I remembered going to the Navy Pier IMAX to see Fantasia 2000 (2000) with my family to celebrate the new millennium, and Polar Express (December 2004) for a school field trip during my grade school days. I really want to go back there and see another good flick.

They just reopened this week and now they have IMAX Laser. Sadly, they probably no longer have the 15/70 equipment anymore.

The address for the AMC Navy Pier IMAX is 700 E. Grand Avenue, not 600.

Unfortunately, it appears that their reopening may have been a little premature. It seems that the renovations were not actually finished on time, so they’re now projecting that they will reopen in the fall, at best.

Hopefully they will have kept their 15/70 projectors, and will be open for “The Last Jedi” in December. It would be a shame if the only true IMAX screen in Chicago missed out, even if it’s not a 15/70 presentation.

Was these place once used by the navy, hence the name Navy Pier?

It was opened in 1916 as the Chicago Municipal Pier. It was named Navy Pier in 1927 in honor of WWI Navy veterans. During WWII, the Navy used it as a training center.
