Special Effects has concluded its run at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
You are invited behind the scenes of Hollywood's biggest movies.
See scenes from movies like Star Wars, King Kong, and Independence Day come to life in a dazzling, giant screen way.
Special Effects features eye-popping visual effects from four motion pictures, giving you a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what makes some of the films that define movie-making possible. You'll see how movie model makers, matte painters, pyrotechnicians, camera operators, animators, and computer graphics artists rely on principles of visual perception to fool you. And you'll discover how they manipulate visual cues that we use to orient ourselves to the world—from color and light to motion and depth—to create the illusion of reality on screen.
Let the Omnitheater's nine-story domed screen take you on an adventure to discover the magic, the imagination, and the technology that makes anything possible.
Run Time: 45 minutes
