Volcanoes Come to Life With Volcanoes 3D The Fire Of Creation

It felt like I was at the volcano!

                                    My family was treated to a show at the DynaTheater.

  My family and I saw Volcanoes 3D The Fire Of Creation yesterday and it was so amazing! I had experienced movies in digital 3D so I thought I knew what to expect but this show was so much better. I was amazed just at the five-story giant screen in the museum and how many rows of seats there were. My boys, of course, wanted to sit way up at the top. It really did not matter where we sat at every seat in the theater was a good seat with optimum viewing throughout the renovated theater. The enhanced large-format DynaTheater now features the world's first 2D/3D digital 4K dual projection system.

Audiences will be on the edge of their seats as they discover molten worlds and exploding craters in this adrenaline-filled, immersive experience that only IMAX®/Giant Screen films can provide.

  Just like at the movies we got those stylish 3D glasses before the movie started. The DynaTheater may be in the New Mexico Museum of History but it felt like a movie theater to us. They even had popcorn and other snacks to purchase! We were ready to explore some volcanoes. My boys had seen other movies in this awesome theater on school field trips so they told me it was going to feel like I was at a live volcano. My oldest son in the red shirt did not want to sit next to me as he knew that I would jump at the scary parts. So I sat next to my husband.

  The movie started off with us looking over a hot bubbly volcano and I felt like I was there. The movie took us on an adventure with intrepid explorer Carsten Peter as he discovered an active volcano in Indonesia. I felt like I was traveling with Carsten Peter as he traveled across the globe to see the archeological ghost town of Pompeii and witness the devastating effects of the recent Kilauea eruption in Hawaii. When Carsten was at the edge of the volcano, I felt like I was going to fall in the hot fire. I felt like squeezing my husband's arm when Carsten went down on a rope to get closer to the live volcano. This amazing man has been fascinated by volcanoes since he was a kid.

Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation is a tale of science, culture, and thrilling adventure.  Earth is a planet born of fire.  For billions of years, volcanoes have helped create the world we know.  From the continents to the air we breathe and even life itself, all have their origins in fire.  These processes have created extraordinary ecosystems and wildlife habitats.  With over 500 active volcanoes, the Earth is bursting at the seams with these forces of mass construction.  The story of volcanoes is the story of the planet’s creation and the story of us.

   As I watched the Volcanoes 3D movie on the huge screen, I learn so much about how volcanoes formed on the earth long ago. I also learned many other facts, it was like a history lesson and an awesome movie all combined in one. The digital 3D effects and surround sound made me feel like I was right with Carsten Peter and his team as they explored the area around the volcanoes. When the movie was over I was glad that I did not live near a volcano, that was until my husband mentioned that the dormant petroglyphs behind our house can wake up at any time. These volcanoes near my home erupted millions of years ago so the chances of them erupting is rare but it can happen.

 The Volcanoes 3D The Fire Of Creation is just one of the many awesome digital 3D movies playing at the DynaTheater. After we enjoyed the volcano movie, my family and I explored the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science. There was even a volcano exhibit in the museum that had us walking over a glass floor that resembled the hot lava of a volcano. My favorite exhibit in the museum was all the gems and rocks that had me dreaming for a necklace made out of them. My boys enjoyed the space exhibit and my husband like looking at all the dinosaurs.

The DynaTheater is located in the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, 1801 Mountain Rd NW, Albuquerque NM, 87104.  For information on tickets and show times, please visit the website at www.naturalhistoryfoundation.org
