Why Empirical

There's something magical about a movie house. The dimming light, the crowd's hush, the flicker of the screen.

What better way to take in a show than with a taste of food science? Food and beverage available during all show times.

Dual Christie 4K projectors and a Dolby Atmos audio system combine to crank your movie experience up to 11. (And make The Empirical the biggest sounding, most tech-forward theater in the state!)

It’s easy to get lost in the silver screen when it’s 4 stories tall and has the latest digital technology and 3D capability.

Join fellow science and film lovers when The Empirical takes the science from classic (and cult) movies and puts it in front of you with real experts.See All Reel Science Events
