IMAX movie takes viewers to Ice Age

Hendricks County Flyer

INDIANAPOLIS — Mammoths, saber-toothed cats, giant sloths, and other forgotten creatures arrive on the Downtown Indy IMAX screen in "Titans of the Ice Age 3D," starting Nov. 15. The film comes in time to complement the Indiana State Museum’s newest exhibit – Ice Age Giants – which launches Nov. 16.

"Titans of the Ice Age 3D" transports viewers to an era never before seen. About 10,000 years before modern civilization and in some of the most breathtaking parts of the world, mysterious creatures roamed the Earth. With the help of computer-generated imagery, the giant screen brings to life a time when humans fought for survival, a time when majestic woolly beasts were feared and hunted by prehistoric humans.

Shot in and around the scenic views of North America, Europe, and Asia, "Titans of the Ice Age" will introduce the audience to creatures both familiar and exotic. The audience will learn about the possible fates of today’s living mammals. As our climate continues to change and humans threaten the existence of thousands of species, our animals could be lost to time like their Ice Age family was so many years ago.   

“Set in the backdrop of some of the most picturesque places, like the Rocky Mountains and Yellowstone National Park, the lifelike computer-generated creatures in 'Titans of the Ice Age' will blow viewers away,” said Craig Mince, theater manager of the Downtown Indy IMAX. “There’s no better place to see giant mammoths and other Ice Age mammals than on our six-story screen with 12,000 watts of digital surround sound.”

Movie tickets are $9.50 for adults and $6 for children ages 2 to 12. 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.
