The Holy Truth

If you're prone to wanderlust, look no further than the Phipps IMAX Theater at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, where Jerusalem made its Denver debut over the weekend. Filmed especially for the giant screen by National Geographic, Jerusalem immerses audiences in the lush, varied cultures and landscapes of one of the world’s most beloved cities with stunning (and rare) footage.

Through the lives of three storytellers who call Jerusalem home, viewers will explore the Jewish, Christian and Muslim quarters of the city and discover how a tiny piece of land became sacred to these three major religions. They’ll also learn from the archaeologists who discuss many mysteries in the film.

“We had a lot of interest in this film,” says DMNS spokeswoman Amanda Bennett. “There was a lot of demand for Jerusalem, and we’re excited to bring it to our theater in response to that. The truly compelling storytelling and cinematography make it a must-see.” Catch Jerusalem, as well as Journey to the South Pacific — also new to the theater — at the Phipps IMAX Theater, 2001 Colorado Boulevard, during an open-ended run; for tickets, $7 for members and $10 for non-members, visit
