Digital 3D is Here!

Dynatheater – With partners D3D Cinema, Barco, and Dolby, the enhanced large-format Lockheed Martin DynaTheater now features the world’s first 2D/3D digital 4K dual projection system. The system features two new projectors, new digital surround sound, and a new five story white screen. With optimum viewing throughout the renovated theater, there isn’t a bad seat in the house!

The Planetarium at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science is an amazing theater that blends art, science, and fun! The largest and most technologically advanced planetarium in New Mexico, our 55′ Sky-Skan Definiti, full-dome theater features educational and entertaining multimedia presentations on astronomy and space science.  Whether it’s learning about the constellations in our night sky tonight or watching mind-bending fractal zooms, the Planetarium will be an experience that you and your family will not soon forget!
