An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

Jerusalem 3D is Exempt from Classification*

Filmed for the first time in 3D and for the giant screen, JERUSALEM immerses audiences into one of the world's most beloved cities. Discover why this tiny piece of land is sacred to three major religions through the stories of Jewish, Christian and Muslim families who call Jerusalem home. Join renowned archaeologist, Dr. Jodi Magness, as she travels underground to solve some of this city’s greatest mysteries.
 
Find out why, after thousands of years, Jerusalem and the Holy Land continue to stir the imagination of billions of people. Unprecedented access to the city's holiest sites, as well as rare and breathtaking aerial footage of the Old City and the Holy Land, combine to make JERUSALEM a unique and stunning cinematic experience.

Film Makers Statement
Jerusalem stirs passions so deep and its role in Western civilization is so pivotal that we as filmmakers felt moved to bring this city to the world through the beauty and power of the giant screen.

'Our goal is to look at the roots of the universal attachment to Jerusalem: Jewish, Christian and Muslim. We hope the juxtaposition of these different religions and cultures – all with profound spiritual and historical connections to the city – will reveal how much Jews, Christians and Muslims have in common and inspire all of us to better understand each other.
 
Our film is not about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It embraces the idea that Jerusalem is many cities: imagined and real; past and present; Jewish, Christian, Muslim and secular. We are trying to answer the question: Why Jerusalem? What is it about this tiny space that made it the ultimate prize of empires and the object of longing for so many different cultures over thousands of years?
 
We believe that the power of the images and stories in JERUSALEM will allow our audience a unique window into the lives of others. Every stone in Jerusalem has many stories. It is the collective power of all these stories that makes the city so endearing to billions of people.
 
- Producers Taran Davies, George Duffield, & Daniel Ferguson

The first movie is the origins story that begins with the birth of Sun Wukong and ends with his imprisonment for his crimes under the Five-Peaked Mountain.

Unofficial Synopsis: As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control - all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs.

Director Michael Bay: "I wanted the first Transformers to be very suburban and less cool." He adds, "This is a much more cinematic one. I focused on keeping this one slick. There won't be any goofiness in this one..." Despite the updated robots and the fresh cast members, Bay insists "reboot" is not the right word to describe the movie. "It feels like a new chapter, this movie," he reasons. "But it's not a reboot. This movie lives in the history of the 'Transformers' movies, and this one starts three years after the last. It feels fresh."

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important conflict has been within himself:  the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man.  But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise Of Electro, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin.
 
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield).  For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone).  But being Spider-Man comes at a price:  only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city.  With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he.  And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realise that all of his enemies have one thing in common:  Oscorp.

Unseen World 3D takes audiences on an almost unbelievable journey into unseen worlds and hidden dimensions beyond our normal vision to uncover the mysteries of things too fast, too slow, too small or simply invisible, revealing phenomena  secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale.

Experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; "see” the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena that occur in the flash of a microsecond; enter a microscopic world once reserved for scientists, but now made accessible to the rest of us; and begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is to see on Earth.

High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements that allow us to see a universe of things, events, creatures, and processes we never even knew existed. These technologies give us new “superpowers” to see beyond what's in front of us.

Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Unseen World 3D will leave audiences in thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can’t see—a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute by minute and nanosecond by nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.

For many years the Monarch Butterfly, beautiful, fragile and a true marvel of nature, lay at the centre of an age old mystery; where did they go when they flew south each year?  As a young boy living near Toronto in the 1920’s, Dr Fred Urquhart wondered this very same thing as he witnessed the beginning of this incredible journey every autumn.  He could never have dreamt that each year, these monarchs joined millions of others on an extraordinary migration south to a remote and distant hideaway, and that this very question would lead him on a 40 year quest to find the answer.

Flight Of The Butterflies documents the largest and most incredible migration on earth; half a billion monarch butterflies traversing a continent and travelling over 5000 kilometers each year to hibernate, mate and lay eggs.  With pinpoint accuracy they navigate across North America and Mexico, following the warm weather and food supply in order to produce the next generation of Monarchs and continue this extraordinary cycle.

