DENVER — The former Phipps IMAX Theater at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science (DMNS) has reopened after a sixth-month closure for renovations.
Infinity Theater is the new name for the giant-screen theater that has undergone a "major facelift."
Renovations include a new lobby entrance with brand new finishings, new concessions area, a new laser projector, and new surround sound system.
DMNS said the new audio and visual accessibility features include a hearing induction loop, updated closed captioning system, and enhanced programming.
The theater also boasts more sustainable finishings and procedures such as eye glass washing equipment, LED lighting, and an energy efficient projection system.
The Denver museum contracted D3D Cinema to create the new giant-screen theater.
It's new laser projection system will be able to show both 2D and 3D films. DMNS said that in addition to documentaries, the museum will show classic Hollywood movies, independent films, concert livestreams and other multimedia shows.
The Phipps IMAX Theater first opened as the Phipps Auditorium in 1940. The theater was renovated as an IMAX theater in 1983.
