Films come to life on a five-story giant screen complete with digital surround sound.
With partners D3D Cinema, Barco, and Dolby, the enhanced large-format Lockheed Martin DynaTheater now features the world's first 2D/3D digital 4K dual projection system. The system features two new projectors, new digital surround sound, and a new five story white screen. With optimum viewing throughout the renovated theater, there isn't a bad seat in the house!
A National Geographic Experience
Presented by Lockheed Martin
Today's robots are nothing short of astonishing. Those coming in the not-too-distant future are simply revolutionary—and they are becoming eerily like us.
What does it take to make a humanoid robot—a robot that can do anything we can do without the benefit of a human brain? How close are scientists to replicating some of the particularly challenging human characteristics? (Think fingers and toes.)
Why are we even attempting to create humanoids in the first place? ROBOTS 3D answers these questions and more as it showcases the latest developments—the successes and failures—of robotics around the world. ROBOTS 3D is a fascinating and fun look at what makes us human, how far machines can really go to look and act like us, and how humanoids are already changing our world.
ROBOTS 3D is a sneak peek into the future at what might be possible as scientists use innovative engineering and design to make cyber characters less "humanoid" and more just plain human. Robot "actor" RoboThespian will introduce you to CHIMP, ATLAS, PR-2, Herb the Butler, ICUB, and others as he takes you on an amazing tour of what's going on in robotics labs around the world.
ROBOTS 3D is presented by Lockheed Martin.

Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of ocean pioneer Jacques Cousteau, offers a breakthrough look at a secret world within the ocean that is perhaps the biggest story of all—that the smallest life in the sea is the mightiest force on which we all depend. Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean 3D is now showing in the Lockheed Martin DynaTheater.
Alongside marine biologist Holly Lohuis, Jean-Michel Cousteau invites viewers to dive into this whole new world that will leave them in awe of the beauty and diversity of the oceans – the source of all life on our planet – and inspire an even stronger desire to protect what they have either seen for the first time or perhaps re-discovered along the journey. Narrated by renowned oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean 3D introduces audiences to over 30 species, illuminating behaviors captured for the first time thanks to the development of new tools that allow underwater filming in 3D, ultra-HD 5K, slow motion, macro, and with motion control, and takes them to remarkable and vibrant environments such as the Bahamas, Fiji, and Bimini.
From BBC Earth and Its Popular Walking with Dinosaurs Franchise!
