IMAX at the Smithsonian

The Smithsonian's 3 IMAX® theaters have the largest screens in the Washington, DC region and measure up to 6 stories tall! Our giant-screen films offer an immersive experience that complements the museum exhibits.

The Planetarium's 77-foot digital dome theater is the only full-dome cinema in DC. Audiences can journey through time and space to view some of the most extraordinary images not viewable to the naked eye.

Please note that the Johnson IMAX Theater will be closing on October 1, 2017.
