Tornado Alley, which follows Sean Casey of Storm Chasers and his fleet of customized vehicles equipped with high-tech gear and a 70mm camera, promises to be an edge-of-the-seat thriller. And David Attenbourough's Flying Monsters is certain to scare the living daylights out of you as it explores the rise and fall of the pterosaur, a little-known prehistoric flying beast with a forty-foot wing span. You know what IMAX does to even the most minuscule things; now imagine that with an airliner-sized winged reptile, in 3-D. Whoa.
The IMAX 3-D Theater, located on the second floor of the museum, at 2001 Colorado Boulevard, is open daily; for tickets, $6 to $10 (museum packages are also available), go to www.dmns.org/imax or call 303-322-7009.
