Phipps IMAX Theater

As a result of the new COVID-19 restriction levels, the Museum is closing our IMAX and Planetarium theaters effective Saturday, Nov. 21 until further notice.  


Phipps IMAX® Theater takes you from the comfort of their seats right into the middle of the action as they explore the newest frontiers in science and some of nature’s wildest places on a 3-story high screen.

We are asking guests to take the following steps to help protect themselves and ensure the best possible experience for everyone during visits to the Phipps IMAX® Theater: 

  • Enter queue no more than 10 minutes before your ticket time.
  • Please practice physical distancing for everyone's safety while in the theater by adhering to the seating guidelines.
  • By order of the City and County of Denver, all guests ages 3+ must wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth at all times. If you have a medical exemption, please let us know upon entry.
  • No food or drinks are allowed in Phipps IMAX® Theater.
