CINCINNATI – 2015 is the summer of OMNIMAX® as visitors of all ages flock to the five-story domed screen to swim alongside 55-foot humpback whales and witness the largest Allied operation of World War II. The OMNIMAX® Theater enjoyed its highest one week attendance for June since at least 2001.
Due to the continued popularity, Humpback Whales has been extended to run through Labor Day, September 7. D-Day: Normandy 1944 has been on screen for only a month and will continue to play through September.
“We seem to have the perfect combination of films right now – something for everyone,” says Dave Duszynski, vice president of featured experiences at Cincinnati Museum Center. “Whales have always been a popular topic and a perfect match for the dome screen experience, and the D-Day story as told by Tom Brokaw is such a unique historical perspective.”
The sight of a mammoth 50-ton humpback whale filling the theater has been a hit with marine enthusiasts and anyone looking to travel the world alongside these acrobatic mammals. At the same time, history buffs and amateurs alike continue to be moved by the intricate planning and the resilience of those involved in D-Day as the strategy unfolds on the giant screen. Whether under the waves along the remote coasts of Alaska, Hawaii and the Tonga Islands or back in time to a place only the brave dare go, the OMNIMAX® Theater continues to take you where few will go during their summer vacation.
Humpback Whales and D-Day: Normandy 1944 are now showing in the Robert D. Lindner OMNIMAX® Theater at Cincinnati Museum Center. Order tickets online at www.cincymuseum.org/omnimax to reserve your seat.
