Not that long ago, traveling between continents was a migration. Now, on any given day, 100,000 flights transport people and products between any two points on Earth in a matter of hours. Indeed, the airplane may be the closest thing we have to a time machine.
There’s no question that the airplane has changed our world, but do we really understand exactly how much? Beginning Friday, October 12, Omnitheater viewers will find out in Living in the Age of Airplanes.
This giant screen film will renew your appreciation for this amazing invention as it explores the wonder and grandeur of flying on the only screen large enough to convey it. Filmed in 18 countries across all seven continents, Living in the Age of Airplanes explores the countless ways the airplane affects our lives - even when we don’t fly.
Narrated by Harrison Ford and featuring fascinating history, breathtaking visuals, and soaring sound, Living in the Age of Airplanes delivers an Omnitheater experience like no other – a tribute to one of the most extraordinary and awe-inspiring inventions of the modern world. Join us for a wondrous trip around the globe.
