Flinn Theater, enabling it to feature outstanding films such as Deep Sea 3D, Grand Canyon Adventure 3D and The Polar Express. The all new Dorrance Planetarium includes a NanoSeam Dome and Digistar3 projection and sound capabilities, making Arizona Science Center the only one of its kind in the world with this technology.
