Starting Friday, October 1 and running to Sunday, December 19, the Orlando Science Center will show Ultimate Wave: Tahiti on Fridays and Sundays at 4 p.m. and Sharks on Saturday at 4 p.m. for only $10. This ticket will allow guests access to only the film, exhibits and science demonstrations are not included, and will be available for purchase after 3:30 p.m. on those days.

Don’t have time to commit to a full day of exhibit exploration, then come just for a film! Directed by Stephen Low, one of the industry’s foremost filmmakers, The Ultimate Wave Tahiti follows world champion surfer Kelly Slater’s quest to find the perfect wave.  Taking viewers on a journey to the scenic beaches of Tahiti, the film simultaneously exemplifies the contrasting concepts of surfing as a competitive sport and an ancient Polynesian wave-riding art.

With The Ultimate Wave Tahiti, Low’s filmmaking uses leading science expertise and the hands-on surf expertise of Kelly Slater to interpret related ocean science and serve a broader, multi-generational audience. Together with science and education elements developed in consultation with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists and educators, this film is geared to making a big splash with adventure-seeking giant screen audiences. See this film on Fridays and Sundays at 4 p.m.

Presented by Jean-Michel Cousteau, SHARKS is a breathtaking new IMAX theatre film experience that offers audiences an astonishing up-close encounter with the Lions and Tigers of the Ocean. Come face-to-face with a multitude of shark species, including the Great White, Hammerhead, and Whale Shark. Witness sharks as they really are: not wicked man-eating creatures, but wild, fascinating and endangered animals that have been in existence since a million years before dinosaurs roamed the earth. See this film on Saturdays at 4 p.m.
