We are very excited to announce a special screening event at our theater starting next Friday (April 6th). We have partnered with Cirque du Soleil to bring you a mix of two very unique 3D movies once only seen on Imax. These extraordinary movies have not been seen on the big screen in 3D in several years. First up will be CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S JOURNEY OF MAN in 3D. In this IMAX original production, Cirque du Soleil’s internationally acclaimed performing artists appear in a dramatic fantasy, shot in the high-definition IMAX format, which celebrates the human spirit as it follows the life of one man from childhood to old age. Next is BUGS! A RAINFOREST ADVENTURE in 3D narrated by Judi Dench. Follow the life cycles of a mantis and a butterfly, from their birth to their inevitable encounter in the rainforests of Southeast Asia, where predator meets its prey.
For the 7:00pm Friday & Saturday night screening (on April 6 & 7) we’ll be joined by a representative of Cirque du Soleil to talk about their upcoming production of OVO which opens on April 5th at the Portland Expo Center. In addition, PSU PhD student Robert Richardson will be on hand with Kristie Reddick and Jessica Honaker aka The Bug Chicks to introduce some live insect specimens and talk about bugs. Finally, at the Friday evening screening, every person purchases a ticket for this special event screening will be given a raffle ticket for a chance to win a family 4-pack of tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s Portland run of OVO.
This will be a great event with surprises for both kids and adults. Tickets for the Friday and Saturday evenings will be $15 and will go on sale on Monday. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience something different at the theater! Encore screenings of the double-feature JOURNEY OF MAN and BUGS! A RAINFOREST ADVENTURE (both in 3D) will be featured once daily from Sunday through Thursday.
