OMAHA, Neb. -- The Lozier Theater at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium will be upgrading its current projection system to a digital 3D projection system. The theater will be closed Jan. 15 and will re-open to the public on March 30. Upon completion of the renovation, the theater will be referred to as the Lozier Giant Screen Theater.
Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium has contracted D3D Cinema to lead its digital 3D projection system upgrade, which will include a new projection system, screen and sound system. A Christie xenon-illuminated 3-D 4K projection system will eliminate the need for film reels. The digital system will allow Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium to have easy access to a vast library of digital films. A premium QSC 5.1 surround sound audio system will also be used in the new theater.
In addition to the technological upgrades, the Lozier Giant Screen Theater will have new seats, flooring and lighting.
The Lozier IMAX® Theater at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium first opened to the public on March 29, 1997.
