Museum of Science Boston and MathWorks Invite Visitors To Enjoy Free Films

MathWorks and the Museum of Science invite visitors to experience the magic of New England’s only IMAX® Dome theater—for free! Free Film Fridays are back, and thanks to MathWorks, museumgoers will enjoy complimentary shows all day January 7, 14, 21, and 28.

With a shared passion for discovery and learning, the Museum of Science and MathWorks once again welcome the public to enjoy some of the world’s most awe-inspiring experiences via the Mugar Omni Theater’s five-story-high screen and heart-thumping surround sound system. Free Film Fridays will give visitors the opportunity to escape the New England cold and surround themselves with the spectacular scenery of the “inland seas” in Mysteries of the Great Lakes; soar over the Outback’s vast desert and scale the sacred red rock in Australia: Land Beyond Time; meet blue, orca, and sperm whales and follow humpbacks as they travel thousands of miles in Whales; and take a white-knuckle trip through the science, history, and future of roller coasters in Thrill Ride: The Science of Fun.

A Museum supporter since 1991, MathWorks is a generous sponsor of giant-screen films in the Mugar Omni Theater. Through its partnership with the Museum and sponsorship of programs like Free Film Fridays, MathWorks is helping to bring exciting educational experiences to all members of the community.

The Museum will show Adrenaline Rush: The Science of Risk, Australia: Land Beyond Time, Mysteries of the Great Lakes, Thrill Ride: The Science of Fun, and Whales during Free Film Fridays. Visitors can pick up free tickets at the Museum box office on the day of the show only, first come, first served. Limit two shows per guest. For more information, the public can call 617-723-2500, 617-589-0417 (TTY) or visit the Museum’s web site at
