Downtown Indy IMAX honors James Dean

INDIANAPOLIS — The IMAX Theater in the Indiana State Museum will host a three-day James Dean Film Festival in conjunction with the Indiana State Museum's exhibit honoring the Hoosier-born actor, whose life and promising future was cut short.

The eternally young, handsome, and intense James Dean will be showcased in film Feb. 21-23.

In his brief career, Dean starred in just three movies, but managed to capture the hearts and attention of the country before his life tragically ended at the age of 24. The Downtown Indy IMAX invites guests to experience the legacy of Dean like never before - on the state's largest screen. Each evening of the film festival, the IMAX will show one of Dean's three movies: "East of Eden" (Feb. 21), "Rebel Without a Cause" (Feb. 22), and "Giant" (Feb. 23). These one-time showings will be presented digitally via video projector.

"The Indiana State Museum's 'Eternal James Dean' exhibit is fantastic and we wanted to join in honoring the famed actor in a way we know best - through movies," said Craig Mince, theater manager of the Downtown Indy IMAX. "With 12,000 watts of digital surround sound blasting from our six-story screen, Dean's films come to life with renewed passion. And not only can you immerse yourself in the drama on film, but also enjoy the experience with some great Indiana brews and wines."

Tickets are $5.50 per person per show. Parking is always free in the White River State Park parking garage. Patrons should bring in parking tickets for validation by the IMAX box office. To purchase tickets or to get more information, visit www.imaxindy.com. Tickets are now on sale and the one-time showtimes are as follows: "East of Eden," 7 p.m. Feb. 21; "Rebel Without a Cause," 7 p.m. Feb. 22; and "Giant," 7 p.m. Feb. 23.
