Science Center won’t reopen Imax theater


Axios Des Moines: The Science Center of Iowa will not reopen the Blank Imax Dome Theater after water caused severe damage to the theater and film projector in 2018, Curt Simmons, president of SCI, told Axios Wednesday. But that 6,000-square-foot space isn’t going to sit empty — SCI is undergoing a $20 million capital campaign to redevelop the space. Details are sparse at the moment, but expect a major renovation that could include adding multiple levels and “substantially increase” public programming space, Simmons says. Heavy rains in June 2018 flooded the Imax theater, which was the first of its kind in Des Moines when it opened in 2005.
