12 O’Clock Boys joins Downtown Indy IMAX independent film series on Jan. 31

Unforgettable film captures intimate glimpse into Baltimore’s notorious urban dirt bike group

INDIANAPOLIS – Packs of helmetless youth on ATVs and dirt bikes converge in the streets of Baltimore, Md., popping wheelies and disregarding traffic laws. Referred to as the 12 O’Clock Boys, because they can pop a wheelie into the 12-o’clock position, they thrive in the constant cat-and-mouse game with police who are forbidden to chase them due to risk to the public. The documentary follows Pug, an adolescent boy seeking mentorship and aspiring to be a member of the group. 12 O’Clock Boys joins the Downtown Indy IMAX’s independent film series beginning Friday, Jan. 31.

Thirteen-year-old Pug sees joining the 12 O’Clock Boys as a sense of escape from Baltimore, one of America’s most dangerous and economically depressed cities. Pug’s mother, Coco, is not enthused with her son’s reckless behavior. But, Pug’s admiration for the group only intensifies when his older brother and mentor dies suddenly during the making of the film.

“Pug’s journey is one many of us can relate to – one of searching to find our place in a world of chaos,” said IMAX Theater Manager Craig Mince. “Viewers won’t see 12 O’Clock Boys anywhere else in the state – except for the Downtown Indy IMAX – when it debuts in theaters on Jan. 31.”

12 O’Clock Boys will run through Feb. 8. Movie tickets are $9.50 for adults. Parking for movie patrons is always free in the White River State Park parking garage. Patrons should bring in parking tickets for validation by the IMAX box office. To purchase tickets or to get more information, visit www.imaxindy.com. Tickets are now on sale.

Multitudes of monarch butterflies soar into Downtown Indy IMAX March 1

Mexican Consulate in Indianapolis partners with IMAX to showcase Mexico through Flight of the Butterflies 3D

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – A larger-than-life scientific adventure of the marveled monarch butterfly lands in The IMAX Theater in the Indiana State Museum on March 1. Filmed primarily in Mexico, IMAX officials have partnered with the Mexican Consulate in Indianapolis to showcase Mexico’s beautiful landscape and raise awareness about the incredible migratory monarch butterfly.

Based on true events, Flight of the Butterflies 3D follows the epic journey of the iconic monarch butterfly in one of the most incredible migrations on Earth. The determined scientist, Dr. Fred Urquhart, who spent 40 years trying to discover the mysteries surrounding their journey and secret winter hideaway, brings the film to life.

Weighing less than a penny, the monarch butterfly unbelievably migrates annually across a continent – with pinpoint navigational accuracy – to a place it has never been. As the film illustrates, it takes two to three generations of butterflies to migrate north from Mexico through the U.S. to Canada and one “super generation” to complete the migration back south to Mexico.

Flight of the Butterflies 3D will arrive at the Downtown IMAX partially due to a partnership with the Mexican Consulate of Indianapolis to showcase the country’s incredible landscape and unparalleled beauty.

“When the monarch butterflies perform their migration, it is further evidence of contact between the U.S. and Mexico,” said Consul Juan Manuel Solana, Consul of Mexico in Indianapolis. “The Consulate of Mexico is pleased to have this partnership with IMAX, and above all, offer the public of Indiana the opportunity to enjoy learning about this huge migration experience.”

Flight of the Butterflies 3D arrives just before the Indianapolis Zoo’s launch of Butterfly Kaleidoscope on March 22.

“There’s no better way to discover this compelling, scientific true story of the monarch butterfly – 40 years in the making – other than on the state’s largest movie screen,” said Craig Mince, theater manager of the Downtown Indy IMAX. “The brilliance of Mexico and the elegance of the monarch come to life with such magnificent beauty on our six-story screen. You can almost feel their wings flutter against your face.”

Tickets are $9.50 for adults, $7.50 for seniors and $6.00 for children. Parking is always free in the White River State Park parking garage. Patrons should bring in parking tickets for validation by the IMAX box office. To purchase tickets or to get more information, visit www.imaxindy.com.

INDIANAPOLIS – For the 13th year in a row, visitors to White River State Park attractions will receive free admission and free parking on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 21, with a canned good donation (one can per person, per attraction). The Park’s partnership with Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana has resulted in more than 75 tons of non-perishable, canned food donations over the years from this one-day, annual event.  That weight of food is the equivalent of approximately 28 zoo elephants, or 15 mastodons that once roamed Indiana, or 150 western horses, or 468,000 professional baseballs, or 273 full-length IMAX movie reel platters, or 109,000 collegiate-level basketballs.

