Hubble 3D Premiere A Star-Studded Affair Instead of Hollywood stars, this movie debut featured stars in the sky. This amazing film, shot with an IMAX 3D camera in space, shows how a crew of astronauts repaired the Hubble Space telescope. The images from Hubble 3D are incredible. Learn more about the movie premiere in this article from CollectSpace.com and read more about the mission in this interview with astronaut Mike Massimino. Then get set for the opening of Hubble 3D at Pacific Science Center's Boeing IMAX Theater March 19. Tickets are on sale now.
Seeing 'Alice?' 3D Is A Must Thousands have been flocking to theaters across the country to watch the newest interpretation of the classic Alice in Wonderland story. But if you're going to see it, you really must see it in 3D, as this LA Times reviewer points out. And if you're going to see it in 3D, you really owe it to yourself to see it on the biggest screen in Seattle. Alice in Wonderland An IMAX 3D Experience is now playing at Pacific Science Center's Boeing IMAX Theater. Buy Tickets.
Go For A Run, Celebrate Science If you plan to be among the thousands taking part in the St. Paddy's Day Dash this Sunday in Seattle, be on the lookout for some participants sporting Martian antennae and lime green t-shirts! OK, so they're not real antennae, they're costumes some Pacific Science Center staffers will be wearing as they run and walk the course. Letting everyone know about our current exhibit, Facing Mars. Don't be surprised if they hand out some goodies along the way. Hope to see you there!
