NEW!  Mysteries of the Unseen World: Do you think everything you see in your world is all there is to see? Think again! There is another world you can't see, made up of things that are too small or things that move too fast or too slow for the naked eye to see. Mysteries of the Unseen World takes you into these invisible realms that surround you every minute of the day to see what you're missing. This visually stunning film is produced by National Geographic. 

Now Open: Rocky Mountain Express: Rocky Mountain Express propels audiences on a steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Rockies and highlights the adventure of building a nearly impossible transcontinental railway. The film weaves together spectacular IMAX aerial cinematography, archival photographs and maps, and the potent energy and rhythms of a live steam locomotive to immerse audiences in this remarkable story from the age of steam.

D-Day: Normandy 1944: In May 1943, World War II is at its apex. To counter Hitler and the Axis forces, the Allies decide to open a second front on the western side of Europe. The Allied forces, led by U.S. General Eisenhower, have just months to organize the operation code-named “Overlord,” with only a 50/50 chance of success, that will break Hitler’s Atlantic Wall fortress and lead to the Battle of Normandy. Narrated by renowned journalist and author Tom Brokaw, D-Day: Normandy 1944 provides a new, penetrating look at this defining moment in history in a truly unique manner.