From the grassy Texas hills, to the flower gardens of Canada and the mountains of Mexico, soar alongside one of the greatest spectacles of the natural world and join us in amazing IMAX as we follow the Flight Of The Butterflies.

*HIGH FRAME RATE (48FPS)**

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” the second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all — a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself — the Dragon Smaug.

The IMAX release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

** What is High Frame Rate 3D (HFR 3D)?
Frame rates are the number of images (or frames) displayed by a projector in one second. 24 frames per second (fps) is the current standard in cinemas (including IMAX) worldwide. HFR 3D is another format option that presents the movie in 48 frames per second (fps),  which is reported to be closer to what the human eye can actually see. This format was available for the first Hobbit movie released last year and received mixed response - some loving and other loathing it (we encourage you to do your own research). Nevertheless, IMAX Melbourne had many requests to screen The Hobbit in HFR 3D hence this format will be available for limited sessions.

The BIGGEST BAND, The BIGGEST SCREEN - 3D HAS NEVER FELT THIS HEAVY!

"IMAX! It doesn't get bigger or cooler than that!" said Lars Ulrich who formed Metallica in 1981 together with James Hetfield. "For four guys in a rock band of average height, to get a chance to unleash their 3D film on IMAX screens the size of buildings across the country is a mind-blowing thought. 'Hey look, Mom, I'm 50 feet tall (finally!)' There is no better way to experience film and when you throw in the spectacle of music and sound this should amount to an unprecedented, unique and truly next level experience."

 Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Metallica Through the Never is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica's roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.

The IMAX release of Metallica Through the Never will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

"(Gravity) offers the kind of theoretically game-changing theatrical experience that absolutely demands theatrical viewing on the biggest 3D IMAX screen you can find.... I cannot imagine a more fantastic and thrilling movie going experience." - Scott Mendleson, Forbes magazine

"An awe-inspiring achievement, a towering slice of cinematic splendour that astounds and terrifies in equal measure." - Jordan Farley, SFX Magazine

"This isn't just the best-looking film of the year, it's one of the most awe-inspiring achievements in the history of special-effects cinema." - Tom Huddleston, Time Out

Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in “Gravity,” a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space.  The film was directed by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”). Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring.  But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes.  The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.

The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue.  As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

The IMAX release of Gravity will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” the second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all — a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself — the Dragon Smaug.

The IMAX release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

Great White Shark 3D will be presented in IMAX 1570 FILM

Great White Shark 3D take you up close and personal with the world's most iconic predator! Great White Shark, a new large format film, unravels the mystery of the creature we love to fear — the much maligned, misrepresented and misunderstood great white shark — and goes to the depths of human daring to tell the true story of its role atop the oceanic food chain.  

Three years in the making, Great White Shark takes viewers around the world to great white hotspots: the crystal clear waters of Mexico’s legendary Guadalupe Island; newly-discovered shark territory around Stewart Island off the southernmost tip of New Zealand; the bone-chilling waters of South Africa’s “flying” great whites; and finally to the California coast near heavily-populated Los Angeles. The film examines what we know about these incredible animals through the eyes of several people whose lives and work have become inextricably linked to the great white.   Using revolutionary high-speed, digital IMAX cameras in South Africa, filmmakers captured the great white breaching for the first time in 3D.

“Our mission is to change people’s attitudes toward the great white” said Steve McNicholas, co-director of the film. “It’s not the menacing, evil predator it’s made out to be. It’s simply performing its crucial role at the top of the ocean’s food chain. Great whites are not monsters any more than the polar bears or lions that we revere.”

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

Titans of the Ice Age 3D will be presented in IMAX 1570 FILM

Titans of the Ice Age 3D transports viewers to the beautiful and otherworldy frozen landscapes of North America, Europe and Asia ten thousand years before modern civilization. 

Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life - from saber-toothed cats and cave bears to dire wolves and woolly mammoths - giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans.  

