Experience the harrowing 1996 EVEREST expedition in breathtaking IMAX® during a special evening showing at Discovery Place Science.
EVEREST is the dramatic true story of a team of climbers who found hope, strength and triumph in the wake of tragedy. Their successful ascent of Mount Everest just days after fellow mountaineers and friends died there is a compelling story about the human spirit and a mountain they love, respect and sometimes fear.
Shown on the largest IMAX screen in the Carolinas, EVEREST takes audiences across creaking ice falls and gaping chasms, up dangerous, towering cliffs, through a harrowing rescue, and into the danger zone of oxygen-thin altitude. The 40-minute film also reveals how this tallest mountain was formed and continues to evolve, how high altitude challenges a climber's physical and mental capabilities, and how Sherpa culture permeates the Mount Everest experience.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Film starts at 7:00 p.m.
Beer, wine and snacks will be available for purchase from Curio City Kitchen.
