Bigger, Brighter and Bolder
The Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater in Chattanooga reopens in February following a $1.2 million upgrade that includes the latest IMAX with Laser projection system plus a new six-story screen. The viewing experience will be enhanced with a new 12-channel audio array that supports the new projectors. The new package is only one of 15 on the planet and takes a different approach to earlier digital projection systems noted for dim images, poor contrast and a lack of sharpness.

To showcase the benefits of the new technology, the theater will host the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater Film Festival Feb. 1-11.  During the event, planners will back eight movies that were among the top-rated titles ever shown at the IMAX Theater in Chattanooga. Each one has been specially re-mastered for the state-of-the-art IMAX with Laser format and new audio system.
