Construction underway as Theater will be transformed to digital IMAX® with Laser

Construction has begun in the OMNIMAX® Theater as crews remove the film projection system and the theater seats. In place of the original film projection system will be a state-of-the-art system with next-generation laser technology designed specifically for domed theater environments-IMAX® with Laser.

The new theater seats will be wider with retractable armrests for a comfortable viewing experience.

See the construction so far in the images below.
