Experience all the action in 3D, free with admission!

What’s Showing?

Show times are every hour on the hour from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., 7 days a week.

The mission to protect the world’s oceans has become far more complex in recent years, and naval aviation has become increasingly vital to success. Find yourself aboard the USS Ronald Reagan alongside the 5,000 highly skilled sea and air personnel conducting flight operations in the midst of simulated war exercises.

About The Theater

The Joe Jessel 3D MEGA Theater takes audiences on amazing journeys, immersing you in three-story-tall screens and thundering digital sound. With stadium seating for 193 people, you’ll get as close as you can to the real thing, with sight, sound and an educational look in to the real action of aviation, flight and history.

Our newly installed system is the brightest cinema projector on the planet! This flagship laser projector provides twice the brightness of any xenon projector. The brightness levels create an unparalleled 3D experience –showing movies just the way they were imagined by the moviemaker.

Admission to the MEGA Theater is free with your paid admission to the Ship! Theater is wheelchair accessible and closed captioned with CaptiView for visitors with hearing impairment.
