Running with dinosaurs in 3D movie experience

Submitted by on May 27, 2009 – 7:23 amNo Comment


We have been really lucky with the weather during our little break. It was mostly sunny and not too hot, perfect for sightseeing. The only spot of rain was on Monday morning, by then we already had enough of wandering around and were happy to do something different. We took the opportunity to go and see a 3D movie at the IMAX ® cinema. It was a truly remarkable experience. We saw Dinosaurs Alive, a documentary narrated by Michael Douglas that brings back some of the familiar favourite dinosaurs in 3D through the magic of scientifically accurate computer-generated animation. The film wasn’t just fun for adults and kids alike, but it was 40 minutes of truly educational footage featuring the earliest dinosaurs of the Triassic Period to the monsters of the Cretaceous brought back to life for the giant IMAX ® screen.

The photography was excellent and you felt you were actually flying over the Gobi desert and the dramatic sandstone buttes of New Mexico.

A few times we jumped out of our seats when the T-rex ran towards us with its mouth open, but apart from that it wasn’t scary at all. Surprisingly the special glasses you need to wear to enjoy the 3D experience are inoffensive and you even forget they are there.
