Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure ( IMAX )

Unlike many other films about the famous explorer, this documentary retraces the actual steps of his ill-fated journey to the South Pole. While providing a concise summary of the 1914-16 expedition, this breath-taking feature employs exacting recreations and flyover footage of the same harsh terrain that Shackleton and his men traversed, by land and sea. One of the greatest survival stories of all time, and a testament to heroism and human endurance; all 28 men miraculously survived nearly two years in the barren, frigid Antarctic after their ship, the Endurance, was caught in pack ice. Along with the stunning IMAX footage are stills and film shot by Frank Hurley, the expedition's official photographer.
