NEW FILM IN THE MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY’S GIANT DOME THEATER TAKES GUESTS ON JOURNEY THROUGH EARTH’S HISTORY
CHICAGO, Ill.—Journey through the history of an incredible planet created by violent collisions in space—Earth. Starting May 25, The Story of Earth will guide guests at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (MSI) on an adventure exploring our planet’s rich history inside the Museum’s Giant Dome Theater, the only five-story domed theater in Chicago.
The film, narrated by actress Rachel Ward, highlights the work of geologists traveling the globe to piece together clues of Earth’s history. Audiences will join this research team as they explore Australia and Iceland to gather evidence on the extraordinary chain of events that made life not only possible, but sustainable.
The Story of Earth, produced by December Media, uses simulations based on scientific data to create visually stunning recreations of Earth from billions of years ago, including revealing the convection of Earth’s inner mantle. Guests are fully immersed as they witness how, over billions of years, Earth transformed from an inhabitable ball of molten rock into a paradise covered with oceans of water.
The Story of Earth will show inside MSI’s Giant Dome Theater through spring of 2019. It will be shown daily at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. (also 4 p.m. on extended hour days). This film is not included in Museum Entry and requires an additional timed-entry ticket. For more information on The Story of Earth, visit www.msichicago.org/giantdometheater.
