Albuquerque Balloon Museum unveils new 4-D theater


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – There’s a new attraction at the Albuquerque Balloon Museum. The Tim Anderson Theater will now screen short 2-D and 3-D videos.

A Larry Barker investigation earlier this year found the project goes all the way back to 2006.

Governor Richardson reached into a pot of public money and doled out a million dollars for a 4-D theater. But after buying all the equipment, officials realized it wouldn’t fit in the building.

Now in an effort to salvage the investment, they created a 3-D theater with some 4-D features.

“We could feel the seats vibrating, and could feel the wind in our face. It was interesting, the airplane flying, and the way it was maneuvering,” said Jerry Sumerlian, who visited the museum.

The theater will begin regular screenings at the end of the month.
