The Solomon Victory Theater, which houses the 4D cinematic experience Beyond All Boundaries, is also used for special film screenings.

Each year, the Museum hosts documentaries, feature films, and campy classics.  Documentaries often feature a Q&A with the filmmaker. Watch classic feature films and even world premieres in The Solomon Victory Theater, which houses the 4D cinematic experience, Beyond All Boundaries. Our most popular is the biennial interactive showing of The Sound of Music, where guests dress up, sing along, and boo Nazis. 

Past Event Highlights:
