If you’re a fan of IMAX movies and you live in Portland, Oregon, here’s a pretty cool opportunity coming up. Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) will be having an IMAX film festival from May 8 through July 1. They’ll be screening 28 films, both old and new, with a total of 450 showings in all. You can get more info on their website, including showtimes and short descriptions of each film, or you can also download the festival schedule as a PDF.

Regular ticket prices will apply throughout the festival, but you can also get some passes if you want to see a bunch of the movies: $90 buys you a Director’s Pass, which allows you and a guest to see any movie and attend any of the special events tied to the festival. The $40 Producer’s Pass gets you and a guest into four movies and some of the special events, and the $22 Producer’s Pass Single is four movies for just one person.

With 28 films to choose from, there’s bound to be at least a few you’ll enjoy. I’m particularly interested in a few of the films about space: Hubble provides an up-close look at the Hubble Space Telescope, including the servicing mission in 2009. Magnificent Desolation covers the Apollo space missions on the surface of the moon, using previously unreleased NASA footage and photographs.
