Science Museum – “Awesome” IMAX 3D Cinema

A friend visited the Science Museum in London this week for her youngest son’s 5th birthday and this is what she said about their day out;

“The children loved it, we went for Isaac’s 5th birthday treat, and he loved every minute, from watching Hubble in the 3d iMax theatre, flying with the red arrows to making a hydrogen rocket, it was awesome.

The children ( and us! ) had a fabulous day, give your self plenty of time though, there is stacks to do!”

You can’t get a better endorsement then that!

Entry to the Science Museum in London is free and many of the fantastic exhibits are also free. The IMAX cinema does cost but they have a special deal which allows you to watch a second movie for half price. You may struggle to choose which ones to watch, here’s a run down of what’s currently on;

Hubble 3D at the IMAX 3D Cinema (U) – Journey through distant galaxies and explore the mysteries of the universe on this mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope. Using incredible 3D technology you can accompany space-walking astronauts as they attempt the most difficult and important tasks in NASA’s history, and experience never-before-seen 3D flights through awe-inspiring Hubble imagery. Narrated by Leonardo Di Caprio.

Wild Ocean 3D at the IMAX 3D Cinema (U) – An inspirational IMAX film exploring the relationship between man and the endangered ocean ecosystem. Filmed off the Wild Coast of South Africa and the KwaZulu-Natal Coast, this spectacular underwater adventure takes viewers on a journey of discovery, seeing how fish have provided a source of food for local people for countless generations. Watch one of nature’s greatest migration spectacles – an underwater feeding frenzy and epic struggle for survival where whales, sharks, dolphins, seals, gannets and billions of fish collide with the most voracious sea predator, mankind. The film has been nominated for several awards and won the 2009 Earthwatch film of the year.

Deep Sea 3D at the IMAX 3D Cinema (PG) – An underwater adventure where audiences will be transported below the ocean surface to swim with some of the planet’s most unique and colourful creatures, from the unusual Wolf Eel to the incredible Giant Pacific Octopus, and witness their remarkable behaviour as they rely on one another for survival. Viewers will be able to float with jellyfish, reach out to touch sea turtles and dodge the tentacles of an octopus without ever leaving their seats! Directed by world-renowned underwater cinematographer, Howard Hall, and produced by Toni Myers and Michele Hall, Deep Sea 3D is narrated by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, and is accompanied by an original score by Danny Elfman.

Fly Me to the Moon 3D at the IMAX 3D Cinema (U) – An animated space spectacular featuring the voices of Christopher Lloyd, Tim Curry and Nicollette Sheridan; an exciting tale of brave young housefly Nat and his two best friends, Scooter and IQ, who sneak on board the Apollo 11 spaceship mission to embark on a cosmic adventure. The film also features an appearance by Buzz Aldrin himself. Young viewers will be introduced to space exploration and the historic moment when the world was united to observe man land on the moon.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
