Jerusalem” Opens in IMAX 3D
Challenger Learning Center IMAX Theatre 200 South Duval Street, 32301
JERUSALEM takes audiences on an inspiring and eye-opening tour of one of the world’s oldest and most enigmatic cities. Destroyed and rebuilt countless times over 5000 years, Jerusalem’s enduring appeal remains a mystery. What made it so important to so many different cultures? How did it become the center of the world for three major religions? Why does it still matter to us?
JERUSALEM attempts to answer these questions by following three young Jerusalemites and their families Jewish, Christian and Muslim. Through their eyes, audiences will learn what it means to call Jerusalem home, and experience celebrations and events that mark the high points of a year in the life of the city.
JERUSALEM will also follow archaeologists, Dr. Jodi Magness and Dr. Nazmi al-Jubeh, as they explore some of the most extraordinary historical sites in the region in order to better understand this crossroads of civilization.Audiences will gain a completely unique perspective of a part of the world that captivates the imagination of billions of people.
JERUSALEM will be in the library of the Challenger Learning Center IMAX Theatre through November 2014.

Museum of Florida History, 500 South Bronough Street, Tallahassee, Florida
Start your voyage aboard a replica Spanish galleon and travel 500 years back in time to explore Florida’s early colonial history at the new temporary exhibit at the Museum of Florida History.
Imagining La Florida: Ponce de León and the Quest for the Fountain of Youth is an immersive exhibit that recounts Florida history from the preparation of Ponce de León’s voyage from Spain to the establishment of Fort Mose in 1739. Organized by Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) of Spain and the Spain-Florida Foundation and curated by Dr. J. Michael Francis, it is a collaboration of the Spanish Embassy in Washington D.C., and the Spanish Consulate in Miami. The exhibit is divided into four distinct sections, each chronicling a different aspect of Florida’s early colonial history. Begin your voyage aboard a replica Spanish galleon in Seville, Spain, and travel through the history of early Florida, taking in such sights as the founding of St. Augustine, the rich native populations, and the founding of Fort Mose, the first free black settlement in the United States. The exhibit concludes with a holographic fountain, where visitors discover the truth about one of the most enduring foundation myths in U.S. history, Ponce de León’s quest for the fountain of youth.
This temporary exhibit is on display from November 14, 2013 until February 23, 2014, at the Museum of Florida History. Admission and parking are free.
