Rescue a hit with audiences
Since the film opened this summer, we have had anecdotal evidence from theater directors about audience appreciation of the film. We now have confirmation. A recently (August) concluded audience survey at Saint Louis Science Center and Tampa Bay MOSI gave RESCUE exceptionally high marks. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the highest, RESCUE got a mean score of 8.8, with 84% rating the film excellent (8, 9 or 10). Other highlights include 84% very likely or likely to recommend the film to a friend, and 76% rating it an “above average” IMAX documentary. The high marks were consistent across multiple demographics, including females, and parents with children aged 6-11.
