See The World Come to Life
Enjoy a special selection of breathtaking 3D films in the air-conditioned comfort of our theatre.
Watch the Trailer
The film examines what we've recently learned about these incredible animals, through the eyes of people whose lives have become inextricably linked to the Great White. Narrated by Bill Nighy.
At approximately 25 minutes, the film is the perfect length for an air-conditioned break after walking around the Maritime Museum.
Parental supervision for younger viewers advised.
MUST SEE AFTER THE FILM: Legendary Shark Cinematographer Valerie Taylor's stainless steel mesh suit - on the ground floor, just near the Members' Lounge.
During the run of our blockbuster exhibition Escape from Pompeii: The Untold Roman Rescue, you'll be able to see A Day in Pompeii prior to each screening of Great White Shark 3D. A Day in Pompeii is a 3D rendering of the final days of Pompeii, following the exact timetable of events, showing you what it was like living those final hours under the shadow of an erupting Mount Vesuvius.
