Mysteries of the Great Lakes
It takes a drop of water nearly 400 years to travel from the headwaters of Lake Superior to the edge of Lake Ontario. Along the way, the water passes by towering cliffs dotted with early Native American pictographs, caribou and moose grazing on the shores, over giant prehistoric sturgeon lurking among thousands of shipwrecks and past nearly 40 million people who live along the more than 10,000 miles of
coastline. It is a dramatic journey through some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. Now, you can witness the Mysteries of theGreat Lakes on the only screen large enough to reveal them – IMAX!
Rated: G | Length: 40 minutes
Buckle up. SUPER SPEEDWAY puts audiences in the cockpit of an Indy car and catapults them into world championship auto racing action at mind-bending speeds in excess of 230 miles per hour. At the core of the film's action is Michael Andretti and the Newman/Haas racing team for which he drives. Together, driver and team test a newly fabricated car and ultimately drive it in hot pursuit of the championship
in the PP CART World Series. Michael's efforts are seen through the eyes of his father, racing legend Mario Andretti, who participates in testing the new car and reflects on his own racing experiences and on the art, science and risk of high-speed competition. Set against the drama of the track are two story lines that follow the remarkable craft of creating Indy cars: the restoration of a 1964 roadster - a
thoroughbred once driven at Indianapolis - and the building of Michael Andretti's state-of-the-art Indy car at the Lola car plant in England.
Rated: G | Length: 48 minutes

Everest is the dramatic true story of a team of climbers who found hope, strength and triumph in the wake of tragedy. Their successful ascent of Mount Everest just days after fellow mountaineers and friends died there, is a compelling story about the human spirit and a mountain they love, respect and sometimes fear. Everest takes audiences across creaking icefalls and gaping chasms, up dangerous, towering cliffs, through a harrowing rescue, and into the danger zone of oxygen-thin altitude.
