Boston, MA: Museum of Science Opens 4-D Theater

Posted on Thursday, July 31st, 2014 1:21 PM

The Museum of Science in Boston, Massachusetts is opening a new 4-D movie theater tomorrow, August 1, 2014, according to a press release issued by the museum.

The museum operates the Mugar Omni Theatre, which shows IMAX documentaries, such as Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk, and Journey to the South Pacific, and this new theater will entertain audiences in a different way, with "thrill-enhancing sensory special effects including wind, water misting, blowing snow, bubbles, scents, and even a tremor beneath the feet."

“We are always seeking new experiences to offer our visitors, and we are thrilled to present the new 4-D Theater,” said Jonathan Burke, vice president for visitor experience and operations. “In each film, viewers will be transported to new and exciting places, while also truly feeling like they are in the film through the innovative incorporation of each sense. When a whale breaches on screen, guests will feel the ocean spray. If it is snowing on screen, it will even be snowing in the theater.”

The first movies to be shown will be Planet Earth: Shallow Seas 4-D Experience, Happy Feet 4-D Experience!, Dora & Diego's 4-D Adventure.

The 4-D theater will seat 98 people at a time, and admission will be $6 for adults, $5.50 for seniors aged 60 and over, and $5 for children ages 3-11 with the purchase of Exhibit Halls tickets. We don't know if we'll be getting showtimes for the theater yet, so if you are interested in more information about the theater and the movies they are playing, visit the museum's official web site and Facebook page that we have linked on the Mugar Omni Theatre's Related Web Sites page.
