The Gift of Learning
On Saturday, February 4, 2017, Fernbank Museum debuted its Giant Screen Theater, featuring state-of-the-art 4K digital projection with both 2D and 3D capabilities.
Through cutting-edge technology, Fernbank’s Giant Screen Theater will provide a truly immersive movie going experience—from floor to ceiling. In addition to the laser projection system, the theater was outfitted with new seats, floors, sound system, screen and the ability to show films in 2D and 3D formats.
These exciting upgrades were made possible by a generous gift from local entrepreneur and lifelong advocate of learning, travel and natural history, Dante Stephensen.
Stephensen’s commitment to inspiring youth for generations to come will be fulfilled by Fernbank’s incredible new state-of-the-art theaters.
