The giant-screen documentary adventure Hidden Universe takes audiences on an extraordinary journey deep into space in the cinematic medium that transports audiences like no other. With the full power of IMAX® 3D cinematography, the deepest reaches of our universe are brought to life with unprecedented clarity through real images captured by the world’s most powerful telescopes. 

Mesmerizing, high-resolution 3D images from space allow moviegoers to explore the earliest galaxies and travel the terrain of Mars; witness images of distant celestial structures including stunning new views of the Sun; and peer deep inside the universe’s most mysterious nebulae where stars are born. Seen for the first time on the giant IMAX screen, these dramatic new images offer fresh insight into the origins and evolution of the universe.
