Why The Walk Is Meant To Be Seen Under The Arches

by | Oct 1, 2015

The Walk

The Walk, now showing at Pacific Science Center, features a star-studded lineup including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale and the iconic, World Trade Center Towers. So, what does a movie about the first, and only, person to walk across the void of the two towers have in common with Pacific Science Center? The architecture.

In 1962, Pacific Science Center’s concrete buildings and soaring, gothic arches rose for the Seattle’s World’s Fair–complete with hundreds of archways, the signature design of Seattle-born architect, Minoru Yamasaki. Pointed arches and narrow, vertical windows were incorporated into Yamasaki’s future designs, including the 1,360-foot, 110-story, World Trade Center in 1966. You’ll experience breathtaking views of  Yamasaki’s gothic arches adorning the Towers thanks to sweeping shots and crystal-clear images produced by our IMAX with Laser 4k projection system.

Pay tribute to the former Towers, and see The Walk under Yamasaki’s arches inside the Boeing IMAX Theater.
