Narrated by internationally acclaimed actor Liam Neeson, Everest is the story of the world’s tallest mountain and one of the greatest human adventures ever filmed for IMAX® and giant screen theatres.

A dramatic, true account of dizzying achievement, Everest follows the expedition of four climbers on their journey to the summit of Everest, just days after the infamous 1996 tragedy in which eight climbers lost their lives in a deadly storm.

Featuring the first-ever IMAX images brought back from the mountain’s summit, Everest is also the fascinating story of how this iconic mountain was formed, how high altitude challenges a climber’s mental and physical capabilities and how Sherpa culture and tradition permeates the Everest experience.
