This new IMAX film opens Saturday, December 11 at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, out by Washington Dulles Airport.
I can't wait to see it.
I love IMAX films, especially when they're shown at the Smithsonian's IMAX theaters, the finest arenas for IMAX cinema on the planet.
I remember watching a movie about the Apollo Moon Missions there: the sound was so awesome that the seats vibrated and the whole theater shook when the Saturn rocket lifted off.
Man, that's as close as I want to get to lighting that candle.
The new movie should be just as intense as well: it's as close as you or I will ever get to experiencing speeds above Mach 1.
Bet people toss their cookies in the theater when the plane rolls.
Wait and see.
Wonder if they hand out barf bags along with the tickets....
Even if this movie's not your cup of tea, if you're ever in Washington, D.C. make sure you visit the Air and Space Museum and watch one of their other movies: they've got ones about volcanoes, animals, the ocean, all manner of great subjects.
The clarity and richness of color of these movies, shot with immense cameras and lenses and special 70mm film, is not to be believed.
