Tornado Alley extended and Hubble returns July 8

CINCINNATI- Tornado Alley has taken fans by storm. The popular film helped bring the OMNIMAX Theater its highest attended week in 10 years!
Additionally, Cincinnati Museum Center is the second-highest performing theater for Tornado Alley attendance over the first quarter in the world. So, in order to accommodate all visitors hoping to take a seat for this thrilling ride, Tornado Alley has been extended and will now play through October 13.
Current show times for Tornado Alley are: Monday through Wednesday- 11 a.m., 1, 2, 3 and 5 p.m., Thursday- 11 a.m. 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7 p.m., Friday- 11 a.m., 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 9 p.m., Saturday- 11 a.m., 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 p.m., and Sunday- 11 a.m., 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 p.m.
In addition to the Tornado Alley extension, our most recent film, Hubble, will return to the screen by popular demand. In honor of the final space shuttle launch on July 8, we’re bringing Hubble back! What better way to celebrate the final mission than to see a thundering launch on our five-story, dome screen? You can see Hubble and catch a glimpse into our universe like never before at 2 p.m. everyday and also at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Also showing is Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs, playing daily at noon and 4 p.m. It’s the perfect way to complement your visit to our current special exhibit, Cleopatra: Search for the Last Queen of Egypt. And if you haven’t seen Cleopatra yet, hurry in, the queen leaves Cincinnati on September 5.
