Humpback Whales 3D
See the hidden world of nature’s most awe-inspiring marine mammal
Humpback Whales, an educational documentary featuring a mix of stunning 3D imagery, underwater splendor and scientific exploration, shows daily in the Bullock Texas State History Museum IMAX® Theatre. MacGillivray Freeman Films lends its legendary giant-screen storytelling expertise to one of the most enormous and vastly fascinating creatures on Earth.
Narrated by two-time Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor and presented by Pacific Life, Humpback Whales is an immersive ocean adventure that invites audiences to dive head-first into the mysterious realm of these 55-foot, 50-ton aquatic mammals captured for the first time with IMAX® 3D cameras. Once feared as monsters, and very nearly hunted to extinction, today humpbacks are in the midst of a slow but remarkable recovery.
Set in the spectacular waters of Alaska, Hawaii and the remote islands of Tonga, this film offers audiences an up-close look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play and take care of their young. Join a team of researchers on screen as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out why humpbacks are the most acrobatic of all whales, why they sing their haunting songs, and why these animals migrate up to 10,000 miles round-trip every year.
