Night at the Museum: The IMAX Experience

bigImage Good-hearted dreamer Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), despite being perpetually down on his luck, thinks he's destined for something big. But even he could never have imaged how "big," when he accepts what appears to be a menial job as a graveyard-shift security guard at a museum of natural history.

During Larry's watch, something extraordinary happens: the museum's exhibits magically come to life. A fearsome T-Rex insists on a game of fetch (with one of his own skeleton bones); Mayans, Roman Gladiators, and cowboys emerge from their diorama to wage epic battles; and a wax figure of Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams) gives Larry important advice while harboring a crush for an Indian princess. As things spiral wildly out of control, Larry must find a way to control the magic to stop a nefarious plot and save the museum.

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM has been digitally remastered for IMAX Theaters using the IMAX DMR conversion, a process that take a 35mm film print and outputs it to true 70mm size and resolution. The film has a simultaneous release to IMAX® and conventional theaters on December 22, 2006.
