As astoundingly beautiful as it is technically dazzling, ‘Space Station 3D’ is the first-ever IMAX 3D space film.
Audiences will travel 220 miles above Earth at 17,500 mph to experience ‘Space Station 3D’ - the greatest engineering feat since landing a man on the Moon.
Narrated by Tom Cruise, ‘Space Station 3D’ is the story of this unique partnership of 16 nations building a laboratory in outer space--a permanent facility for the study of the effects of long-duration exposure to zero gravity and the necessary first step towards the global co-operative effort needed if man is to someday set foot on Mars.
The new IMAX film documents life aboard humanity’s new home-away-from-home. ‘Space Station 3D’ chronicles the challenges, setbacks and triumphs…and ultimately, the shared international victory of men and women whose dreams exceed the limits of life on this Earth.

I was blown away
I\'ve never seen an experience like this on screen, the 3d works perfectly and me and my 5year old were entranced. The candid photography on the space station and the build up makes you feel that you are right there. There is enough history to keep the achievements in there right perspective (they are extraordinary) and the camera positions for the rocket take off sequences gives you the real impact of the power of lift off. My seat was rumbling not just by the amazing sound system...
I highly recommend you see this...we will be talking about it for a long time...
