LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES SOARS TO THE GIANT SCREEN IN THE CTI GIANT THEATER
Harrison Ford Narrates Breathtaking Film From National Geographic Studios
Memphis, Tennessee (August 25, 2015) – “LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES” opens Saturday, September 12, 2015 at the Pink Palace Museum. This immersive new 2D giant screen movie experience from National Geographic Studios, narrated by actor and pilot Harrison Ford, offers a fresh perspective on a modern-day miracle that many of us take for granted: flying. Using spectacular aerial and nature photography, LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES takes you around the globe on an epic journey to 95 locations in 18 countries spanning all seven continents to remind us how, in a single century, aviation has changed our world forever. Produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (“One Six Right”), LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES features an original score by Academy Award®-winning composer and pilot James Horner (“Avatar,” “Titanic”) and cinematography by Andrew Waruszewski. The movie highlights the astonishingly rapid advancements that have led to a world in which 100,000 flights take off and land every day. During the vast majority of mankind’s existence, walking was the fastest means of travel. Yet today, just 175 years after the introduction of the steam engine, boarding a jet to travel thousands of miles in a matter of hours is more often viewed as an inconvenience than a world-changing technological marvel. “Since we were all born into a world with airplanes, it’s hard to imagine that jet travel itself is only 60 years old, just a tick on the timeline of human history,” said producer/director Brian J. Terwilliger. “With this movie, we want to reignite people’s wonder for one of the most extraordinary aspects of the modern world.”
