Seeing a film in IMAX reveals details you’d never notice otherwise, much as reading a gigantic version of a book reveals the plot points etched in tiny print in the middle of every letter "O." Catch all the finer points with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a movie night for two at the IMAX Theater at the Indiana State Museum (up to a $33 total value). The night includes:
- Two tickets to Born to be Wild (up to a $19 value)
- Two regular drinks (a $6.50 value)
- Two regular popcorns (a $7.50 value)
The IMAX Theater at the Indiana State Museum sweeps moviegoers into the thrilling 3D worlds of elephants across the Kenyan savannah and orangutans in the rainforests of Borneo. Academy Award–winning IMAX technology brings tales of orphaned animals to life in Born to be Wild, a touching account of human and animal kinship that documents the efforts of famed primatologist Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas and prominent conservationist Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick to rescue and raise orangutans and elephants. Like all of life’s most important moments, the movie is narrated by Morgan Freeman, and a score by Mark Mothersbaugh intensifies the film’s emotional impact. During the showing, viewers munch on regular-size bags of popcorn and sip fountain drinks of their choice. Check the theater's showtimes to ensure that you don’t show up in the middle of a screening of the projectionist’s home videos of himself projecting his home videos at home.
Housed inside the Indiana State Museum, the six-story IMAX screen transports audiences to worlds they may have only imagined—shrinking them to insect size or inviting them along on migratory birds’ annual sojourn. Besides panoramic, nationally recognized documentaries, the theater screens films of local significance, the occasional art house film, and the projectionists’ vacation slideshows.
