D3D Cinema has announced that it will be installing a state-of-the-art digital 3D theater at Brookfield Zoo in 2018. Located in the Chicago area, Brookfield Zoo, run by the Chicago Zoological Society, is one of the premier zoo institutions in the world, with attendance exceeding 2.2 million visitors each year.
“Brookfield Zoo has throughout its history always prided itself on being on the cutting edge, whether it be through our devotion to animal care and conservation of the natural world or by providing our visitors with inspirational experiences that prompt awareness and action,” said Rich Gamble, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of Operations at Brookfield Zoo. “D3D has an extensive catalog of enriching and entertaining mission-driven films, and we are thrilled to be offering them to our millions of visitors and members in such an immersive 3D theatrical setting.”
“It is a true honor to be partnering with such a venerable institution as Brookfield Zoo,” said Don Kempf, President and Founder of D3D Cinema. “Over the past several years, there has been an explosion in high-end natural history content filmed in 3D for institution-based digital theaters, so the timing on this is perfect for Brookfield. Having worked extensively with zoos and aquariums, both on the theater installation side as well as on the film programming and production side, we are confident that Brookfield’s digital 3D theater is going to be an enormous success.”
