IMAX® Film: Opens October 22


For the first time ever, you can watch a thrilling new Hollywood film release at the Museum of Science, in the relaxed, socially distant comfort of our Mugar Omni Theater.

Immerse yourself in the legend of Dune with the newest big-screen adaption of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestselling book. Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) directs Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Dune, filmed exclusively using IMAX® cameras that visually expand to fill the screen so you can experience more of the image with unprecedented crispness and clarity. Combined with next generation IMAX precision sound, you are in for a truly spectacular experience.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet), a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

The stellar cast also includes Zendaya, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardim, and Rebecca Ferguson.

Please note: Omni passes (including member Omni passes) are not valid for Dune film viewing on this and subsequent dates.

Help us keep our theater clean! As with our Exhibit Halls, food and drink are not permitted in this space.

Director Denis Villeneuve filmed Dune for IMAX with IMAX certified digital cameras. Among the highest quality cameras in the world, these sequences are captured with unparalleled clarity and color and are truly optimized for IMAX theaters. Subsequently, once onscreen, these sequences are brought to life unlike any other moviegoing experience in the world – visually expanding to fill the IMAX screen under the specific design of the director, drawing fans into the action like never before.
