January 24, 2018—D3D Cinema is proud to announce that Omaha’s
Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium has selected D3D to upgrade the
existing IMAX® 15/70 film-based Lozier Theater to a state-of-the-art
Christie Digital 4K 3D projection system, which will be installed in March
2018. Upon reopening, the theater will be called the Lozier Giant Screen

D3D has designed a Christie 4K 3D projection system, which
will be complemented by a powerful QSC 5.1 surround sound audio system, a new
MDI premium giant screen, along with full alternative content and accessibility
packages. In addition to the technological upgrades, the reimagining of the
Lozier Giant Screen Theater will include new seats, flooring and lighting.

“Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is one of the world’s truly
great zoos and took on a pioneering role in the giant-screen industry as one of
the first zoos to install a theater. We’re thrilled to bring this storied
institution into the D3D family, and to help them make this leap to next-generation
theater technology—making them the new gold standard for zoo cinemas,” said
Derek Threinen, Vice President of Distribution and Business Development for
D3D. “As Nebraska’s top paid-attendance attraction, this upgrade will provide
an even greater experience to the zoo’s visitors, immersing them in educational
and entertaining ‘you are there’ moments about the natural world and its inhabitants
like never before, with the most stunning and lifelike images ever seen on the
giant screen.”

In addition to inspiring new generations of zoo visitors through
access to a much larger selection of relevant and compelling film content, the
upgrade will provide impressive new capabilities for presentations, lectures,
and other events in the auditorium, as well as special technologies to enhance
accessibility for visitors with disabilities. 

“As Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium has continued to see
significant growth, the Lozier Giant Screen Theater remains a very popular
point of interest for Zoo visitors,” said Dennis Schnurbusch II, Chief
Operating Officer. This upgrade allows us to expand our ability to provide the
highest quality education and conservation programming to our visitors. We
couldn’t be happier to be working with giant-screen industry leaders like

“With this latest installation, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium
continues to blaze a trail for zoos everywhere searching for the most
compelling way to present the latest mission-relevant programming,” said Don
Kempf, founder and President of D3D Cinema. “And, importantly, the new system
will also allow the zoo to dramatically reduce theater operating costs, likely
by hundreds of thousands of dollars per year—providing a significant boost to
the institution’s bottom line, and their ability to expand the reach of their
mission with their visitors and into the surrounding community.”
