This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Journey to Mecca is a dramatic documentary feature for IMAX, filmed in Saudi Arabia and Morocco in English and in Arabic, which tells the amazing story of Ibn Battuta, one of the greatest travellers of all time. The film follows his first pilgrimage in 1325 from Tangier to Mecca. His perilous journey resonates with adventure while presenting an unforgettable picture of Islamic civilization during the 14th century. The film culminates with Ibn Battuta's first Hajj and dissolves into the most stunning modern day footage of the Hajj ever recorded in IMAX® with over 3 million pilgrims. Narrated by Oscar® award winning British actor, Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Schindler’s List), Journey to Mecca stars Chems Eddine Zinoun (The Objective) as Ibn Battuta and Hassam Ghancy (Traitor, Rendition) as the Highwayman.
