Join an epic pilgrimage to Mecca with this glorious IMAX cinema extravaganza.
In 1325, a 21-year-old student set out alone from Tangiers and became one of the greatest human travellers the world has ever seen. His journey to Mecca was a pilgrimage that would span 30 years, endanger his life and bring him closer to God. His name was Ibn Battuta.
Seven hundred years later, filmmaker Bruce Neibauer brings Battuta's story to life in all its splendour for the glory of the IMAX screen, observing in stunning detail the contemporary Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca that draws three million Muslims from around the world. With swooping aerial shots of the largest camel train ever assembled and a majestic overhead view of thousands making pilgrimage across the desert, Journey to Mecca is a phenomenal feast for the eyes.
