BUGS 3D! A Rainforest Aventure
Opens October 14, 2014


Get a bug’s eye-view of the fascinating universe of insects magnified up to 250,000 times their normal size in 3D on the BIGGEST screen in South Florida.

Uncover the bizarre, fascinating and hidden world of BUGS at the AutoNation IMAX 3D Theater! Filmed on location in the Borneo rainforest, Bugs 3D: A Rainforest Adventure brings the beautiful and dangerous universe of its tiny stars up close and personal!

Narrated by Academy Award ® Winner Judi Dench, this ground breaking film bring us face-to-face with this amazing universe where raindrops fall like hand grenades, a leaf weighs more than a car, a blade of grass soars high into the clouds and where insects are colorful and diverse. Using cutting-edge macroscopic technology and a lively soundtrack, viewers are will be introduced to a cast of insect characters that will fascinate the entire family.

This fascinating documentary, which features at least 40 insects, was shot on location in the jungles of Borneo and in the United Kingdom where a microcosm of a tropical rainforest was replicated in studio for extreme close-ups. Audiences will view the amazing birth of hundreds of praying mantids, captured in minute detail for the first time in 3D Large Format, see a caterpillar hatch from a single tiny egg to metamorphose into a butterfly, plus watch as a praying mantis snaps up a fly for its dinner—another giant screen first.

A variety of other tropical insects which make their way across the gigantic screen, some, magnified 250,000 times their normal size, includes tarantulas, scorpions, vipers, and jungle nymphs as well as a million bats as they flit through the jungle in search of insects which they consume nightly by the ton. It truly is survival of the fittest!
