from acclaimed director Terrence Malick opens October 22 exclusively at the Ontario Science Centre under the OMNIMAX® Dome
Toronto (October 18, 2016) –Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience, the new film from acclaimed American filmmaker Terrence Malick and IMAX Entertainment, will open at the Ontario Science Centre on October 22. The film — a 45-minute, giant-screen adventure narrated by Brad Pitt — transports audiences directly into the story of the universe and life itself. Tickets are on sale at www.OntarioScienceCentre.ca.
“Voyage of Time promises a truly immersive experience for visitors at Ontario’s only dome IMAX theatre,” said Dr. Maurice Bitran, CEO and Chief Science Officer for the Ontario Science Centre. “The Centre is pleased to offer the exclusive Toronto run of this unique cinematic experience chronicling the history of our universe.” The film will screen on Saturdays at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. beginning October 22, 2016.
Voyage of Time premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. The IMAX® release of Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 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.
Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience is a one-of-a-kind celebration of life and the grand history of the cosmos, transporting audiences into a vast, yet up-close-and-personal journey that spans the eons from the Big Bang to the dinosaur age to our present human world … and beyond.
A labour of love from one of American cinema’s most acclaimed and visually exciting filmmakers, Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life), Voyage of Time represents the filmmaker’s first foray into documentary storytelling. The film’s panorama of awe-inspiring images will take you into the heart of the most monumental events ever witnessed — from the birth of the stars and galaxies to the explosion of diverse life-forms on planet earth, including humankind — in captivating new ways that only IMAX can deliver. This is a cosmic experience — a hymn to the glories of nature, life and scientific discovery — in which all the elements come together to form Malick’s most original film to date.
IMAX Entertainment presents in association with IMAX Documentary Films Capital and Knights of Columbus.
