The original IMAX Theatre at Spokane’s Riverfront Park opened for the World’s Fair- Expo 74 and was the third IMAX screen at the time.
A permanent 385-seat IMAX opened at Riverfront Park on June 3,1978 with a 53 x 69 foot screen. Trogdon, Smith and Grossman of Spokane were the designers of the $1,010,000 theatre financed by the city.
One of the notable films to play at the IMAX was a four-month run of Walt Disney’s “Fantasia 2000” beginning on January 1, 2000. “Fantasia” had 22,000 admissions in January and February of that year. In 2001 Disney returned in January with a five-month run of “Beauty and the Beast”.
In addition to the IMAX educational films, Hollywood films that have shown at the IMAX were “Harry Potter” and “Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones”.
In 2007 the original plastic seats from 1974 were upgraded and reduced to a more comfortable 342 for a showing of “Spiderman 3”. It was closed in 2015 and was demolished in February 2018.
