The Charlotte Observer OMNIMAX theatre opened on November 3rd, 1991. Grand opening ad posted.
The Charlotte Observer reports today that this theater reopens Feb. 11 after an almost 2 year COVID related closure. A $1.2 million remodeling was carried out during that time that includes new seats, carpets, air filtration and a conversion from film to digital. It will be one of only 8 theaters in the country to use a laser lens technology for 180 degree domed theaters. It also includes a new name - The Accenture IMAX Domed Theatre - to reflect a 3 year partnership between Discovery Place Museum and Accenture.
The new digital projection will more easily allow a broader range of programming. The new Beatle’s concert film will open on Feb. 11 as well as a mix of documentaries and planetarium shows.
