Fermilab’s Visual Media Services group has updated the movie theater located in the northeast corner of the 15th floor of Wilson Hall. A newly installed push-button box allows employees and people giving tours to select one of seven videos. Closed captioning is available. The videos are 2 to 40 minutes long.

To make the theater more inviting, VMS had the old blinds removed.

“With today’s high-definition screens, sunlight is less of an issue,” said Jim Shultz, senior media specialist in the VMS group. “Now tour groups can even use the theater to look at the construction of the Illinois Accelerator Research Center.”

The updated theater complements the new poster exhibits that were installed on the north and south crossovers in the last 12 months. Plans for further updates are in the works. If you have questions or suggestions, please send VMS an e-mail.
