OMNIMAX® Theatre

Enhance your Science World experience with an immersive film on the largest OMNIMAX dome screen in the world! At an incredible 5 storeys high and 27 metres in diameter, the theatre boasts a sensational wrap-around digital sound system to put you right in the middle of the action.

Please note: The OMNIMAX Theatre elevator will be out of service from April 18, 2017 until late July, 2017. This means that access to the theatre is limited to a 200m ramp, with a fairly steep incline. We recommend that anyone with mobility challenges or concerns, visit our OMNIMAX theatre after the repairs have been completed.

The Inuit and their predecessors adapted and thrived for thousands of years in what is arguably the harshest environment on earth. Today, the Arctic is the focus of intense research. Instead of seeking to conquer the north, scientist pioneers are searching for answers to some troubling questions about the impacts of human activities around the world on this fragile and largely uninhabited frontier. Join in on the ongoing mission to explore the Arctic, and hear the compelling stories of forays into this captivating place. Underlying these tales is the crucial role that ice plays in the northern environment and the changes that are impacting the people and animals who have adapted to this land of ice and snow.

Voyage of Time 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. 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 filmmaker Terrence Malick's most original film to date.
