IMAX Movie Experience: Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
Visit the IMAX Dome Theater at McWane Science Center this summer, Tuesday, May 26 - Tuesday, June 23 for an incredible IMAX viewing experience: Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. A giant 5 story tall dome screen and 3 tons of giant speakers allow you to go behind the walls of the the spectacular Smithsonian Museum Complex and have a truly interactive visit. In fact, this is the first major movie to be filmed inside the Smithsonian located in Washington, D.C. It's something you'll definitely want to check out! Please visit the McWane Science Center Website for movie dates and times.
You'll see your favorite characters from the first film, as well a ferocious one ton T-Rex, an Egyptian pharaoh, Amelia Earhart's classic airplane and the extraordinarily enthusiastic 26th President of the United States, Teddy Roosevelt. Just think, you'll visit behind the walls of the Smithsonian Institution and see some of the actual artifacts housed there, including a T-Rex skeleton, Dorothy's ruby red slippers and historical gallery portraits. You will definitely see these sites and objects in a new and incredible way!
But don't just sit there, go and see the film today! And while you're at it, see an exhibit, perform an experiment, tour the halls and go wild at the McWane Science Center this summer! Just remember to design, invent, and create!
Don't forget to make reservations to spend a night at the museum on May 30 & June 6! Adventure awaits! Please click on the McWane Center Website for more details.
