The Henry Ford in Dearborn has upgraded its former IMAX theater with a new state-of-the-art 4K digital projection system, new sound, a larger screen, and new seats they say will provide the ultimate cinematic experience for theater goers. The theater will open April 4.
“This new digital platform with a state-of-the-art projection system provides our guests with the most stunning and lifelike cinematic experiences out there,” says Patricia Mooradian, president of The Henry Ford. “It also provides a more versatile venue where we can expand on the type of innovative programming and mission-fit films we can offer.”
Mooradian says the new dual Christie 4K digital projection with MasterImage 3-D technology allows one projector to be dedicated to the right eye and one projector to be dedicated to the left, which results in double the brightness on the screen. She says the system features the first museum-based ultra-high resolution 4K projection system in metro Detroit.
Mooradian says The Henry Ford Giant Screen Experience will be the venue for the Cinetopia International Film Festival in June and a Thursday Night Flix series. She says to kick off the Giant Screen Experience, The Henry Ford will be showing MacGillivray Freeman Films’ National Parks Adventure 3D, a film that takes audiences to legendary outdoor places across America and is narrated by Robert Redford.
Tickets for the Giant Screen Experience will be available for purchase starting March 25.
