Space Station 3D IMAX film
is out of this world!
Film debuts nationally mid April
Tenn. (March 5, 2002) - It's T minus 2 and counting. On April
20, we'll have lift off when Space Station opens at the Tennessee
Aquarium IMAX 3D ® Theater. Launched as one of the most
challenging engineering feats ever, this IMAX adventure takes
audiences on an incredible journey of discovery from the Kennedy
Space Center to the International Space Station. Orbiting
at speeds of 17,500 mph some 220 miles above Earth, viewers
feel like they're floating in space.
Captured in 3D and narrated by Tom Cruise, this film transports
audiences directly to the space station, the first major international
outpost in space. Cameras catch stunning views of the entire
International Space Station in 3D, with its golden solar arrays
outstretched majestically against the backdrop of Earth.
IMAX cameras captured seven space shuttle crews and two resident
station crews, as they transformed the International Space
Station into a permanent research facility in space for the
study of the effects of long-duration exposure to zero gravity.
With a screen reaching more than six stories high and 15,000
watts of surround-sound, this IMAX 3D technology not only
launches you 200 miles above Earth, it thrusts you into zero
gravity, making you feel like you're in space floating alongside
space station astronauts and cosmonauts.
This technical marvel, unparalleled in scope and challenge,
also depicts the astronauts and cosmonauts sharing the tensions
and triumphs of their greatest challenge: thousands of hours
of painstaking dangerous work, all in this tiny vacuum of
Space Station 3D
