Mystery of the Maya IMAX film in Boston

Now you can live with your children again this fabolous 1995 film in the giant screen again! if you are in Boston you cannot let go this experience!

Witness the splendor of the Mayan civilization through the discovery of their pyramids, palaces and temples.
Deep within the jungles of Mexico and Guatemala, and extending into the Yucatan Peninsula lie the fabled pyramids, temples and palaces of the Maya. While Europe still slumbered in the midst of the dark ages, these innovative people had charted the heavens, evolved the only true writing system native to the Americas and had made tremendous strides in the areas of mathematics and calendars. 

Without the advantage of metal tools, beasts of burden or even the wheel, they were able to construct vast cities with an amazing degree of architectural perfection and variety. 

Filmed on location at numerous sacred sites throughout Central America including the ruins at Palenque, Tikal, Tulum, Chichen Itza, Copan and Uxmal, Mystery of the Maya explores the culture, science and history of this people.

Told through a modern-day archaeologist and a young Maya descendant who explore ruins and legends to unlock the secrets of the past, Mystery of the Maya takes you on a breathtaking trip through Maya culture and history.

You'll feel as if you are actually there as you witness archaeologist Alberto Ruz's 1952 discovery of a secret burial tomb deep inside Palenque's Temple of the Inscriptions.