The Ice Age marks a dynamic chapter in the development of the human spirit, a great test of survival, a "trial by ice" that would compel our ancestors to seek understanding and meaning in nature.  These inventions and discoveries - art, language, clothing, the taming of fire - born of the Pleistocene, were tools that defined and civilized the human species.  

Ironically, our spirit of ingenuity and survival instincts would ultimately provide us with the power and knowledge to alter the very forces of nature that once shaped our existence.  And the consequences, from species devastation to global warming, have become the great challenges in the modern era.  

The Ice Age takes a thoughtful look at the relationships between the Earth, her resources and inhabitants, and our role in a changing world.  As the planet now warms by our own hand, jeopardizing thousands of species, how can we tap into the same great human capacity for innovation to solve today's emerging threats?

For an iconic movie like Top Gun, we don’t need to explain the plot..  It’s enough to say that hotshot pilot Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell (Tom Cruise - pre Scientology and TomKat), has some daddy issues, a major chip on his shoulder and an attitude problem, but is a supremely talented pilot.  27 years later, Mr Cruise is still a draw card in one of his iconic roles on the big screen... and is still writing cheques his body can’t cash.  Cue iconic movie lines, 80’s kitch, over the top beats AND show it on the BIG screen....? There’s no better way to relive the glory!

TOP GUN was re-mastered for the big screen from high-resolution original negative scans and painstakingly converted to 3D by Legend3D under the supervision of the film’s director, Tony Scott.  Rendered in 3D, the film’s complex, long shots reveal extraordinary depth and clarity, allowing viewers to explore every detail of the action.  From the spectacular aerial dogfights to the intense close-ups in the cockpits, each frame enables the audience to feel a part of the story.

With his remastering of the epic into a state-of-the-art 3D format, Spielberg introduces the three-time Academy Award® winning blockbuster to a new generation of moviegoers and allows longtime fans to experience the world he envisioned in a way that was unimaginable during the film’s original release.

Jurassic Park 3D follows two dinosaur experts - Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler - as they are invited by eccentric millionaire John Hammond to preview his new amusement park on an island off Costa Rica. By cloning DNA harvested from pre-historic insects, Hammond has been able to create living dinosaurs for his new Jurassic Park, an immense animal preserve housing real brachiosaurs, dilophosaurs, triceratops, velociraptors, and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. 

Accompanied by cynical scientist Ian Malcolm, who is obsessed with chaos theory, and Hammond's two grandchildren, they are sent on a tour through Hammond's new resort in computer controlled touring cars. But as a tropical storm hits the island, knocking out the power supply, and an unscrupulous employee sabotages the system so that he can smuggle dinosaur embryos out of the park, the dinosaurs start to rage out of control.  Grant then has to bring Hammond's grandchildren back to safety as the group is pursued by the gigantic, prehistoric man-eating beasts.

When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.

But even the Jaegers proved almost defenceless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.  On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent, Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.”

“A MUST SEE 3D IMAX JOURNEY…a feast for the eyes and one of the best IMAX documentaries" -  Seattle Times – October 20, 2012

“Phenomenal IMAX 3D visuals…neatly balances entertainment and education. Bound to fascinate" - Variety – October 8, 2012

“It is thought that Flight of the Butterflies 3D … could do for butterflies what the feature documentary March of the Penguins did for penguins” - The Guardian UK – September 22, 2012

For many years the Monarch Butterfly, beautiful, fragile and a true marvel of nature, lay at the centre of an age old mystery; where did they go when they flew south each year?  As a young boy living near Toronto in the 1920’s, Dr Fred Urquhart wondered this very same thing as he witnessed the beginning of this incredible journey every autumn.  He could never have dreamt that each year, these monarchs joined millions of others on an extraordinary migration south to a remote and distant hideaway, and that this very question would lead him on a 40 year quest to find the answer. 

