Celebrate the beauty of science on the biggest screen in town with five stunning movies Mar. 3–April 9, 2023

Omnifest, the beloved Science Museum movie tradition, is back! Watch five stunning movies on the Omnitheater’s giant screen from March 3 through April 9, 2023.

This film festival is like no other, featuring larger-than-life treks through unknown corners of Earth and playdates with nature’s cutest creatures.

During Omnifest, you’ll learn how scientists rescue endangered orangutans and elephants, explore 30 of the nation’s most spectacular landscapes, meet the world’s boldest four-legged heroes, witness the phenomena of camouflage among the backdrop of the Amazon rainforest, and so much more. Back-to-back showings every day mean you can choose one or two, or even see all five in one day!

Keep track of your adventures with this year's Omnifest Passport. Collect stamps for each movie and redeem it for a prize at our Explore Store! Download the passport below or pick up a copy at our Member desk.
