They'll be rotating through five films on their giant, 90-foot domed screen. The William L. McKnight-3M Omnitheater is one of four convertible dome theaters in the world, according to the science museum. 

Check out the films that are playing on the giant screen.

  • Jerusalem – This is the newest film in the cycle. Viewers can explore the city from their seats and learn all about its history.
  • Tropical Rainforest – The Science Museum of Minnesota's original production lets people dive into the rainforests of Australia, Costa Rica, French Guina and Malaysia.
  • Forces of Nature – Experience tornados, earthquakes and other natural disasters from the safety of a movie theater and learn all about what causes them.
  • Mysteries of the Great Lakes – Get up close and personal with caribou, bald eagles and other Minnesota wildlife. The film also explores some shipwrecks.
  • Humpback Whales – Dive into the ocean and learn all about the 50-ton mammals that almost went extinct.

The eight-week festival runs through March 3, WCCO reports. 

Tickets are $8 for adults and $7 for kids and seniors. Reservations are recommended and you can get your tickets here. The museum also recommends you arrive 30 minutes early.
