If you’re at Navy Pier with desire to escape the August heat you’re in luck. The IMAX Theater has two new offerings that will satisfy everyone’s tastes.
For those wanting to see more cool planes after last week’s Air and Water Show, fly high with “Living in the Age of Airplanes,” a documentary by National Geographic. Narrated by famed actor and amateur pilot Harrison Ford, the film goes beyond showing how airplanes changed the world to an awe that reminds people of just how profound that change was.
For those looking for a more Hollywood-style movie, check out Guy Richie’s international spy thriller “The Man for U.N.C.L.E.” Set during the height of the Cold War, the film blows up the traditional American-Soviet antagonistic relationship as an American and Soviet spy team up against an international criminal organization bent on disrupting the balance of power.
Starring Henry Cavill of Superman fame opposite actor Armie Hammer, the “duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.”
