The John W. Woods IMAX® Dome Theater is an experience like no other! Our 280 seats sit under a 5 story, 79ft. diameter tilted, domed screen. The IMAX® Dome image fills your entire field of vision and the audio surrounds you to create a truly immersive sight and sound film experience.
The IMAX® Dome is a large format, 70mm film projection system that uses legendary IMAX® technology to create amazing images of unsurpassed resolution and impact. Combined with 15,000 watts and six channels of digital surround sound, it is the ultimate movie experience. IMAX® film has the largest film frame in motion picture history – ten times the size of a standard 35mm frame! In just 40 minutes, the projector carries more than 10,000 feet of film at 24 frames per second. Thanks to a glass-enclosed projection room, you can watch as the Projectionist loads the projector and elevates it into position for starting and viewing the show.
"A comfortable environment (indoor- no rain, heat/cold to contend with) that my kids really enjoy and I can approve of as a educational and enriching experience."
"It's a fun and educational way to spend a day with your children or grandchildren. I love having so much to see and do in one place. It was a great experience!"
"It is an outing I can feel good about for several reasons. My children are encouraged to interact, ask questions, get answers and be creative. We're out of the elements (summer and winter) in a safe environment. The family membership value is unbeatable!"
