Winter is Coming to IMAX

Somewhere along the line, geek became chic. Maybe it was Orlando Bloom’s flowing flaxen tresses in Lord of the Rings. Maybe it was a generation that grew up reading Harry Potter and secretly hoping for a Hogwarts letter to arrive. Or perhaps it’s just that a show with this much blatant nudity was bound to be popular, but you know damned well you are counting the days until Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 12. You’re reading the books, you’re listening to the audiobooks in the car, and you’re marathoning seasons one through four just to get your fix. Now, you can get a taste of GoT on the big screen — the biggest screen around: the IMAX screen. This is the first television series to get the IMAX treatment, and, frankly, seeing the Night’s Watch defend Castle Black against the Wildlings needs to be seen this way. The “world’s most immersive cinematic experience” will be showing Game of the Throne: The IMAX Experience (which consists of the last two episodes of season four and an exclusive sneak-peek trailer for the upcoming season five) from Thursday through February 5. Showtimes are 10 p.m. Thursday, January 29; 1:50, 4:25, 7, and 9:35 p.m. Friday, January 30; 4:55, 7:30, and 10:05 p.m. Saturday, January 31; 3:40, 6:15, and 8:50 p.m. Sunday, February 1; and 1:50, 4:25, 7, and 9:35 p.m. Monday, February 2, through Thursday, February 5. Admission is $14. The Museum of Discovery and Science and AutoNation IMAX Theater are located at 401 SW Second St. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-713-0930, or visit mods.org/IMAX/showtimes.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
