Interstellar Returns To IMAX For One Day Only

Interstellar PosterIf you missed Interstellar back in November you have one last chance to see it on the BIG screen.

On Saturday, February 21st certain AMC IMAX theaters will be showing the film – and only once at 3:00pm local time. The screening will include 12 minutes of new behind the scenes footage.

Footage (and occasionally, physics) aside, this was a thought provoking and beautiful film with solid performances all around. Interstellar is well worth IMAX dollars.
