Cities of the Future

Opens June 15

Visit some of the greatest cities on Earth and discover the innovations transforming our lives in this dynamic IMAX® film! Narrated by critically acclaimed actor John Krasinski.

Step into the future and discover the exciting innovations engineers are working on right now to help meet the challenges of a changing world. Renewable energy will be our primary power source, solar energy beamed down from space will power entire cities, smart buildings and greener infrastructure will keep us cool, and we’ll travel on aerial highways in individualized pods that run on little or no energy. We’ll also ride in electric flying vehicles! Traffic jams? A thing of the past!

This isn’t science fiction. Experience it as only possible on the IMAX® Dome screen in the Mugar Omni Theater! 

Cities of the Future is produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films in partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers.
