Audiences have been in awe of our universe with past films such as HUBBLE, Cosmic Voyage and others. The Air Force Museum Theatre is excited to bring breathtaking images of our universe to you once again, this time in 3D digital projection on the largest digital screen in Southwest Ohio. Hidden Universe 3D is now showing daily at 12 noon and 2 p.m.

The giant-screen documentary adventure Hidden Universe 3D takes audiences on an extraordinary journey deep into space in the cinematic medium that transports audiences like no other. With the full power of IMAX 3D cinematography, the deepest reaches of our universe are brought to life with unprecedented clarity through real images captured by the world's most powerful telescopes -- shown on the giant screen and in 3D for the first time.

Stunning, high-resolution 3D images of space allow moviegoers to explore the earliest galaxies and nebulae, watch stars being born in vivid clouds of gas and dust, tour the surface terrain of Mars, and witness images of distant celestial structures including stunning views of the Sun. Seen for the first time in giant screen 3D, these dramatic new images offer fresh insight into the origins and evolution of the universe.

Narrated by Golden Globe winner Miranda Richardson, Hidden Universe 3D is a December Cinema Productions film produced in association with Film Victoria, Swinburne University of Technology, and the European Southern Observatory (ESO). Executive produced by Emmy®-award-winning producer Tony Wright and George Adams & James Vernon. Produced in association with MacGillivray Freeman Films. Produced by Stephen Amezdroz and written and directed by Russell Scott. The musical score is by Dale Cornelius.

December Cinema Productions is a division of December Media, one of Australia's most experienced producers of award-winning live action and documentary television. With more than 20 years of experience, the company is known for its high-quality dramas, documentaries and series made for Australian and international markets. Hidden Universe 3D is the company's first film for IMAX and giant-screen theatres and follows in its long tradition of making screen-based entertainment that excites and inspires. Photos, video and production notes are available at

Hidden Universe 3D is showing daily along with Fighter Pilot 3D and Tornado Alley 3D. Hidden Universe 3D will be a highlighted film during Space Fest later this month at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. Tickets for the show will be offered at a reduced cost of $6 per person on Saturday, May 17.
