Wired to Win
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
24 Apr 2008
Wired to Win, an extraordinary new film in IMAX®, showcases the amazing ability of the human brain to overcome adversity, accomplish the near-impossible, and power each of us to victory and success in life.

The brain’s abilities are illustrated through cyclists racing in the Tour De France. Over the course of the event, they are caught up in hair-raising crashes, dramatic battles over the Alps and Pyrenees and action-packed descents down steep mountain roads. Their ultimate goal? The finish line on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

The film raises the questions "how do they do this?" and "why do they do this?" Ultimately the answers lie within the mind and the human brain itself.


$8 adults; $6 children 3-12 and seniors 62+

$7/$5 for members

A Zany hysterical tour de force!

Two would-be producers have a dream – to tell the story of the world, from Adam and Eve through today, via a full-scale Broadway musical. This dream comes complete with 1,400 wigs, 6,428 costumes and a cast of 318 with a budget of $83 million dollars. The production promises to render history in the most politically of incorrect ways. You’ll watch them perform their 13-hour-long musical in a breathless 80 minutes, in an attempt to encourage an audience of investors to back their tremendous vision. Starring Pittsburgh’s own Tim Hartman and Marcus Stevens. Adult Content
