Opening June 29, 2024

Cities of the Future invites you to step into the future and discover the exciting innovations engineers are working on right now to help meet the challenges of a changing world. Renewable energy will be our primary power source, solar energy beamed down from space will power entire cities, smart buildings and greener infrastructure will keep us cool, and we will travel on aerial highways in individualized pods that run on little or no energy. We will also ride in electric flying vehicles! Traffic jams will be a thing of the past. This isn’t science fiction. This is the world engineers are designing right now.  Travel to some of the world’s greatest cities—from Amsterdam to Los Angeles to Singapore and more—where profound change is already happening and meet the engineers and visionaries whose human ingenuity is forging a brighter, more sustainable future for us all.

Narrated by critically acclaimed actor John Krasinski, Cities of the Future is produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films in partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers, the same award-winning team that created the blockbuster film Dream Big: Engineering Our World.

One documentary film is included with a Fleet Experience admission ticket. You may purchase a Fleet Experience admission ticket on-line and scan at the Fleet Science Center’s entrance on your date of choice. 

All documentary films are available on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations are required. Individual tickets for Cities of the Future showtimes are not available.  Doors to the theater open approximately 10 minutes prior to showtimes.
