The experience of spaceflight is never more vividly shown than when seen on a screen eight stories tall. Please join us for a special donation ceremony and discussion about creating IMAX cameras, making these large format films in space, and the future of space-flown IMAX cameras at the museum. You’ll hear from people involved in all aspects of the IMAX story: a co-creator of the cameras, an IMAX filmmaker, the sponsor of the camera project, an astronaut who twice used the cameras in space, and the Museum’s camera curator.

If you’ve seen an IMAX film or just like taking pictures and dreaming about spaceflight, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear the how’s and why’s of bringing spaceflight down to Earth for the gigantic screen.
