Journey to Mecca: In the Footsteps of Ibn Battuta

0 Love It
Save it
A pilgrimage to Mecca may be a bit out of your grasp, but you can come close with the IMAX screening of Journey to Mecca, a film that explores the adventures of a devoted young man named Ibn Battuta, who trekked from Morocco to Mecca in 1325 to pay homage. Cornell historian Eric Tagliacozzo will introduce this fascinating look into one of the most sacred spots on Earth, but even if that's not your thing it's worth seeing just for the Saharan scenery—plus, score free snacks at a pre-screening bazaar, complete with live music.
