Mysteries of The Unseen World Movie will transport audiences to places on this planet that they have never been before, to see things that are beyond their normal vision, yet literally right in front of their eyes. National Geographic created this movie to educate the communities about mysteries that are not seen in our daily life. Therefore, I attended the launching event of the IMAX movie at Kuwait Scientific Centre. It’s actually amazing, I learn’t some information and loved the animation. I really recommend you to watch it, specially alone without any kids disturbing.
