2019 IMAX Film Festival:

Beavers

Welcome back the furry critter that changed the landscape. Three decades after its original release Beavers, the worldwide family favorite, returns to giant screen theaters better than ever.

Beavers explores the life and rich aquatic habitat of one of nature’s greatest engineers. Set in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, the film follows the story of a family of beavers as they grow, play and transform the world around them. In magical imagery, the film introduces the creatures that share the beavers’ habitat, documents the beavers’ struggle for survival across the seasons, and reveals the tremendous impact they have on their world. Lyrical and humorous, Beavers captures as never before, the performance of these gifted builders and the majesty of their habitat.

Expedition Chesapeake

A story of epic proportions that journeys into the mysterious and beautiful watershed and explores the connections between the millions of people, plants and animals that call it home.

Immerse yourself into the waters of the bay as Emmy award-winning naturalist, Jeff Corwin, leads you through the expedition from New York to Virginia, and meet the families and teams who are working together to understand and address the issues facing the country’s largest estuary.

Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs

Part historic journey and part forensic adventure, Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs follows researchers and explorers as they piece together the archeological and genetic clues of Egyptian mummies.

These relics of the past create a window into the fascinating and mysterious world of the pharaohs. In addition to increasing our understanding of the culture, religion, medicine, and daily life of the Egyptians thousands of years ago, scientists today are reconstructing mummy DNA to gain insight into modern human genetics and to advance medical treatments. To unwrap the secrets of the pharaohs is to perhaps glimpse the future of our own civilization.

Robots

Today's robots are nothing short of astonishing. Those coming in the not-too-distant future are simply revolutionary — and they are becoming eerily like us.

Robots is a sneak peek into the future at what might be possible as scientists use innovative engineering and design to make cyber characters less "humanoid" and more just plain human. Robot "actor" RoboThespian ™ will introduce you to CHIMP, ATLAS, PR-2, Herb the Butler, ICUB, and others as he takes you on an amazing tour of what's going on in robotics labs around the world.

Touch the Stars

Touch the Stars centers on mankind’s probes used in exploration of our solar system and the galaxy beyond.

The film traces the path to space through the history of NASA’s probes, orbiters and landers. From the heart of our solar system, to the surface of other planets and moons, to the grand tour of the Voyager spacecraft through the outer planets and beyond. Created with the latest imagery and scientific data, Touch the Stars uses inspiring real footage and three-dimensional vistas of our solar system and interstellar space to transport audiences to planets and distant stars alongside these intrepid robot explorers.

Ultimate Wave: Tahiti

Featuring nine-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater, The Ultimate Wave follows a quest to find the perfect wave-riding experience. Filmed in Tahiti and among the islands of French Polynesia, the film showcases dramatic giant screen surfing action in a unique Pacific paradise.

As the surfer’s quest unfolds, the film explores the hidden forces at work shaping the waves and the islands that lie in their path. In stylized animated segments, the audience is propelled into the cosmos to discover the sources of a wave’s energy; and then back to Earth to witness the swirling dance of the atmosphere that will transfer energy deep into the ocean and shape a wave’s long journey across thousands of miles of open Pacific.
