The Sudbury Star reports:

Science North has won the Giant Screen Cinema Association’s Best Theatre Launch Award for 2009.

“This prestigious, international marketing award celebrates the best execution of ideas in promoting giant screen films and theatres,” the science centre said in a release.

In February, as part of the science centre’s 25th anniversary, Science North opened a newly transformed theatre and introduced an experience for visitors: IMAX 3D, which the science centre calls “the most powerful and immersive 3D movie experience in the world.”

The $1.8-million theatre renewal project included the installation of technology required to show IMAX 3D films, a complete renovation of the projection booth, a remodelling of the CTV Atrium and the installation of an IMAX screen and seats.
