Latest Release - HUBBLE 3D
IMAX HUBBLE 3D opened to rave reviews on March 19th, 2010 and was the highest per screen gross in the country.

The film chronicles the original launch of the Hubble Space Telescope in 1990, the first repair mission to correct the flawed mirror in 1993, and the final servicing mission in 2009. James Neihouse trained the astronauts to be IMAX cameramen for all three missions, and was responsible for capturing the ground footage as well.
