An ‘Astronomical’ IMAX Prize Pack

by Erica

My daughter loves to learn about outer space. I sometimes catch her watching the NASA channel, completely engrossed. She has dreams of becoming an astronaut someday. I know that she would LOVE for me to take her to Hubble 3D at our nearby IMAX. In fact, I think I will have to. It will be quite the treat for her.

Experience the gripping story – full of hope, crushing disappointment, dazzling ingenuity, bravery, and triumph – in Hubble 3D, the seventh awe-inspiring film from the award-winning IMAX® Space Team.

Through the power of IMAX® 3D, Hubble 3D, which opens on August 20th, will enable movie-goers to journey through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mysteries of our celestial surroundings, and accompany space-walking astronauts as they attempt the most difficult and important tasks in NASA’s history. The film will offer an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy and highlight its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves.

Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, Hubble 3D reunites the Space Station 3D filmmaking team, led by Producer/Director Toni Myers. James Neihouse, Director of Photography, also doubles as the Astronaut crew trainer. Judy Carroll is Associate Producer, and Graeme Ferguson, Co-founder of IMAX and pioneer Producer of many IMAX space films, is Executive Producer. Hubble 3D is an IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures production, in cooperation with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

To celebrate the wide release of Hubble 3D, we have an ‘Astronomical’ IMAX Prize Pack to award one lucky reader.

Package includes:

  • 1 Hubble 3D poster signed by: Commander Scott Altman, Astronaut Mike Massimino, and Astronaut Gregory Johnson from the STS-125 crew
  • 1 youth Hubble 3D t-shirt
  • 1 kaleidoscope kit
  • A family 4-pack of IMAX tickets

 
To enter, please leave a comment below. To make it fun, feel free to finish this sentence in your comment – “If I were an astronaut, I would be most excited about ____________.”

This giveaway is open to US residents only and ends on Friday, August 20th. We will announce our winner on Saturday, August 21st. For our complete giveaway rules, please see our site’s terms and conditions of use.

If I were an astronaut, I would be excited about the weightlessness. How fun would it be to do flips without much effort. Maybe I could actually beat my 3 y.o. in ourtumble contests. (Also would love to see Earth from above).

Oh, you DEFINITELY should take your daughter to see Hubble 3D, it was awesome! I’d love to see it again. My kids are little, so I spent half of it in the bathroom and the other half in the concession line, but what I saw was incredible.

If I were an astronaut, I would be most excited to see Earthrise.

If I were an astronaut I would be most excited about the peace and quiet that an astronaut is able to experience and the WONDER of that moment seeing everything so BIG and yet so small before them. I always said after having 6 kids I deserve and OUT OF THIS WORLD vacation…I guess that would be it! (although I know it really is hard work and a very taxing but wonderful job)

Mamas, do not ever discount your children’s dreams…they might not make it to be a true astronaut, but my husband grew up in a town of less than 2000 and works with a small research & development company that works with NASA sometimes. The pay is not great but the experience has been amazing. He actually got to ride on the KC35? called the “vomit comet” to test a zero gravity payload years back. And now working with individual companies that want to explore space not funded by the government. There are SO many different ways to follow your dreams AND your stars!

thanks for offering this! My kids would love to see this more than anything, especially my BIGGEST kid! (hubby)
