Omnifest 2014: January 9 - February 28
All around amazing!

Get a front-row seat to experience larger-than-life adventures—from the crystal clear waters of Mexico's Guadalupe Island to a seat on board the space shuttle Discovery, more than 300 miles above the Earth's surface. Omnifest 2014 will bring five big films—both new and favorites—to the William L. McKnight-3M Omnitheater's giant screen.

Great White SharkGreat White Shark

Brand new to the Omnitheater, Great White Shark unravels the mystery of a creature humans love to fear—the much maligned, misrepresented and misunderstood great white shark. This film goes to the depths of human daring to tell the true story of its role atop the oceanic food chain. View the Trailer

Blue Planet is a portrait of the planet we call home, featuring breathtaking footage from five different space shuttle missions. From this unique vantage point, you'll see the forces that affect our planet, from both within and without: volcanoes, earthquakes, typhoons, and perhaps the most powerful force, humankind.

Only the Omnitheater's nine-story domed screen can do justice to the great circle of volcanoes that rings the Pacific Ocean. In this Science Museum of Minnesota original production, you'll have a front row seat for the spectacular eruptions of Mount St. Helens and Sakurajima in Japan, see the birth of a new volcano in southern Chile, and meet people who live within the shadows of some of the world's most active volcanoes.
