New Bedford Whaling Museum Launches Cinéfolio 3D Theater

The New Bedford Whaling Museum launched BIG BLUE PICTURES in Fall 2022, a new immersive 3D cinema experience at the museum, and the first and only 3D theater on the South Coast of Massachusetts.  D3D designed and installed the stunning new laser-illuminated cinema system, which will support and extend the museum’s mission to ignite learning and inspire their visitors, bringing fascinating subjects alive through compelling science and research adventure documentaries.

“D3D has been exceptional to work with throughout the entire process as they delivered a seamless install that is tailored to our unique, multi-use space. We are very excited to provide such an immersive experience for our guests,” said Amanda McMullen, President and CEO of the New Bedford Whaling Museum

“We’re very proud to welcome the New Bedford Whaling Museum into the D3D family, and to provide this storied institution with powerful new tools and resources to help build on their mission to ignite learning through explorations of art, history, science and culture,” said Derek Threinen, SVP of Distribution and Business Development at D3D Cinema.
