They are escaping a Citadel tyrannised by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken.  Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

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 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

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.”

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.

SPECIALLY FORMATTED FOR IMAX! Guardians of the Galaxy 3D director James Gunn has chosen select key action sequences to 'open up' in IMAX. Exclusively in IMAX® theatres, the major sequences will expand to fill more of the IMAX screen*, providing moviegoers with even greater scope, breathtaking image quality and stunningly immersive 3D visuals, for a truly unrivalled cinema experience.

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.

Jerusalem 3D is Exempt from Classification*

MIFF Official Selection logo

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

Why Choose IMAX? | IMAX Melbourne

Why Choose IMAX? | IMAX Melbourne

Why Choose IMAX?

The IMAX Experience differs significantly from watching a movie in a normal multiplex cinema, here are 5 x main reasons why you should experience a movie at IMAX Melbourne:

  1. Screen Size: Bigger is most definitely better when it comes to experiencing the latest movie blockbusters, and there's not too many screens bigger than the IMAX one here in Melburne. IMAX Melbourne hosts the world’s 3rd largest screen (measuring 32m in width by 23m in height - although how much of this canvas is used depends on the film maker and projecton method - click for more info), and it's this unrivaled scale allows viewers to be transported right into the action.

  2. Theatre Geometry:  It’s not just the large screen that makes a difference, it’s the shape of the auditorium and how the seats are placed.  Many movie auditoriums are long and narrow, to get the most people in, with the screen way off at the far end.  The distinctive shape of an IMAX theatre is designed to bring the audience not only closer to the screen, but better-positioned in relation to it.  The result is an image that’s wider and higher than your field of view, giving you the feeling you’re part of the action – not just watching it.

  3. Digital Remastering: The image out of our projector is only as good as the quality of the content going into it. The secret sauce in the IMAX mix is DMR – or Digital Re-mastering – a transformative proprietary process that turns an already powerful movie into a breathtaking IMAX blockbuster with unparalleled image and sound quality. IMAX spends months on location and in the editing room with the director and technical teams of each film – meticulously adjusting the saturation, contrast, brightness and hundreds of details in virtually every frame in order to present the movie at its best.

  4. IMAX Sound:  A surprisingly large part of the IMAX experience is the sound.  That’s what makes an IMAX movie visceral. You don’t just see a movie in IMAX, you feel it in your bones. One reason is the sheer power of the custom, patented 15,000 watt speaker system in an IMAX theatre. Another is the wider frequency response – which means higher highs and lows so low they’re as much vibrations as sounds. The customised theatre geometry also plays its part here as sound is also affected by the room in which the listener sits and as such the theatre is designed as much around the sound output as the on-screen visuals.

  5. IMAX 3D: The difference between IMAX 3D and regular 3D is as vast as the difference between an IMAX movie and an ordinary one.  3D requires two images – one for the left eye and one for the right eye – to be projected onto the screen at the same time. Whereas most multiplex cinemas utilise one projector to do this, alternating the projection of each eye’s image, IMAX uses two projectors – one dedicated to each eye, ensuring unsurpassed brightness and clarity. Almost all 3D cinemas in multiplexes are compromised in their design, as they are retrofitted 2D cinemas.  IMAX Melbourne was designed and purpose built as a 3D theatre from the outset, ensuring only the highest quality 3D experience no matter where you’re seated.

IMAX offers what is simply the finest movie going experience on offer - it's the only choice that discerning movie goers need to make. But please don't take our word for it, come and experience it for yourself, we hope to see you here soon!

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.

Space Station 3D

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.

Season must finish Monday October 28 - strictly limited sessions - do not miss this event in IMAX 3D!

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. 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.

"(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. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will immerse audiences within the movie.

Great White Shark 3D

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.”

Runtime: 45 minutes

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

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?

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.

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

IMAX moviegoers will see up to 26% more of the image on screen in Pacific Rim! The IMAX presentation of Pacific Rim will be specially formatted to feature a larger aspect ratio (the ratio of the image width to the image height) than the conventional release for the entirety of the film. This aspect ratio (1.90:1 presentation vs. a 2.40:1 presentation), which is optimised to take advantage of the IMAX screen, will allow you to see more of the image and result in a full panorama of the action – further immersing you into the vast scale and scope of the film and providing an up-close, you-are-there experience that can’t be missed.

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.

The IMAX release of Pacific Rim 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 customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will immerse audiences within the movie.

Several key sections of the film that feature big action set pieces have been captured with IMAX cameras, which have become an integral tool for visionary filmmakers to tell their amazing stories.  Exclusively in IMAX, sequences shot with the extremely high-resolution cameras will expand to fill the entire screen and further immerse audiences in the vast dimension and adventure of this highly-anticipated follow-up.

 4 out of 4 stars!

“A MUST SEE 3D IMAX JOURNEY…a feast for the eyes and one of the best IMAX documentaries" -  Seattle Times – October 20, 2012

“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.

The Last Reef 3D

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...

Australia Land Beyond Time

2015 Availability: Term 1,2 & 3 only

With its endless coastline and vast expanses of red, sandy desert, our continent, seemingly unaffected by time, harbours unique inhabitants and dramatic scenery.
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.

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."

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

Back on the big screen as part of the NOLANATHON IMAX FILM FESTIVAL!

Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Director: The Dark Knight) directs an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. 

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction: stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. 

Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption; one last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible - inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse; their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move; an enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

"The images deserve to be untarnished by much explanation - you should see them for yourself and on the biggest screen you can - it's coming to IMAX - book now" Empire Magazine

"Inception is a masterpiece....Nolan has created a massive, immersive and complete visual experience. I actually can't wait to see this movie again but (this time) in IMAX, to be completely enveloped in the universe that Nolan has created" Chud.com

With National Geographic's trademark combination of scientific excellence, dramatic storytelling skill and human emotion, Forces of Nature will showcase the awesome spectacle of earthquakes, volcanoes and severe storms as we follow scientists on their quest to understand how their origins and how natural disasters are triggered.
Visit the island of Montserrat where volcanoes have been erupting for nearly a decade and meet a volcanologist searching for clues that might foretell future eruptions.
Halfway around the world in Istanbul we meet a geophysicist who is studying the deadliest of all natural disasters: earthquakes.  In 1999 residents of Izmit, Turkey, awoke in horror to experience an earthquake 7.4 on the Richter Scale, lasting 48 seconds. With the aid of the giant IMAX screen, witness the violence of the earthquake as floors buckles, walls begin to cave in and dust explodes everywhere.
Finally, join a meteorologist in pursuit of an elusive yet deadly force of nature; tornadoes. Understanding exactly how a tornado is formed may enable meteorologists to predict their occurrence with enough lead-time to save people at risk. For several minutes, witness a severe tornado ripping across the plains of South Dakota.  No lives are lost in this occurrence, but several homes lie in the path of the tornado and we experience with humble amazement the extraordinary, destructive power of nature's fury.

Bugs! 3D is a live-action nature drama filmed in awe inspiring, totally immersive IMAX 3D.  Shot on location in Borneo and in a purpose-built studio in Oxford, England, Bugs! 3D explores the dramatic and savage lives of an Old World praying mantis and a beautiful butterfly, known by their Latin names, Hierodula and Papilio.
Hierodula and Papilio are born in the same part of the exotic Borneo rainforest, their home is the foliage around an abandoned and dilapidated shack on the edge of the river. Here, we witness Hierodula and Papilio mature and grow. Hierodula develops by incomplete metamorphosis; emerging from his egg as a mini-mantis and shedding his skin regularly on the way to gaining his adult wings. Papilio goes through a complete metamorphosis, from caterpillar to butterfly via the pupal stage.
As they develop we meet a fascinating array of creatures who share their habitat. After many near misses, the hunter, Hierodula, acting on instinct, catches Papilio.  But in an uplifting ending we discover that Papilio had managed to lay her eggs before being caught, and the film ends with her offspring emerging from her tiny egg to continue the circle of life.
From metamorphosis to mastery, predator to prey and community to concealment, extraordinary large-format 3D images will bring the audience face-to-face with this amazing universe of creatures. Bugs! 3D will magnify the miniscule world of insects and explore the miracle of their success.

Billions of people have lived on Earth, but only a few hundred have seen it as it appears in space, suspended like a bright jewel in the vast black void.  In Blue Planet experience a view of our global home as only astronauts can.   Trained to operate the large format IMAX cameras, astronauts from five space shuttle missions have brought back stunning images of the Earth in transition. See a breathtaking earthrise as it fills the giant screen, shimmering blue and majestic in the blackness of space. See a living atlas, as images that follow the curvature of the Earth reveal the landforms recognised from our geography books.
See the familiar shapes of India and Sri Lanka, the Big Island of Hawaii showing what volcanoes can create.  Travel high above the Great Rift Valley of Africa, and the broad Serengeti plain and upon a closer look meet the many species that live there.  View tropical storms as tiny flashing lights from space, but acting violently at ground level. View the plates that make up the earth’s crust and witness what can happen when these plates decide to move.
In Blue Planet see firsthand the most powerful force on earth; causing silt flooded rivers, shrinking lakes and glaciers, expanding deserts, burning rainforests and the smog filled air.   We humans are that force, and the IMAX camera shows us the damage the ever increasing human population is inflicting.
From this most unique vantage point Blue Planet will show you earth, our one and only home as you have never seen it before.

Antarctica

Rated: G
General
Closed Caption Runtime: 45 minutes

Antarctica takes viewers on an epic adventure to places unknown, seemingly unattainable and beyond imagination, allowing them to vividly experience what life is really like on the planet's largest, driest desert.
This is a totally immersive cinema experience like no other, bringing Antarctica to its viewers in spectacular dimensions on the world's 3rd largest screen.
The icy chasms and towering glacial peaks become the landscape for a breathtaking aerial journey. Join the first humans to swim through crystalline caverns submerged within the Chaos Glacier; or drop through a weakened snow bridge into the jaws of a dark and deadly crevasse.
From the South Pole watch the sun make its daily trip around the world without ever dipping below the horizon.
The sight of emperor penguins perform an enthralling underwater ballet below the ice cap makes for some truly memorable cinematic moments that linger in the mind long after the film has finished.

Return to Pandora and see the ground breaking 3D special effects on the giant IMAX screen..

“Our goal with Avatar is to revolutionize live-action 3D moviemaking, and I have no doubt that it will look and sound incredible in IMAX 3D. The larger field of view and powerful surround sound of an IMAX theatre will completely immerse the audience in a way that cannot be experienced anywhere else.” James Cameron, Director.

When his brother is killed in a robbery, paraplegic Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge's intentions of driving off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na'vi people with the use of an "avatar" identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand - and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.
