The mission to protect and defend the world's oceans has become far more complex and challenging in recent years, and naval aviation has become increasingly vital to success. One of the greatest engineering feats in history, the modern U.S. nuclear carrier is a masterpiece of technology, and the flagship of the fleet. With RIMPAC, the world’s largest and most comprehensive international maritime training exercise providing a stunning visual context for the story, find yourself aboard the carrier alongside the 5,000 highly skilled sea and air personnel conducting flight operations in the midst of the simulated war exercises taking place there.
June 6, 1944: The largest Allied operation of World War II began in Normandy, France. For the first time ever on giant screens,
D-Day: Normandy 1944 provides a new perspective to audiences of all ages of this monumental event that changed the world. The film pays tribute to those who gave their lives for our freedom…A duty of memory, a duty of gratitude.
Dream Big: Engineering Our World is the first film of its kind for giant screen theaters that will transform how we think about engineering. From the world’s tallest buildings to underwater robots and a solar car race across Australia, Dream Big celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels big and small, and shows how engineers push the limits of innovation in unexpected and amazing ways.

Misrepresented, maligned and on the verge of extinction, the great white shark is an iconic predator: the creature we love to fear.
Great White Shark will explore the great white’s place in our imaginations, in our fears and in the reality of its role at the top of the oceanic food chain. The film will concentrate on key aggregation points around the world: Mexico, South Africa, Los Angeles and New Zealand. Key figures in the history of shark research, people whose lives have been changed by contact with the great white, will tell us of their experiences, culminating in a direct encounter between man and shark.
Hidden Universe utilizes state-of-the-art telescopes to give the inhabitants of Earth a view of our Universe like it’s never before been seen. Only a handful of people are able to peer into some of the greatest telescope facilities in the world, but this new movie experience enables that opportunity for everyone. The film explores the European Space Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT), as well as the internationally-supported Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). Viewers will be able to sit down and enjoy a tour of deep space in comfort. They will be taken on a journey deep inside galaxies and nebulae, skimming over the surface of the famous Red Planet, and get the closest they will ever be to the Sun.
Jerusalem, an original production from Cosmic Picture and Arcane Pictures, aims to increase public awareness and appreciation for the city’s historical, spiritual, cultural and artistic contributions to the world. After years of working with various government ministries and religious and community leaders, the filmmakers were granted the exclusive permits necessary to capture aerial shots above the Old City of Jerusalem, and throughout the Holy Land. As a result, audiences are given a rare bird’s-eye view of the storied city as well as exclusive access to iconic holy sites and little-known parts of the region in one powerful, 45-minute giant screen film experience. Aside from the breathtaking scenery, “Jerusalem” also explores some of the surprising intersections between Judaism, Christianity and Islam, which come together in this sacred city.
Embark on an epic journey in the most spectacular wildlife sanctuary on Earth in
Kenya Animal Kingdom. Meet Ntulesai and Ntukai, two fearless Maasai warriors, and follow them on their ritual safari before taking part in an extraordinary traditional ceremony. Discover the region’s famous fauna in their natural habitat, including the Big Five – lions, elephants, Cape buffalo, leopards and black rhinos – as well as giraffe, hippos, cheetahs, and many more!
Last Reef Cities Beneath The Sea, is an uplifting giant screen journey exploring the beauty and mysteries of the world's reef ecosystems: a distant yet parallel world, with living cities undeniably connected to our own human communities. Vanishing at five times the rate of rain forests, the world’s coral reefs are under siege. Through vivid visuals, music and narration, the film reveals the teeming life of these underwater cities, and their crucial role in the ocean’s survival—and our own. Fly across iridescent tropical corals, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see, where the tiniest creatures support the greatest predators. As these ancient, exotic havens face the threat of extinction, The Last Reef inspires audiences with a vision of the reef’s incredible—yet fragile—power to rebuild.
Living in the Age of Airplanes reminds us how the airplane has profoundly changed the world and our lives. Beautifully filmed in 18 countries, across all seven continents, the film renews our appreciation for one of the most extraordinary and awe inspiring inventions in the modern world. Narrated by Harrison Ford.

The power of America’s national parks is undeniable. Millions have packed up the family to hike through impossibly lush forests, to gaze upon towering cliffs and deep-plunging canyons, to witness the breathtaking arcs of natural history, and, most of all, to share moments of wonder amid the protected treasures of this land.
A MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and narrated by Academy Award® winner Robert Redford,
National Parks Adventure is acclaimed filmmaker Greg MacGillivray’s most visually ambitious giant-screen film to date—a film that offers not only a sweeping overview of the national parks’ history, but is equal parts adrenaline-pumping odyssey and soulful reflection on what the wilderness means to us all.

50 years after launching our dreams into space, we’re left with a troubling legacy: a growing ring of orbiting debris that threatens the safety of earth’s orbits.
Space Junk is a visually explosive journey of discovery that weighs the solutions aimed at restoring our planet’s orbits. Experience mind-boggling collisions, both natural and man-made. Soar for the stunning depths of Meteor Crater to an unprecedented view of our increasingly crowded orbits – 22,000 miles above earth. Join us as foremost expert Don Kessler, the “Father of Space Junk,” guides us through the challenges we face in protecting them, forging a new age of space discovery.
Titans of the Ice Age transports viewers to the beautiful and otherworldly 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 giant sloths to the iconic mammoths, giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans. The magic of the giant screen reveals the harsh and beautiful kingdom of these titans: an ancient world of ice, the dawn of our ancestors, a time when humans fought for survival alongside majestic woolly beasts.
We the People takes a look at our Founding Fathers and the Bill of Rights.
Wonders of the Arctic, narrated by Victor Garber, examines the geology and climate of what is perceived to be one of the harshest environments on our planet, exploring the tundra with the people that live there, and discovering the vast array of wildlife thriving in the snow and ice. “Historically, over half of the Arctic Ocean was covered by ice year round,” explained producer, director, and writer David Lickley. “In the past 50 years, that ice cover has been reduced by nearly 70%, and it is predicted that within 15 years there could be a completely ice free Arctic during some months of the year. This is a timely film that explores this ice world from both a human, and a natural history perspective, featuring the iconic ice dependent animals like the polar bear and the bowhead whale.”