“We are pleased to once again partner with White River State Park,” said Cindy Hubert, Gleaners’ president & CEO.  “The drive not only helps Hoosiers in need, but allows families to enjoy these wonderful facilities at no cost.  We’re grateful for the Park’s generosity as well as their patrons!”

Space Junk 3D lands at the Downtown Indy IMAX® on Sept. 21, 2012

INDIANAPOLIS – “After half a century of space exploration, we’re now suddenly faced with what has long been a staple of science fiction—an orbiting junkyard of cast-off space debris.”  — Space Junk 3D

Space Junk 3D, presented locally by the Indiana Space Grant Consortium, is about to drop out of orbit at the IMAX Theater in the Indiana State Museum. Experience mind-boggling collisions, both natural and man-made and soar for the stunning depths of Meteor Crater to an unprecedented view of Earth’s increasingly crowded orbits – 22,000 miles above.

Starting September 21, 2012, join foremost expert Don Kessler, the “Father of Space Junk,” as he guides viewers through the challenges we face in protecting them and forging a new age of space discovery. Through the power of IMAX ®3D, moviegoers will be transported high above the earth via Indiana’s largest movie screen.

“This is an amazing film and one that is ideally experienced from the vantage point of our spectacular IMAX screen,” says Craig Mince, theater manager of the Downtown Indy IMAX. “And thanks to the Indiana Space Grant Consortium, we are able to present this film locally to open our eyes to the fact that what goes up doesn’t always come down. It’s a film for all ages and a story to be understood by all ages.”

In the film, Kessler points out that when two pieces of space debris collide, they produce hundreds of smaller pieces of debris. These can cross paths with other pieces of junk and create more fragments, and so on. Because there’s typically nothing to pull orbiting space junk down out of the sky, the cloud of debris only grows.

With 3D visualizations of the swarming clouds of junk, animations of collisions between everything from satellites to galaxies, and footage from Meteor Crater in Arizona, the film gives viewers plenty to lose sleep over. But it’s not all doom and gloom. The final minutes reveal real plans astronomers and space engineers have to clear the litter.

Space Junk 3D has been rated G and has a run time of 37 minutes. For show times and ticket information, visit www.imaxindy.com. Tickets are now on sale. To view the trailer for this film, go to www.spacejunk3d.com.

These specific sequences, which will expand to fill the entire screen exclusively in IMAX, will deliver unprecedented crispness and clarity and a truly immersive experience for moviegoers.

“There’s no better theater in the state to experience and watch this epic-drama unfold than at our Downtown Indy IMAX,” said Craig Mince, theater manager of the Downtown Indy IMAX. “With 12,000 watts of digital surround sound blasting from our six-story screen, this movie will melt your face!”

Sequences shot in 35mm have been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Adult tickets are $16 and children ages 2-12 are $12. NOW AVAILABLE: matinee pricing Mondays – Fridays before 5 p.m. and Saturdays, Sundays and holidays before 2 p.m.: adult admission is $13 and children ages 2-12 are $11.

INDIANAPOLIS – Thanks to a recently acquired liquor license, movie goers are now able to enjoy locally crafted adult beverages as of yesterday for all features after 5 p.m. at the IMAX Theater in the Indiana State Museum. This Downtown Indy IMAX already showcases local providers of coffee, popcorn and other concessions and the new liquor license will expand those offerings for adults aged 21 and over.

“Our theater is in a unique position to partner with local brewers and vintners to provide a truly Indiana experience for our adult patrons,” says Craig Mince, theater manager of the Downtown Indy IMAX. “We believe our expanded beverage options will help us attract a broader base of movie goers who might enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine with a film.”

The timing is in sync with an energetic fan base already purchasing tickets for the release of The Dark Knight Rises, the third film of the critically acclaimed trilogy that introduces Gotham City’s newest super villains, Bane and leading lady Selina Kyle. This highly-anticipated epic conclusion hits the Downtown Indy IMAX Theater on July 20.

Sequences of The Dark Knight Rises shot in 35mm have been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

“I can’t wait to settle in with a cold beer on a hot evening and enjoy this film,” added Mince. “Plus our parking at White River State Park is always free for moviegoers so come out and enjoy the Park before or after the film without having to find another place to leave the car.”

Until then and throughout the summer, the theater will continue to run two stellar films – To The Arctic 3D and Tornado Alley 3D. Both of these films have been rated G and have a run time of 40-45 minutes. For show times and ticket information, visit www.imaxindy.com. Tickets are now on sale.
