Take a breathtaking giant screen IMAX 3D tour of deep space with the release of Hidden Universe 3D, from Australian filmmakers December Cinema Productions. Hidden Universe 3D opens at IMAX Melbourne Museum on 12 September 2013.

Bringing the universe to life on the giant IMAX screen with unprecedented clarity, the film incorporates mesmerising real images captured by the world’s most powerful telescopes including the Very Large Telescope (VLT), the ALMA and the Hubble Space Telescope.

Audiences will explore the earliest galaxies and travel the terrain of Mars; peer deep inside vivid clouds of nebula to see previously unseen forms such as pulsars and gas jet streams; glimpse new stars being born in the Carina Nebula; and witness high-definition images of distant celestial structures including stunning new images of the sun.

Hidden Universe 3D offers new images of space from the world’s most powerful telescopes,” said producer Stephen Amezdroz. “This new technology allows scientists to peer back even further into space, revealing secrets that until recently were completely hidden.”

In an age where space tourism has become reality, Hidden Universe 3D offers an inspiring story of human endeavor and provides new insight into how the Universe was formed from a prime IMAX seat with a magnificent point of view.
