Giant Screen Theater

Great news! We’re renovating our giant screen theater. It will open this December with brand-new upgrades. The Phipps IMAX® Theater will be closed starting July 19, 2022, for these renovations.

The to-be-named giant screen theater will re-open in December. Features include: 

  • New lobby entrance finishings (think lush forest) and concessions area 

  • New audio and visual accessibility features, such as a multi-channel surround sound, hearing induction loop and updated closed captioning system. 

  • Enhanced programming: In addition to documentaries, we’ll show Hollywood classic movies, independent movies, livestream concerts and performances, other multimedia shows and have the freedom to use the theater for a variety of other events
