Travel to the exotic and fascinating land of Arabia. Explore the ancient tombs of a lost city; dive through the reefs of the Red Sea; and experience the Hajj - the largest gathering of people on Earth. Discover an extraordinary culture and experience modern day Arabia in the midst of monumental change.
“Dazzling…Arabia delivers the quintessential IMAX trip.”
“A fascinating film – simple and sincere...[Arabia] challenges your deep and hidden misconceptions and lazy bias about Islam and Muslims... It offers more hope than other media portrayals for encounters between people of different cultures and faith.”
“The photography speak[s] for itself…The most impressive images come when the filmmakers join 3 million Muslims on the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, the world's largest gathering. Even when spread across the Omnitheater's nine-story-tall screen, the sheer mass of humanity is awe-inspiring.”
—Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Surprising new sides of Saudi Arabia emerge...well worth seeing...Arabia will expand your view of the Middle East’s largest nation and its 28 million citizens.
—Metro West Daily News (Boston)
“…IMAX spectacle paints the country's history in breathtaking strokes…glorious visuals…The picture is absolutely breathtaking in every scene…”
“Arabia is entertaining and informative...a joy to watch!...If you want to take a (family) trip without having to board a plane (or pay astronomical airfares), then this is definitely the perfect experience for a Sunday afternoon.”
“Arabia traces the fascinating history and modern-day life of this surprisingly beautiful Middle Eastern country…the film offers a surprising glimpse into the modern-day Arab mindset. Unlike popular Hollywood films that continually vilify Arabs as religious extremists or terrorists, Arabia takes a refreshingly positive look at contemporary Arabian people.”
