Montreal, February 11, 2019 – Starting February 14, the IMAX TELUS Theatre at the Montréal Science Centre invites you to a very hot immersive experience. Volcanoes 3D, the new IMAX movie, takes you where few humans dare to venture: into the heart of a volcano. 

From Pompeii to Hawaii

Join intrepid National Geographic photographer Carsten Peter as he travels the globe exploring this mighty natural phenomenon. From the tragic events at Pompeii more than 2000 years ago to the eruption of Kilauea in Hawaii in 2018, Volcanoes 3D reveals not only the devastating power of volcanoes, but also their surprising ability to create new ecosystems.

The ideal subject for IMAX laser technology

With its spectacular cinematography and state-of-the-art 3D technology, Volcanoes 3D offers viewers a thrilling immersive experience without exposing them to the lava erupting at over 700 degrees Celsius. With more than 500 active volcanoes on the planet, this riveting documentary plunges daringly into a very relevant topic while fully exploiting IMAX with laser technology. A towering adventure on the big screen.
