The Screen is Coming
A new six-story IMAX screen was delivered to the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX Theater after a multi-day trip from Canada on an 18-wheeler. Workers unloaded and uncrated the screen, which measures 89 feet wide and 66 feet tall when unrolled. The crew carried the 900 pound bundle into the lobby of the theater, looking like a giant centipede crossing the street at the corner of Chestnut Street and Aquarium Way.
