New 3D/4D theater at San Diego Air & Space Museum

The San Diego Air & Space Museum opened their new 3D/4D Zable Theater today, the first of its kind in Balboa Park. The 3D/4D Zable Theater is very advanced, employing interactive seats and unique special effects that are built into the theater itself. By creating a set of “4D” effects that are synchronized to the film production, the 3D/4D Zable Theater adds another layer of immersive fun for audiences. 4D theaters create a multi-sensory experience that is changing the way people watch movies.

The 3D/4D Zable Theater holds up to 36 guests per show, with multiple shows per day. The Zable Theater is a special exhibition and is included with regular admission. Funding for the Zable Theater was provided by the Walter J. Zable Foundation.

The current 3D/4D films showing include Fly Me to the Moon from nWave Pictures.

In addition to the 3D/4D Zable Theater, the Museum is opening a special play area for kids, the Kid Aviation Action Hangar (KAAH). The KAAH will have an abundance of attractions for kids of all ages.
