SPONSORED CONTENT BY THE SAINT LOUIS SCIENCE CENTER

The Saint Louis Science Center is reopening the newly renovated OMNIMAX Theater on Friday, Nov. 29, after undergoing the largest renovation
since the theater opened in 1991. The
theater will open on Nov. 29 with the
feature-length film “Frozen 2,” along
with IMAX® documentary “Great Bear
Rainforest.” In addition, the IMAX
documentary “Volcanoes: The Fires of
Creation” will return to the theater.

The OMNIMAX has been closed since
the end of July when the construction
on the new improvements began.

THE THEATER WILL NOW
FEATURE:
• IMAX’s next-generation laser technology designed for 180-degree domed
theater environments – IMAX® with
Laser. The groundbreaking new laser
technology will further enhance The
IMAX Experience® for guests. IMAX
with Laser represents a quantum leap
forward in cinema technology – providing audiences with the sharpest, brightest, clearest and most vivid digital
images ever combined with powerful,
immersive audio. The new technology
will allow the Science Center to deliver
a wider array of the highest-quality digital content – including documentaries
and blockbuster films – and lead the industry with new kinds of cutting-edge
educational experiences.
• IMAX’s state-of-the-art sound technology, which delivers the ultimate in
power and precision. IMAX’s six-laseraligned loudspeakers distribute equal
volume throughout the theater to create an optimum listening environment
that ensures every seat is the best seat
in the house. Whether it’s hearing a pin
drop or feeling the heart-palpitating
force of a volcano erupting, audiences
will experience complete audio immersion.
• New NanoSeam™ screen, making every inch of the dome surface completely
uniform and seam-free.
• The ability to livestream and simulcast content, increasing the variety of
presentation events.
• Wider seats with retractable arm rests,
creating a more comfortable experience
for guests.

THE THEATER WILL ADD A WIDER
VARIETY OF ACCESSIBILITY
OPTIONS, INCLUDING:
• More accessible seating space for visitors in wheelchairs and their guests.
(Guests who are in wheelchairs, use walkers or have difficulty with stairs should
enter via the 3rd floor.)
• New personalized, adjustable captioning devices allow guests to see captions
for their film using a device with adjustable privacy visors and mounts.
• New hearing assistance devices with optional Descriptive Video Services (DVS).
This allows visitors with visual and hearing impairments to hear audio more clearly or hear descriptive narration of the film
alongside film audio through headphones.
• Telecoil for those with compatible hearing aids and implants – no additional
hardware is needed because visitors can
set their devices to a t-coil or magnet setting and have theater audio directly transmitted into their device. Compatible
with at least 70 precent of hearing aids
currently in use.
Tickets for OMNIMAX documentaries
and films are now available at slsc.org.