Flight Of The Butterflies 3D documents the largest and most incredible migration on earth; half a billion monarch butterflies traversing a continent and travelling over 5000 kilometers each year to hibernate, mate and lay eggs.  With pinpoint accuracy they navigate across North America and Mexico, following the warm weather and food supply in order to produce the next generation of Monarchs and continue this extraordinary cycle.

From the grassy Texas hills, to the flower gardens of Canada and the mountains of Mexico, soar alongside one of the greatest spectacles of the natural world and join us in amazing IMAX 3D as we follow the Flight Of The Butterflies.

Fly across iridescent tropical reefs, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see. Shot on location in Palau, Vancouver Island, French Polynesia, Mexico, and The Bahamas, The Last Reef 3D takes us on a global journey to explore our connection with the ocean’s complex, parallel worlds. New underwater 3D technology takes us into the heart of the reef, revealing a habitat more diverse and more colorful than you ever imagined!

The Last Reef 3D showcases the magnificence of coral reefs around the world, whilst highlighting the first hand effects of agriculture and industry on our life sustaining oceans.We think of reefs as exotic, distant places with little or no connection to our everyday world. Yet every reef is a living city beneath the sea with a parallel existence to ours, distant yet undeniably connected to our every day lives.

Reefs are hotspots of biodiversity as vital to life on earth as the rain-forests. They have been shaping our shorelines, literally forming islands and mountains, for millions of years.  With incredible capacity to regenerate, the fossil record shows that given time they have recovered from all of earth’s major extinction events.  Even reefs pulverised by atomic blasts at Bikini Atoll have regenerated.

Yet within our lifetime, reefs have come to face their greatest threat. With 300 tons of anthropogenic carbon dioxide dissolving into the sea every second, the coral, shell and bone that makes up the worlds reefs are beginning to crumble as our oceans become more acidic.  This ocean acidification is causing reefs to vanish at an alarming rate; 90% of Caribbean reefs have already disappeared with scientists now predicting all the world’s coral reefs could be gone within our lifetime...

One of the world’s most popular superheros is back as a new chapter in the Spiderman legend unfolds on the giant IMAX screen.

Strictly limited season for two weeks only must end July 18th - don't miss it!

“In order to fully take advantage of the IMAX experience, the IMAX 3D presentation will feature a larger aspect ratio in select sequences which will fully immerse fans into the world of Spider-Man, leading into a finale that will blow you away.” - Marc Webb, Director of The Amazing Spiderman 3D.

The Amazing Spider-Man tells the story of Peter Parker, an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today, whilst at the same time finding his way with his first high school crush.

As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors, his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditco, The Amazing Spiderman stars Andrew Garfield (as Spider-Man/Peter Parker), Emma Stone (as Gwen Stacy), Rhys Ifans (as Dr Curt Connors) with Martin Sheen and Sally Field (Uncle Ben and Aunt May) and is directed by Mark Webb.

The Amazing Spiderman 3D will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is an IMAX 3D Presentation. 

Filmed as a fantasy trilogy, all three hobbit movies are once again set in Middle-earth, 60 years before Frodo’s adventures in Lord Of The Rings.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Dec 2012), follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs, Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. But it is whilst escaping the goblin tunnels on the way to the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain that Bilbo meets the creature Gollum, who will change his life forever. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake the unassuming Bilbo not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious”, a ring that holds unexpected qualities tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot even begin to know.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (the second film) is scheduled for release in Dec 2013, with the final installment - The Hobbit: There and Back Again, to be released in July 2014.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be presented in regular 24 frames per second at IMAX Melbourne.

The IMAX release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

Titanic 3D runs for 210 minutes in IMAX, which includes an intermission of 15 minutes (actual film run time 195 minutes). No trailers precede Titanic 3D sessions and therefore the feature commences at the advertised time.

Return to TITANIC and experience it like never before in IMAX 3D!

On April 15th 2012, precisely a century after the historic ship's sinking and 15 years after the original theatrical release, Oscar Winning Director James Cameron's Titanic resurfaces in IMAX, in state of the art 3D.

