COMING APRIL 1: EVEREST

The dramatic, true story of an expedition of four climbers on their journey to the summit of Mount Everest, just days after the infamous 1996 tragedy in which eight climbers lost their lives in a deadly storm, a story chronicled in Jon Krakauer’s best-selling book Into Thin Air. The unique experience of viewing the film in the dome theater provides an immersive perspective of the world’s tallest mountain and the Sherpa culture and tradition that permeates the Everest experience. 

“Visually gorgeous”
     – The New York Times
“The best IMAX film to date”
     – New York Post
“A breathtaking climb to the top”
     – Entertainment Weekly
“As dramatic as it is fascinating and spectacular”
     – Daily Variety

Originally released in 1998 to blockbuster success and now digitally remastered for a new generation. Everest is above all else a story of triumph over adversity and of the true power and resilience of the human spirit.
