Our Colorado News reports:

This summer marks the 30th anniversary for the Phipps IMAX theater at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

“We opened the theater in 1983, and it was the only IMAX screen in Denver,” said Amanda Bennett, director of marketing at the museum (DMNS).

While there are now hundreds of IMAX screens in the country, she said that what sets Phipps apart is “we really focus and are dedicated to informal science education.”

About 300,000 people visit the theater annually, and Bennett said she thinks the popularity is due to the digital experience and the film topics.
