Like an older brother, IMAX theaters assert their dominance over standard theaters by being more vibrant, louder, and far too big for retaliation wedgies. Relinquish attention to a movie mammoth with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get one Smithsonian Theaters IMAX movie ticket (up to a $9 value). Click here for theater locations. This ticket is valid for the following theaters and movies:

Anchored by a trio of Smithsonian museums, IMAX theaters fuse stunning visual and aural clarity with educational subjects. Specially designed screens, which are among the largest in Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia, stand several stories high and collaborate with state-of-the-art sound systems, enthralling viewers with giant-size characters and enough resonance to scare lint back into bellybutton hideouts. Experience the sights from the cockpits of the Stearman wooden biplane, Harrier Jump Jet, and Lockheed Super Constellation while learning about a century of aviation history in Legends of Flight. Or spin inside the twisters of Tornado Alley as storm-chasing scientists attempt to capture the birth of a tornado without getting tangled in its umbilical cord. A choice of three theaters and a range of movie times help accommodate viewers’ busy schedules.

The Smithsonian Institution

When British scientist and visionary James Smithson left his estate to the United States, he hoped that it would one day become “an establishment for the increase and diffusion of knowledge.” Smithson got his wish, and then some. His generous gift transformed into The Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex.

Since its founding in 1846, The Smithsonian has blossomed into exactly what Smithson envisioned: a place where knowledge is celebrated, advanced, and shared with new generations. Anchored on the National Mall, the Institution’s many branches explore the worlds of art, science, history, and culture, inviting guests to discover their origins and see what the future might have in store.

Lots of fun

Go early to get a parking space on the mall. The simulators at the Air & Space Museum are worth the cost.
William S. · December 8, 2014
This groupon is great value. You do not need a separate groupon for each person. The groupon is good for 10 movies/rides and can be shared across multiple people.
