See The World Come to Life
Enjoy a special selection of breathtaking 3D films in the air-conditioned comfort of our theatre.
The mission to protect and defend the world's oceans has become far more complex and challenging in recent years, and naval aviation has become increasingly vital to success.
One of the greatest engineering feats in the history of warfare, the modern Nimitz-class carrier is a masterpiece of technology, and the flagship of the fleet.
With RIMPAC, the world’s largest and most comprehensive international maritime training exercise providing a stunning visual context for the story, find yourself aboard the USS Ronald Reagan alongside the 5,000 highly skilled sea and air personnel conducting flight operations in the midst of the simulated war exercises taking place there.

DOCUMENTARY: Watch the Trailer
Three years in the making, Great White Shark 3D takes viewers around the world on an incredible 3D journey:
swim the crystal clear waters of Mexico’s legendary Guadalupe Island
see newly-discovered shark territory around Stewart Island, off the southernmost tip of New Zealand
dive into the bone-chilling waters with South Africa’s 'flying' Great Whites
and finally cruise the California coast near heavily-populated Los Angeles.
The film examines what we've recently learned about these incredible animals, through the e
yes 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 DOCUMENTARY: Legendary Shark Cinematographer Valerie Taylor's stainless steel mesh suit - on the ground floor, just near the Members' Lounge.
