MAY 3, 2017

The IMAX Theater in the Indiana State Museum will continue the improvements to the theater with brand new seats. The installation will take place from June 19 to 21.The new leather seats will allow for more personal space, going from 21” to 25” wide. They will slightly recline by rocking back to help the viewer take in the entire screen. The theater will be closed to the public during the three-day installation.

“We have been focusing on updates to the Theater for the last few years now,” said Craig Mince, downtown IMAX Theater Manager. “We are continually going to make changes that moviegoers want, and we’ll continue to strive to be that premium movie destination for Hollywood’s biggest hits.” Other recent improvements in the last year to the downtown IMAX experience include a new IMAX screen, a state-of-the-art digital projector and a completely renovated concession stand.

In addition to offering exciting and educational cinematic options, the downtown IMAX validates parking in the White River State Park parking garage for moviegoers. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit
