The Future of IMAX
Help bring the most exciting new cinematic experience to Seattle!
Biggest screen. Best picture. Brightest Image. Boldest sound.
After 15 years and over 5.3 million visitors, we are renovating the Boeing IMAX Theater to bring you the latest technology and the best possible theater experience.
The first science center in the U.S. to feature this new technology, the Boeing IMAX Theater will showcase a new, custom-designed, laser-powered, digital projector enabling us to show movies with enhanced picture quality. Plus, the renovated theater will boast a new screen, new seats, and a powerful new sound system, with speakers surrounding you (even above you). Read the news release.
Watch the following video to learn more about the science behind this new IMAX technology.
Increasingly, feature IMAX movies are being produced in digital format and after November 2014 will no longer be available on film. Only with this new technology will we be able to continue to show newly released, feature IMAX movies on the biggest IMAX screen in the state.
The renovation will begin in spring 2015. As a privately funded non-profit, we need your help to realize this project. Help us continue to transport you on adventures to space, discover new worlds, climb mountain peaks, explore the depths of the sea, and much more with our immersive movies using the newest, next-generation technology where you will be a participant and not just a spectator.
