Solo: A Star Wars Story at Smithsonian’s IMAX Theatre (Chantilly)


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


Did you know the IMAX theater at The Udvar-Hazy Center, a Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, is the first museum in the world to feature a laser digital projection system?

The theater was upgraded to the dual 4k laser projection system with a 12 discrete channel sound system and provides audiences with the sharpest, brightest, clearest, and most vivid digital images ever, combined with a whole new level of immersive audio. The upgrade also includes 3D capabilities with state-of-the-art 3D glasses that optimize the laser experience.

Since admission is free to the Udvar-Hazy Center (parking is fee-based until 4 pm; free after 4 pm), this would make a great afternoon/evening out! Not only is there a lot to marvel over — it’s family-friendly with an onsite McDonald’s, stroller-friendly ramps, and convenient bathrooms.

The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, a Smithsonian museum, is a great place for not just aerial enthusiasts — but anything that has to do with air and space! Its two massive hangars display thousands of aviation and space artifacts. The Center also boasts an IMAX Theater and an observation tower, which gives you a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of Washington Dulles International Airport and the surrounding area.

The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center | Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum is located at 14390 Air and Space Museum Pkwy., Chantilly, VA 20151.
