The New England Aquarium’s Simons Theatre
The newly renovated Simons Theatre at the New England Aquarium features an 80-foot-wide and 43-foot-high screen—one of the largest in New England—and wrap-around digital surround for a truly immersive theater-going experience. In keeping with the Aquarium’s mission to protect the blue planet, it also features an energy-efficient, advanced digital 3D projector system and carpet made from recycled fishing nets.
The Simons Theatre highlights entertaining and educational films while decreasing the Aquarium’s carbon footprint by using an energy-efficient digital 3D projector system. Lights, camera, action!
By eliminating the need for these components, this advanced laser projector system reduces electricity usage by almost 40%. The energy-efficient digital 3D projector allows for a wider selection of films to be shown, giving audiences multiple opportunities to transport themselves to locations across the globe. Going digital also eliminates the use of film, which reduces waste and the resources needed to produce and ship the product.
