Reviews

“Dazzling…Arabia delivers the quintessential IMAX trip.”
—Boston Globe

“A fascinating film – simple and sincere...[Arabia] challenges your deep and hidden misconceptions and lazy bias about Islam and Muslims... It offers more hope than other media portrayals for encounters between people of different cultures and faith.”
—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“The photography speak[s] for itself…The most impressive images come when the filmmakers join 3 million Muslims on the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, the world's largest gathering. Even when spread across the Omnitheater's nine-story-tall screen, the sheer mass of humanity is awe-inspiring.” 
—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Surprising new sides of Saudi Arabia emerge...well worth seeing...Arabia will expand your view of the Middle East’s largest nation and its 28 million citizens.
—Metro West Daily News (Boston)

“…IMAX spectacle paints the country's history in breathtaking strokes…glorious visuals…The picture is absolutely breathtaking in every scene…”
—Concord Monitor

“Arabia is entertaining and informative...a joy to watch!...If you want to take a (family) trip without having to board a plane (or pay astronomical airfares), then this is definitely the perfect experience for a Sunday afternoon.” 
—BostonHerald.com

“Arabia traces the fascinating history and modern-day life of this surprisingly beautiful Middle Eastern country…the film offers a surprising glimpse into the modern-day Arab mindset. Unlike popular Hollywood films that continually vilify Arabs as religious extremists or terrorists, Arabia takes a refreshingly positive look at contemporary Arabian people.”

Arabia Kingdom BookInside The Kingdom:
Kings, Clerics, Modernists, Terrorists,
and the Struggle for Saudi Arabia

By Robert Lacey

What has happened in Saudi Arabia in the last thirty years has had a tremendous impact on the lives of Americans—everything from the involvement of Saudis in 9/11 to the fluctuations in oil prices that keep us on our toes at the pump.  There have been many books on 9/11 and the Saudi radicals, but Robert Lacey’s newest book, Inside The Kingdom: Kings, Clerics, Modernists, Terrorists, and the Struggle for Saudi Arabia, is the first to go deep inside Saudi culture to show how the convulsions within have had effects beyond their borders.  Written in a journalistic style, the book gives readers an essential understanding of this complex nation.  For more information visit, www.insidethekingdom.net
