The Omnitheater has been taking viewers to places they’ve never seen before more than 40 years. That tradition continues in this spring, when CUBA makes its debut in the William L. McKnight-3M Omnitheater at the Science Museum of Minnesota. In this giant screen journey to our once-mysterious southern neighbor, viewers will see the resilience and determination of a remarkable island nation through the eyes of a historian, a ballerina, and a team of scientists. 

Head south to meet the people who are committed to restoring Cuba’s rich architectural heritage, which dates back to the 16th century. Meet a student at the Cuban National Ballet School, the largest ballet school in the world. And dive deep into Cuba’s coral reefs, which are the healthiest of any Caribbean nation, with a team of marine biologists. What is it about the island’s history that contributes to this environmental success story?

Through incredible historic photography and modern-day giant screen footage, this new film will lift the veil on this world unto itself – a rarely-seen nation of history, art, and science.
