KeyBank Discovery Theater

Take your class on an adventure into science!

Imagination Station's KeyBank Discovery Theater will select exciting educational films to specifically address science content that is difficult to teach in the classroom. These giant-screen films place you right in the middle of the action, providing an active, engaging experience that sparks curiosity, encourages discussion and promotes higher-level thinking.

Other benefits for educators and students:

  • Comprehensive curriculum supported through teacher guides, website and other resources that help to reinforce the concepts and ideas in the film. This curriculum is aligned to educational standards. 
  • Special screenings of films just for educators
  • Easy scheduling with our Reservations Team to ensure you can enjoy a film and explore the science center 
  • Outreach workshops delivered in your classroom that help introduce (or reinforce) the learning that happens in the theater
