National Geographic Giant Screen Theater

The Ultimate Window to the World

Due to restricted spaces, some COSI experiences will remain closed for the foreseeable future, including the Giant Screen Theater. Please check back again soon for updates on the return of this COSI experience.

The National Geographic Giant Screen is your portal to explore science, culture, history and nature. Through the immersive experience of the giant screen, combined with 3D technology, Dolby surround sound and 4K projection providing the clearest, life-like images - you will be transported to the inside of a molecule, to the edge of space, to beautiful and distant lands.

Closed captioning is available in COSI’s National Geographic Giant Screen Theater for films whose producers have provided it. Please contact a theater usher for assistance with these devices and services. Please contact COSI to learn which current films contain this resource.

4K Digital Projection System

COSI has the most cutting edge technology in digital projection with the installation of 4K projection which creates a larger, sharper, brighter image. COSI can now show the highest frame rate in the industry - 60 frames per second - the next frontier for digital movie making. Come see it for yourself!
