In Holland's only IMAX theater, ultra-large format documentary films are projected onto a screen on the inside of a giant dome, for an audience who settle back in 300 comfortable chairs to watch the show, immersed in dramatic digital images and waves of surround-sound audio effects. A new film is screened every hour from a roster of 6 or 7 titles covering subjects as diverse as geographical treasures such as the Alps and the Grand Canyon, animals, underwater exploration, and flight and space travel. The films themselves are in Dutch but an English translation is available via headphones.
