BOSTON– The Museum of Science is proud to present the New England premiere of Arabia, a new giant-screen documentary opening to the public in the Museum’s Mugar Omni Theater, Friday, February 12, 2010. On Thursday, February 11, 2010, the Museum will celebrate the film debut with an evening premiere event, which will feature food, drink, presentations, and entertainment inspired by the film. At this exclusive premiere, guests can meet 24-year-old Saudi-Arabian filmmaker, Hamzah Jamjoom, who will share his experience as a key figure in the film. Limited tickets are available to the public.
The Museum’s newest Omni presentation is a kaleidoscopic portrait of Arabia that delves into its storied past and oncoming future through a mix of contemporary images of modern-day life, epic historical recreations of ancient civilizations, and digital visual effects. Through the magic of New England’s only IMAX dome theater, audiences can ride across the dunes with a camel caravan, dive into the treasure-laden Red Sea, explore the ruins of a towering lost city, journey back in time to the Islamic golden age of invention, and join three million Muslims on the Hajj pilgrimage–the largest gathering on Earth. Narrated by three modern-day Arabians, the film will introduce audiences to the young Arabians transforming tomorrow’s world.
For many people, Arabia will be a first chance to experience life in a part of the world usually glimpsed only in news clips. The film presents a surprising and illuminating journey that can serve as a bridge between two cultures that have long misunderstood one another.
Arabia is sponsored by The MathWorks.
Admission to the Mugar Omni Theater is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors (60 ) and $7 for children (3-11).
