ongoing july 1-october 23, 2009:

in case you’re in the mood for some brain food, starting this month the imax at hmns is showing a documentary called journey to mecca:

Journey to Mecca is an IMAX® dramatic and documentary feature, filmed in Saudi Arabia and Morocco in both English and Arabic, with background Berber. The film tells the amazing story of Ibn Battuta, the greatest explorer of the Old World, following his first pilgrimage between 1325 and 1326 from Tangier to Mecca. His perilous journey resonates with adventure while presenting an unforgettable picture of Islamic civilization during the 14th century, culminating with Battuta’s first Hajj. The story is book-ended by a close-up look at the contemporary Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca that draws three million Muslims from around the world every year, to perform rituals that have taken place for over 1,400 years.

wednesday, july 1 – friday, october 23, 2009 at 11:00am
