KeyBank Discovery Theater

In a world powered by dreams and fueled by science is a story of a new venue unlike any other that will entertain and delight audiences of all ages and for generations to come. From Imagination Station comes a new state-of-the-art theater in downtown Toledo. We bring you  drum roll, please – the all new KeyBank Discovery Theater.

Let the Show Begin!

Coming in 2020, our brand-new, expansive 58-foot-wide screen will help expand the minds of children and adults alike. The theater plans to feature 8 – 10 films annually, each promoted within the community. Visitors can attend just a theater event or combine it with Imagination Station admission.

Lights. Camera. Imagination!

KeyBank Discovery Theater redefines movie going as we know it with an experience like no other. An experience that is immersive and engages people of any age or interest. And films are available on a broad spectrum of topics not otherwise accessible for most viewers:

  • Science

  • Adventure
  • Learning
  • Art
  • Beauty
  • Wildlife
  • Exploration
  • Nature
  • Sports
  • Geography

  • And much more!

And because Imagination Station’s theater expansion will come with the ability to display video and audio in nearly any format, the opportunities for use of the theater will extend throughout the entire community.

Advancing Interests in STEM

Thanks to a gift from KeyBank, TPS 3rd graders will have more access to STEM education. This helps pique students’ interest into pursuing courses in science, technology, engineering and math because they want to, not because they have to. This gift will help provide students and their families with the following:

  • Free theater access during pre-planned school field trips and supplemental curriculum guides and activities
  • STEM- and reading-focused professional development for 3rd grade teachers
  • Science Festivals in TPS schools
  • Family Nights at the science center for families of 3rd graders
