September 17, 2019—The Museum of Science, Boston and Cosmic Picture
have announced that they have entered into an agreement to produce a
film that celebrates New England and its people, exclusively for the
large format dome screen at the Museum’s Mugar Omni Theater. The film,
an original production expected to be released in 2021, will inspire
audiences with stunning visuals and stories featuring the innovations,
natural wonders, residents, landmarks, seasons, and characteristics that
define New England. The feature length OMNI® film (30-40 min) will take inspiration from the short film New England Time Capsule,
which delighted millions of Museum visitors for over a decade. The
Museum secured funding for the film from MathWorks, a long-time champion
of the Mugar Omni Theater and the Museum.
