Navy Pier IMAX - Upcoming Summer Movies

Summertime promises three things: warm weather, good sports and great movie releases! This summer in particular marks the arrival of some of the most anticipated movies of the year. Titles like Dark Shadows, Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises are sure to draw movie-goers from all over the Chicago-land area to their nearby theaters.

Enjoy this summer’s hits at Navy Pier IMAX!

But this summer, instead of heading to your typical movie theater, why not head to Navy Pier and enjoy these titles at the IMAX Theater? The IMAX experience at Navy Pier creates an experience like no other. The IMAX Theater provides viewers with sharp, clear images and a surround sound system that will make you think you’re part of the action. Plus, Navy Pier IMAX is open 365 days a year and features the hottest movies of the summer.

Dark Shadows

Mother’s Day weekend marked the arrival of the latest film by Director Tim Burton. Dark Shadows 3D is the story of an imprisoned vampire (played by audience favorite Johnny Depp) who has recently been set free and released back to his home town. But things aren’t like how he left it. Now, he must adapt to life with his dysfunctional long-lost family. If you liked movies like Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory then Dark Shadows is a movie for you!

Prometheus

Prometheus is another long-awaited movie release. This science-fiction film directed by Ridley Scott is a continuation of the highly-followed Alien series. Here, actors Noomi Rapace and Logan Marshall-Green portray a team of explorers attempting to discover the origins of life on Earth but this expedition takes them to a dark place and they find themselves trapped in a battle to not only save themselves, but save the future of mankind. This fast-paced sci-fi flick is sure to appeal to any horror and science fiction fan.

Dark Knight Rises

Perhaps the biggest title dropping this summer is the latest installation in the Batman saga: The Dark Knight Rises. Director Christopher Nolan brings back actor Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader to fight off the well-known villain Bane, whom we haven’t seen much of in this stream of movies. The story then introduces us to Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, an innocent office worker by day and the mysterious villain Catwoman by night. With names like these, this movie promises viewers an engaging, action-packed show and will leave any Batman fanatic wanting more.

Enjoy these titles, and many more, at Navy Pier on Chicago’s largest screen. Tickets to the 400 seat auditorium can be purchased online. Also, be sure to ‘like’ us on Facebook to get all the insider information and the latest movie and IMAX news.

    Love your theaters, especially the opportunity to pick specific seating for features. When will you offer the new Amazing Spiderman coming this Summer??

    Yesterday I submitted a request for the title of an IMAX Movie but unfortunately I gave an incorrect email address.
    The movie depicted the development of New York and we viewed it on October 04, 1997 which I realise may be too far back to be on record.
    We would appreciate any information you may be able to provided as we hope to purchase a non-IMAX copy.
    Regards Neil Ross.

      Hi Neil. The film you are referring to is called “Across the Sea of Time,” directed by Stephen Low and distributed by Sony Picture Classics. Unfortunately that title is no longer available at the Navy Pier IMAX, but good luck in your quest to find a copy!
