Movie Info

This is the second dramatic feature to be made in Imax 3-D. The plotline, of a Russian immigrant boy who has come to New York to search for his long missing relatives only provides a thin excuse to offer an unparalleled, spectacular show case of the Big Apple, past and present. The past images were created from an enormous assortment of old stereoscopic photographs that offer the audience a rare glimpse of the city's early history and the fascinating lives of those who lived there. The present images are presented from a wide variety of viewpoints as Thomas, the 11-year-old protagonist, rides the roller coasters of Coney Island, experiences his first subway ride, and imagines that he is a bird over Manhattan.

Critic Reviews for Across the Sea of Time

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Employing 3-D and PSE sound, then projected on a screen that suggests a small skyscraper, the new show at West Side Manhattan's Sony IMAX theater is, visually speaking, nothing but a clear day... but it definitely put me in scat-mode.

Presents a vivid and dramatic portrait of New York past and present. It will enchant and enthrall New Yorkers and tourists alike

Spirituality and Practice

For those willing to forgive the loose history and storytelling here, the rewards are 3-D views of Manhattan that blossom on the screen and occasionally stun.
