There is truly so much to do at the Pink Palace Family of Museums! Visit the Museum, the Sharpe Planetarium, Lichterman Nature Center, Coon Creek Science Center, Mallory-Neely House, Magevney House, or the CTI 3D Giant Theater! Fun for the whole family!

The Crew Training International (CTI) 3D Giant Theater is the only large format theater in the Mid-South. Opened in 1995 as an IMAX theatre, it was constructed beneath the front lawn of the Memphis Pink Palace Museum and is accessed through the lower level of the museum.

This theater was only one of three in the world with a movable screen which allowed the Crew Training International IMAX Theater to be used for movies as well as meetings, lectures and other large-scale presentations.

The Pink Palace Museum has converted its giant screen theatre to 3D digital, provided by D3D. The system features state-of-the-art Barco 4K single projector solution featuring RealD’s XLW 3D system and a premium QSC multichannel audio system, providing and unparalleled viewer experience along with substantially-increased functionality.
