Charlotte, NC, USA — Audiences will be transported to the far reaches of the Universe to witness up-close some of the most challenging spacewalks ever performed when Hubble opens at Discovery Place’s The Charlotte Observer IMAX Dome Theatre January 10.

For nearly 20 years, the Hubble Space Telescope has provided dazzling, unprecedented views of the cosmos—from the splendor of Earth’s celestial neighborhood to galaxies billions of light years away. Audiences will blast off alongside the Atlantis STS-125 crew to experience firsthand Hubble’s awe-inspiring imagery, from the heart of the Orion Nebula and Milky Way to the edge of the observable universe. Recounting the amazing journey of the most important scientific instrument since Galileo’s original telescope,Hubble will immerse moviegoers in the great wonders and astounding beauty of the universe.

Narrated by award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio, the film offers an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy and highlights its profound impact on the way people view the universe and themselves.

Reuniting the Space Station film team, Hubble is led by producer/director Toni Myers, and James Neihouse, director of photography, who also doubles as the astronaut crew trainer. Judy Carroll is associate producer, and Graeme Ferguson, co-founder of IMAX and pioneer producer of many IMAX space films, is executive producer. Hubble is an IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures production, in cooperation with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Hubble runs at Discovery Place through May 30, 2014.
