Moody Gardens Launches First Institutional Giant Screen 6P Laser Theater

The laser theater experience comes to this unique resort hotel in Galveston

Moody Gardens is known for a number of attractions spanning our 242-acre campus. To add to the lure, we’re about to launch the first-ever institutional giant screen 6P laser projection theater system.

In partnership with D3D Cinema, Christie Digital Systems, MDI and Infitec GmbH, Moody Gardens is proud to present this stunning new technology that will change the way you enjoy movies.

Laser Theater Technology

Thanks to advances in home theater systems, more people are beginning to enjoy the cinema experience at home rather than going to a movie theater. In response, the movie industry is looking for new ways to wow audiences. Laser projection is the latest development in the fast-growing world of cinema technology. Optimized for 3D films, laser projectors are meant to deliver a clearer, crisper picture that makes the movie experience more immersive and exciting.

The Laser Experience at Moody Gardens

Using a 6P laser illuminated 4K 3D dual projector provided by Christie Digital Systems, the Moody Gardens theater will show films on an 80-foot by 60-foot 1.4 gain premium white screen made by MDI. The equipment includes 4k laser projection heads and a 6P modular light farm with fiber-optic delivery to give filmgoers the ultimate cinema experience. 4k 3D high-bitrate IMBs and 90% efficient 6P glasses from Infitec add to the package. Together, the theater’s components deliver movies in a way that goes beyond the industry standards for “ultra-bright” screens. The result is unlike anything that can be found in a standard movie theater, even those with modern laser projectors.

The Future of Film?

This type of laser theater is new ground for the movies, but Moody Gardens is no stranger to testing out the latest technology. For years, the Galveston hotel has been working with D3D to present the latest in projection imagery. Though you’ll find laser projectors in other theaters, the 6P system at Moody is cutting edge. Even industry professionals are beginning to recognize the projector’s superiority for delivering an unforgettable movie experience.

To see this spectacular laser theater for yourself the next time you’re in the Galveston area, contact Moody Gardens for a reservation. Not only will you be able to experience movies with crystal-clear laser projection as you’ve never seen them before, but you’ll also have access to a wide array of other attractions found only at Moody Gardens. From the Aquarium Pyramid to the Moody Gardens Golf Course, there’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy.
