Star Trek Into Darkness 3D at IMAX
Opens 09 May 2013
In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.
As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
Several key sections of the film that feature big action set pieces have been captured with IMAX cameras, which has become an integral tool for visionary filmmakers to tell their amazing stories. Exclusively in IMAX, sequences shot with the extremely high-resolution cameras will expand to fill the entire screen and further immerse the audience in the vast dimension and adventure of this highly-anticipated follow-up.
The IMAX release of Star Trek Into Darkness will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

WAR HORSE THE THEATRICAL MAGIC HAS OPENED IN SYDNEY
War Horse | Sydney Lyric Theatre
War Horse tells the heart wrenching story of Joey, the beloved horse of a boy called Albert, who is sold to the cavalry at the outbreak of World War I and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
Since its world premiere in London in 2007, Ware Horse has won two Laurence Olivier Awards, five Tony Awards and four Outer Critics' Circle Awards amongst a host of others.
Ware Horse is a must-see production like no other and is a theatrical experience you will never forget! At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets, created by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to life on the stage.
Find out for yourself why the New York Times called this stage production "Theatrical magic!". War Horse is now playing at the Sydney Lyric Theatre (The Star), located nearby to Novotel Darling Harbour.
