L ooking for adventure? It’s as close as the Pink Palace CTI IMAX Theatre come January 8th, when the new IMAX film Hubble reveals some of the mysteries of our galaxy. This stunning 43-minute feature tells the story of the multi-billion dollar Hubble space telescope and the astronauts who work on it in space. During the past 20 years, the Hubble telescope has circled the Earth countless times, capturing stunning images of the Milky Way, Orion Nebula, distant stars, meteors, and gas giants for scientists to study. The film promises to fill the four-story IMAX® screen with unforgettable astronomical images that reflect humankind’s efforts to understand space.
One highlight features the astronauts from the crew of Atlantis STS-125 making a space walk as they work to repair the telescope during a servicing mission. Narrated by Leonardo deCaprio, this award-winning film is the seventh by IMAX Space Team. So strap yourself in, and let the countdown begin. • $8/adults, $7.25/seniors, $6.25/ages 3-12.
