Under the Sea splashes into Fernbank Museum’s IMAX Theatre

Underwater Adventure Narrated by Jim Carrey

ATLANTA—Experience the sea and its marvelous marine life in the giant-screen film Under the Sea, returning to the IMAX® Theatre at Fernbank Museum of Natural History from May 25-September 5, 2013.  Through the visual majesty of the IMAX® format, audiences are transported to the crystal blue domains of diverse underwater dwellers, including the Leafy Sea Dragon and the Flamboyant Cuttlefish.

Under the Sea journeys to some of the most exotic and isolated undersea locations on Earth, including South Australia, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Coral Triangle islands of Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. Audiences experience face-to-face encounters with some of the most mysterious and stunning creatures of the sea.  It offers a uniquely inspirational and entertaining way to explore the beauty and natural wonder of the oceans, as well as the impact global climate change has on them.  

“Most people will never encounter these creatures face to face in the wild, and IMAX is able to bring audiences as close to swimming alongside them as they’ll ever get,” said producer Toni Myers.

The film is narrated by Jim Carrey. Warner Bros. Pictures and IMAX Corporation present Under the Sea, which has been rated G for general audiences and has a running time of 40 minutes and 45 seconds. Under the Sea will show at Fernbank Museum from May 25-September 5, 2013.
