Great Bear Rainforest 3D at the IMAX Opening Weekend
May 28-31 at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, 3:45 pm & 6:15 pm
Beginning Memorial Day weekend, audiences can visit this ancient, unspoiled wilderness and enjoy never-before-seen footage of its rare-bear residents and other amazing wildlife when Great Bear Rainforest 3D begins screening at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater.
“Very few people have ever seen a Spirit Bear. Even people in British Columbia are surprised to hear that we have this globally-rare bear,” says Director Ian McAllister. “To see a Spirit Bear for the first time is a remarkable experience, and to be able to film them so intimately as they went about their lives was a real delight and treat.”
This exciting new giant-screen adventure, which is narrated by Ryan Reynolds, is the result of three years of work on the part of McAllister and his team in the unforgiving and ruggedly beautiful reaches of the Canadian rainforest.
Thanks to improvements in IMAX filming equipment, filmmakers were able to get closer than ever to the bears and the other wildlife, offering views never before captured on camera. On a six-story-tall screen, then, the film becomes a gateway to a place few have been to and even fewer have laid lenses on.
