Visitors of The San Diego Air & Space Museum can now enjoy our new 3D/4D Zable Theater, the first of its kind in Balboa Park! Films currently showing are Jetpack Adventure, Fly Me to the Moon, Robots of Mars--free with paid admission!

The 3D/4D Zable Theater uses advanced 3D technologies but takes it to the next level of experience; employing interactive seats and unique special effects built into the theater itself. By creating a set of "4D" effects synchronized to the film production, the 3D/4D Zable Theater adds another layer of immersive and experiential fun for audiences of all ages. 4D theaters are a multi-sensory experience and are changing the way people enjoy movies.

The 3D/4D Zable Theater seats 36 guests per show, and they are played continuously each day. The Zable Theater is a special exhibition and included with regular admission. Funding for the Zable Theater was provided by the Walter J. Zable and Betty C. Zable Foundation, Cubic Corporation and the San Diego Air & Space Technology Center.
