To The Arctic 3D is an extraordinary journey to a place of extremes that few ever dare to go. In this IMAX 3D film, we venture across floating ice with a mother polar bear and her two cubs as they struggle to survive; travel with a herd of caribou who journey for miles to their calving ground; plunge into the ethereal underwater world of waltzing walruses; and gaze across hundreds of miles of snow-bound peaks and a vast expanse of the Arctic Ocean, an exquisite spectacle of sapphire white.
The film will be released exclusively to select IMAX theatres starting April 20, 2012.
