Catch a movie or two at the Saint Louis Science Center's OMNIMAX Theater, where films are shown with the power of IMAX film technology. Sit under the four-story screen while taking in breathtaking, awe-inspiring scenery in a state-of-the-art, wrap-around, domed theater.

Now Playing:

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. 

Humpback Whales. Their songs captured our hearts and their story will inspire you forever. An extraordinary journey into the mysterious world of one of nature's most awe-inspiring marine mammals, Humpback Whales takes audiences to Alaska, Hawaii and the remote islands of Tonga for an up-close look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play and take care of their young. Captured for the first time with IMAX® cameras, and found in every ocean on earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a steady recovery. Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out what makes humpbacks the most acrobatic of all whales, why they sing their haunting songs, and why these intelligent 50-foot, 48-ton animals migrate more than 6,000 miles round-trip every year.

NEW! Journey to Space. Using exclusive interviews with astronauts and spectacular space footage, Journey to Space puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle program and its intrepid space pioneers. Viewers will witness unique views of Earth and operations in space, such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope, and how the Shuttle launched and assembled the International Space Station. Plus, you'll learn about the exciting plans NASA and the space community are working on, and the challenges they must overcome to carry out audacious missions such as landing astronauts on Mars and capturing asteriods.
