Our Revolutionary War Theater 4-D experience can be found within our Education Center. This fast-paced, 4-D production traces General Washington's important military victories at Boston, Trenton, and Yorktown.
Representing the course of the Revolutionary War, it combines concise narration, changing battle maps, and visual effects to create a "strategy and tactics" show that evokes a sense of actual conditions and events. When cannons fire, for example, seats vibrate and "smoke" wafts through the room. Fog drifts through the theater at three key moments to help dramatize how the Americans used inclement weather to their advantage in several battles. When Washington and his troops cross the Delaware River, "snow" falls from above the viewers and dissipates just before landing on them.
Further enhancing the impact are stadium-style seating and ultra-high-definition video, projected on a pair of large, angled screens-- on val, the other rectangular. The veteran IMAX film team at Dennis Earl Moore Productions in Brooklyn Heights, New York, created the multimedia presentation and designed the screen and theater configurations.
