Out of Africa

We’re totally convinced that everything looks more impressive blasted across a 40-foot-tall IMAX screen. So what happens when images that would awe you on your 13” Crapavox – like the vast, lush stretches of marshland and islands that make up the Okavango Delta in Botswana – make their way to the most ginormous of screens? You’d probably implode right there in your chair, leaving only a small pile of highly impressed remnants. While this poses a problem for the dude that cleans the theater after each show, it’s definitely not a bad way to go out. If you’re still game, head down to IMAX (401 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale) for their latest mind-blowing showcase, African Adventure 3D: Safari in the Okavango. Botswana’s life-sustaining Delta is already large enough to be seen from space, so just imagine its expansive lagoons and majestic wildlife at IMAX size. Yes, implosion is imminent. Tickets cost $12.
