IMAX Melbourne Museum is astounded by the amazing response we’ve had from Melbourne viewers for the release of Born to be Wild 3D, which opened on 8 April.

This gorgeous film about the amazing people who take care for orphaned baby orang-utans in Borneo and elephants in Kenya, has been so well received by a local audience that IMAX Melbourne has topped the global box office for April.

Born to be Wild: Global Top 3

  1. Melbourne
  2. Montreal OP
  3. Washington DC


We don’t know if it was the beautiful baby orang-utans, the sweet baby elephants or the amazing support we have received for this film from WWF-Australia, Zoos Victoria, the Herald Sun, The Circle, Peregrine Adventures, Mix 101.1 and World Expeditions... but IMAX Melbourne is delighted and humbled by this huge response!
