The IMAX film 'Volcanoes' tells the story of how Earth was formed and shows spectacular images, from an active volcano in Indonesia to the city of Pompeii.

The film 'Secrets of the Universe' introduces the public to particle physics with the Large Hadron Collider of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN). 'Walking with dinosaurs: prehistoric planet 3D’, featuring computer-animated dinosaurs against real backgrounds, takes viewers to the Alaska of the Cretaceous through the story of two young Pachyrhinosauri (large herbivorous dinosaurs).

In 'Journey to Space. Next stop: Mars' shows the challenges that NASA and the space industry must overcome to carry out future missions on Mars or to capture asteroids.

Safe place to visit

The capacity of the Hemisfèric is 76 seats so that social distance is maintained, and the seats are conveniently marked so that viewers will know which seats they can use. In the 3D screening sessions, audience members have at their disposal 3D glasses, properly disinfected and sealed in individual bags at the end of each session to guarantee their hygiene. In addition, the frequency of the cleaning of the auditorium between sessions has been increased, and includes the disinfection of the seats and handrails. 

Both the Hemisfèric and the Museu de les Ciències have received the 'Safe Tourism Certified' seal created by the Institute for Spanish Tourism Quality (ICTE), which certifies the popular education complex as a safe place to visit. 

Moreover, the special offer of tickets to the Museu de les Ciències for the single, low price of 4 euros remains in effect until 10 July. In this way, the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències wishes to continue promoting visits to the Museu, adapting the price due to the limitations imposed on the tactile use of modules as a result of health and hygiene measures.
