Texas Spirit Theater
After her father unexpectedly dies, young Ella (Lily James) finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and stepsisters, who reduce her to scullery maid. Despite her circumstances, she refuses to despair. An invitation to a palace ball gives Ella hope that she might reunite with the dashing stranger (Richard Madden) she met in the woods, but her stepmother prevents her from going. Help arrives in the form of a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) who has a magic touch for ordinary things. From director Kenneth Branagh, this film is a live-action retelling inspired by the classic fairy tale.
Living in the Age of Airplanes
How has the airplane changed the world as we know it? Using stunning footage from 18 countries across seven continents, this film shows the profound ways aviation has transformed our lives by connecting countries and cultures to expand our human horizons. Narrated by actor and pilot Harrison Ford, Living in the Age of Airplanes is appropriate for all ages. Run time is 47 minutes.
The Bullock Texas State History Museum has been proud to provide the largest IMAX® screen experience in Texas since opening in 2001. To build on this history, the Museum’s IMAX® Theatre underwent a digital projection system conversion. The existing IMAX® systems were replaced with a new state-of-the-art digital projector, upgraded audio, and a new screen giving Bullock Museum movie fans access to a wider array of first-run features, repertory films, and educational documentaries than ever before.

Texas Spirit Theater
Hold on for a wild ride in the Texas Spirit Theater, Austin's only 4D special effects theater. In a cinema for the senses, films showing here have great stories and beautiful scenery, but they also have crackling lightning, howling wind, pounding rain, and a few other seat-rumbling surprises. Enjoy these dynamic films daily: Star of Destiny, an epic journey through Texas history, and Shipwrecked, the story of French explorer Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle's doomed Texas expedition as told by a young boy, one of its few survivors.
