Experience science in 4D at Houston’s first 4D theater, the McGovern 4D Theater. Enjoy a 3D feature in a fully digital, surround sound environment with special effects like rain, lightning, scents and more!
The theater opened in September 2008 and features 4D films developed by the Museum's staff, as well as special engagement presentations.
Graciously underwritten by the John P. McGovern Foundation.
Currently featured film: Planet You 3D
Imagine exploring an alien world where odd creatures roam bizarre terrain in search of food. Then witness the attack and counterattack of viral bacteria at a cellular level. Now imagine it all in 3D! It is an experience that will take you to a world you never knew existed before – a world that is so much closer than you think. It is a microscopic journey into the foreign landscape that is your own…SKIN!
This 3D film mixes live action and digital computer animation to tell the story of just a few of the thousands of tiny critters that live on the surface of human skin, like the microscopically scary Dermatophagoides, or house dust mite.
Planet You 3D is an original production and licensing venture of The Health Museum and The Museum of Science, Boston.
