Discovery Motion Theatre: Legend of Apollo


Based on the Apollo lunar landings of the late 1960s and early 1970s, this film's exceptional 3D computer animation will fly you to the moon, where you can experience the sights and sounds of an Apollo expedition.

Spread across two rooms, the Discovery Motion Theatre experience begins with a documentary style pre-show film. Following the documentary, collect your 3D glasses and enjoy the animated Legend of Apollo 3D film with physical special effects, which may include water, wind, flashing lights and moving seats.
