Volcanoes

Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation is a tale of science, culture, and thrilling adventure. Earth is a planet born of fire. For billions of years, volcanoes have helped create the world we know. From the continents to the air we breathe and even life itself, all have their origins in fire. These processes have created extraordinary ecosystems and wildlife habitats. With over 500 active volcanoes, the Earth is bursting at the seams with these forces of mass construction. The story of volcanoes is the story of the planet’s creation, and the story of us.

With intrepid explorer Carsten Peter, dodge boulders at the edge of an active volcano in Indonesia, descend to a lava lake in Vanuatu and visit the incredible mineral deposit fields in Ethiopia. Travel across the globe to see the archeological ghost town of Pompeii and witness the devastating effects of the recent Kilauea eruption in Hawaii.

Audiences will be on the edge of their seats as they discover molten worlds and exploding craters in this adrenaline-filled, immersive experience that only IMAX®/Giant Screen films can provide.

America's Musical Journey

Narrated by Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman, “AMERICA’S MUSICAL JOURNEY” celebrates the unique diversity of cultures and creative innovations that characterize America, as told through the story of its music.  The film follows Grammy Award®-nominated singer and songwriter Aloe Blacc as he traces the roots of America’s music, following the footsteps of Louis Armstrong through the colorful locales and cultures where America’s music was born.  Visiting cities such as New Orleans, Chicago, New York City, Nashville, Memphis, Miami and more, audiences will experience uniquely American adventures such as paddle-wheel boating up the Mississippi Delta, flash mob dancing in Chicago and skydiving with Elvis impersonators in scenes shot exclusively for the giant screen.  As audiences join Blacc on a joyful, tune-filled tour of the nation’s most iconic music cities, they’ll discover the unique collision of cultures that gave birth to such electrifying art forms as jazz, the blues, country, rock and roll and hip-hop, culminating in a unique blend of sound, culture and innovation unlike anywhere else in the world.  “AMERICA’S MUSICAL JOURNEY” is a MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and presented by Expedia and Air Canada.
