The AutoNation® IMAX 3D Theater, owned and operated by the Museum of Discovery and Science, opened in 1992. The 300-seat theater is a showcase of state-of-the-art motion picture technology.
In September 2014, the AutoNation® IMAX 3D Theater underwent an extensive renovation including a new giant screen (60 ft. x 80 ft.), new luxury seats, new powerful sound system and the addition of a digital projection system to complement our 15/70 film projector.
Our new dual IMAX projection system allows us to show both digital and 15/70 IMAX films and offer a more consistent flow of new Hollywood films in addition to our classic documentaries. The IMAX Experience® is an unparalleled fusion of sight and sound. Audiences will enjoy five-story high images of unsurpassed brilliance and clarity as they’re immersed in 32,000 watts of digital surround sound broadcast through 56 speakers.
And the special geometry of our theater makes you feel as though you're immersed in the action. You're just not seeing the movie --- you're part of it. Both 2D and 3D films are shown in the theater and 3D films are viewed using special IMAX® 3D glasses.
The AutoNation® IMAX 3D Theater is home to the BIGGEST screen in South Florida and is one of only three Certified Giant Screen® theaters in Florida as certified by the Giant Screen Cinema Association.
When you combine six-story-high images with a new powerful laser-aligned digital surround sound system, customized theater geometry, and new luxury seats, the AutoNation IMAX Theater offers audiences The Ultimate IMAX Experience.