A fictionalized account of the sinking, Titanic 3D tells the story of Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio), Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet), members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ship during her ill-fated maiden voyage and share a connection that neither social convention nor the ferocious power of nature could tear asunder.

“My goal in making this film was to show not only the dramatic death of this infamous ship, but her brief and glorious life as well.   (It is) to capture the beauty, exuberance, optimism and hope of Titanic, her passengers and crew and, in the process of baring the dark side of humanity underlying this tragedy, celebrate the limitless potential of the human spirit.  For Titanic is not just a cautionary tale – a myth, a parable, a metaphor for all the ills of mankind.  It is also a story of faith, courage, sacrifice, and above all else, love”.  James Cameron, Oscar winning Director and Producer, Titanic and Titanic 3D

Upon its original release in 1997, Titanic was celebrated for transporting audiences back in time, right into the belly of the R.M.S Titanic in all her glory and into the heart of a forbidden love affair entwined with the ship's epic collision with human arrogance, nature and fate.  The original movie held Box Office records that stood until Cameron’s Avatar 3D  broke them.  And now, the leading edge of 3D conversion technology has allowed Cameron to return movie goers to Titanic, in the most visceral and dynamic screen experience of the story yet imagined.

Moderate Sci-Fi Violence and a Medical Procedure

Limited re-release, season ends November 4th.

Ridley Scott, director of 'Alien' and 'Blade Runner,' returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a yet another groundbreaking mythology in which a team of select individuals explore an advanced alien civilisation in search of the origins of humanity.

What we know so far...

Little is known about Prometheus' plotline, but what we can share with you, is that similar to Ridley Scott’s original ‘Alien’ (1979) it is for the most part set in space. The name "Prometheus" is that of a space vessel that is used by a crew of select individuals who set off to explore and investigate fragments of alien DNA.
As per the original Alien, Prometheus revolves around the Space Jockey creature; and when a team of scientists embarks on this particular journey they get stranded on an alien world which tests both their mental and physical limits. Prometheus is also largely based on the creation of mankind, life and the Earth. As a team of explorers comprised of scientists, company representatives and robots discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, they are lead on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe, where they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Does Prometheus share strands of Alien's DNA...?? Check out the clues HERE 

See more Prometheus at IMAX!
Exclusive to IMAX, Prometheus will feature a larger aspect ratio of 2.0:1 as opposed to the traditional 2.39:1 ratio. What does this mean? This aspect ratio is optimized to take advantage of the giant IMAX screen, allowing you to see MORE of the image then anywhere else. Immerse yourself completely in the full panorama of Ridley Scott's epic. Only at IMAX Melbourne Museum.

Australia Land Beyond Time

Running Time: 45 minutes
Image Gallery

With its endless coastline and vast expanses of red, sandy desert, our continent, seemingly unaffected by time, harbours unique inhabitants and dramatic scenery.
Kangaroos bound majestically across the plains, thorny devils scamper comically through the spinifex and koala families take siestas, lounging together atop their eucalyptus perches. Exotic rainforests and cascading waterfalls also are counted among our continent's hidden treasures.
Tracing the four-billion-year journey of the southern continent, Australia: Land Beyond Time explores the lavish richness, diversity and uniqueness of Australia's life, life that survived and evolved during the most challenging of voyages.
It brings to the giant screen animals that hop instead of run, creatures that have fur yet lay eggs, ants that plant seeds, plants that were the food of dinosaurs and water birds that fly inland to breed only every few years when sporadic rains come.
Through the most ingenious strategies, the film shows how life has managed to flourish on impoverished soils, where flood and drought go hand-in-hand. In breathtaking large-format imagery, it surveys some of the most surreal and fascinating landscapes on Earth ­ from ancient, eroded sea beds and vibrant, red sand dunes that merge with far horizons to the jeweled sea of its immense coral reef. Australia is a remarkable journey through time.
This movie is an opportunity to travel to some of the most remote regions of the continent, places that very few Australians have ever visited. See fascinating sites, including Lake Eyre filled with water - an event that only happens about twice every century.
