Museum Theatre


The 400-seat Air Force Museum Theatre was unveiled to the public in May of 1991. This year the museum completed a total digital overhaul of the theatre's experience for viewers, but the new theatre isn't just a sight to behold--our new surround sound system will amaze you too! The Museum Theatre's new state-of-the-art D3D Cinema experience allows us to show a wide range of 3D films on a massive 80 foot by 60 foot screen that is the largest in all of southwest Ohio. We've also installed new carpet and seating, added a stage for presentations, and even included personalized closed captioning for the hearing impaired.

The new theatre experience allows the museum to showcase a wide range of documentaries that are not available in traditional film format, which provides the museum with a very dynamic means for explaining aviation history, as well as the history of the Air Force. The theatre also hosts special events such as guest speaker Kyle Maynard and our annual Reel Stuff Film Festival, featuring 11 different films, each one introduced by someone involved in the making of the film who entertains a Q&A session at the conclusion of the film. We will begin showing Journey To Space 3D starting in March. Be sure to check our Schedule/Showtimes, Upcoming Events and Featured Films pages for the latest film showings and event schedules.
