All around amazing!
Double your fun!
See your second Omnifest film for only $4. Valid for screenings at 7, 8 and 9 p.m.
Get a front-row seat to experience larger-than-life adventures—from the crystal clear waters of Mexico's Guadalupe Island to a seat on board the space shuttle Discovery, more than 300 miles above the Earth's surface. Omnifest 2014 will bring five big films—both new and favorites—to the William L. McKnight-3M Omnitheater's giant screen.
Great White Shark
3 p.m. (8 p.m. Thursday - Saturday; 10 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays)
Brand new to the Omnitheater, Great White Shark unravels the mystery of a creature humans love to fear—the much maligned, misrepresented and misunderstood great white shark. This film goes to the depths of human daring to tell the true story of its role atop the oceanic food chain.
1 p.m. (6 p.m. Thursday - Saturday)
Blue Planet is a portrait of the planet we call home, featuring breathtaking footage from five different space shuttle missions. From this unique vantage point, you'll see the forces that affect our planet, from both within and without: volcanoes, earthquakes, typhoons, and perhaps the most powerful force, humankind.
Ring of Fire
5 p.m. (Noon on Saturdays and Sundays)
Only the Omnitheater's nine-story domed screen can do justice to the great circle of volcanoes that rings the Pacific Ocean. In this Science Museum of Minnesota original production, you'll have a front row seat for the spectacular eruptions of Mount St. Helens and Sakurajima in Japan, see the birth of a new volcano in southern Chile, and meet people who live within the shadows of some of the world's most active volcanoes.
Stomp's World Beat
11 a.m. and 4 p.m. (9 p.m. Thursday - Saturday)
Join cast members from the acclaimed stage show Stomp—who use matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans and more to make music—as they tour the world and celebrate the global beat with this exuberant exploration of the sights and sounds of continents and cultures.
To the Limit
2 p.m. (7 p.m. Thursday - Saturday)
Featuring incredible endoscopic footage of the inner workings of the human body, To The Limit introduces you to a rock climber, a ski racer, and a prima ballerina as they put their highly-trained bodies to the test. See the spectacular roles that these athletes' muscles, respiratory and circulatory systems, and senses of sight and hearing play in their rigorous routines.
