The Wortham Giant Screen Theatre returns starting September 4 with a new schedule and enhanced cleaning procedures. Between showings, we’re taking the time to sanitize the auditorium, so that you can ensure the seats are clean before your show. We’re also limiting our capacity, so you have ample room to social distance, and requiring masks for all guests.

Infographic that reads "Your well-being is our top priority, so we've created enhanced cleaning and social distancing policies with you in mind. Masks required for all. social distancing. enhancing cleaning procedures. reduced auditorium capacities."

We’ve been working hard to bring you a new and improved family giant screen movie viewing experience. Our recently renovated theatre features new rocker seats, cool new flooring and a high-dynamic-range (HDR) screen that wraps audiences in larger-than-life stories of wildlife, oceans, weather phenomenon and even faraway places. A new state-of-the art digital sound and lights complete the immersive effect.

Houston’s very first IMAX theatre offers state-of-the-art, 4K digital projection producing incredible 3D images nearly eight stories high. Images of unsurpassed size, clarity and impact, enhanced by a superb six-track sound system, are projected onto a giant 60’ x 80’ foot screen.

Since September 1989, more than 16 million students, families, seniors and museum members have enjoyed the Wortham Giant Screen Experience.
