Jerusalem...As Never Before Seen

I just came from seeing Jerusalem, the new IMAX film showing at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. Presented by National Geographic, you know it's going to be good. It's considerably more, by far.

Official Trailer - Jerusalem: Filmed for IMAX and Giant Screen Theaters from JerusalemTheMovie on Vimeo.

When I walked out of the theater, I immediately texted my best friend and said something to the effect of, "You MUST see this movie!" I went on to say that as much as I loved Space Station, which I saw at the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum, as well as many others, I think Jerusalem is the most stunning, awe-inspiring IMAX film I've ever seen. 

From the first image to the last, this film's beauty—cinematography, narration and content—is breathtaking. My attention never left the screen—not a common accomplishment given today's typical movie-going experience. I didn't want it to end.

I don't care much for spoilers, so I won't share bits of the abundance of what I learned from this film, but do enjoy the trailer above. You'll see a glimpse, and I mean only a glimpse, of the magnificent journey the film Jerusalem will take you on. 

The film is 45 minutes, so plan a couple or few more hours to explore the wonders of Fernbank Museum of Natural History.
