The Airbus IMAX Theater is a part of the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, which opened on December 15th, 2003. In December 2nd, 2008, it was renamed to the Airbus IMAX Theater after a $6 million grant to the center it’s housed in from Airbus Americas, Inc. The theater shows films in 15/70 IMAX 2D and has six-channel digital sound. The screen is six stories tall, and frequently shows IMAX documentaries as well as IMAX DMR films.

The theater has no concessions expect for water, and does not show any trailers before the feature. These two trademarks of the Airbus may upset some partons, but overall supports a more healthy moviegoing experience. Admission for adults is $9 for a regular show and $15 for a feature film.

from an article regarding the conversion from 15/70 to digital projection on the IMAX screen:

“All three of Smithsonian’s IMAX theaters will close from January to March 2015 to convert from film to digital.”

from this online article:

from my understanding the conversion means that with the upgrade, this location will finally be able to showcase IMAX 3D features.
