Journey to Mecca is an IMAX® dramatic and documentary feature that tells the amazing story of Ibn Battuta, the greatest explorer of the Old World, following his first pilgrimage between 1325 and 1326 from Tangier to Mecca.
His perilous journey resonates with adventure while presenting an unforgettable picture of Islamic civilization during the 14th century, culminating with Ibn Battuta's first Hajj. The story is book-ended by a close-up look at the contemporary Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca that draws three million Muslims from around the world.

The First IMAX® movie about Islamic Civilization coming to Baltimore this weekend only!

Journey to Mecca: In the Footsteps of Ibn Battuta tells the epic story of Ibn Battuta, one of the greatest explorers of Islamic civilization, who leaves Morocco in 1325 and takes a famed journey 3,000 miles east to perform Hajj in the sacred city of Mecca. This big screen IMAX experience follows Ibn Battuta’s journey, zeroing in on the Hajj - the first and only time an IMAX camera has been admitted into the Grand Mosque in Mecca to capture an aerial view of the Hajj from a helicopter hovering 200 feet above Mecca.

With very limited screenings in the US and around the world, Journey to Mecca is coming to Baltimore this weekend only! This big screen IMAX movie, running approximately 45 minutes, will be shown at the Maryland Science Center’s IMAX theatres on Saturday, March 7th and Sunday, March 8th at 3:20 pm both days.

Tickets can be purchased at the Science Center’s box office. To purchase tickets in advance, call 410-685-2370 or visit the Maryland Science Center’s website here:

The Maryland Science Center is located at 601 Light Street, Baltimore MD 21230. The main telephone number is 410-685-2370. Website: http://www.mdsci.org/

You don’t want to miss this! Spread the word and bring family and friends! The success of these screenings will largely determine whether or not the Science Center agrees to show the film in the future.
