Sneak Preview: To The Arctic 3D IMAX Movie

By | August 17, 2012

We were invited last week to attend a sneak preview of the newest IMAX 3D movie in The Scientific Center, To The Arctic.

I arrived late and the movie had already started but I grabbed my 3D glasses and sat, mesmerized, at the beauty of the North Pole and the white polar bears living there. How the mother bear would protect her children and how global warming is making life harder on these poor animals.

The little bears are so cute! I got out of the movie wanting a bear of my very own! The movie was interesting indeed and very educational. When it was over the guests gathered around in the Scientific Center lobby for some Ramadany refreshments.

and guess who the star of the night was? He was surrounded by almost every guest, the well known Kuwaiti astronomer Mr. Saleh Al-Ojairi! Thanks Q8 Path for taking this shot for me.

Before we left, Mr. Nawaf Al-Rudaini the PR manager of The Scientific Center asked me to wait, then he presented me with a special gift from The Scientific Center.

What’s inside? A Plasma Light from the Scientific Center gift shop!!! If you follow my blog you would remember that a while back I wrote about Plasma lights and how I wish mine was still there so I could try and take pictures of it (post). Now, thanks to Mr. Nawaf and The Scientific  Center my wish is fulfilled. I’m going to dedicate an entire post to is! Thank you Mr. Nawaf, you truly made my day!

It was a great movie night indeed. The”To the Arctic” will be available in The Scientific Center starting from the first day of Eid so if you want to take your kids somewhere both special and education why not to The Scientific Center? You can book the tickets online by going to The Scientific Center website (link) or for more information you can call 1 848 888.

    Oh, I’m super jealous, we went to The Aquarium on the second day of Eid with Oodie and I wanted to go but it was soooo busy and I wasn’t sure whether it was suitable for Oodie or not, I didn’t want it to be ‘the fight for survival’ and polar bears killing seals, seeing these pics now makes me wish that I had actually gone, perhaps I’ll just go alone. How long is it running for? any idea?

      Actually there is a scene where the seal is killed by the mama bear but its not that gruesome, only how the bear follows the seal then the seal dead and the bear and her children feasting on it. If you don’t think its appropriate for your son then don’t take him but do go alone. I expect its going to be there for quite some time.
