The newly constructed building housing the DreamWorks Theatre is inspired by Mission revival architecture and pays homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood’s Art Deco period of the 1920s,. Details even include a box office ticket booth staffed by a three-dimensional usher asleep on the job. As guests navigate past the ticket booth, through the flourishing outdoor garden and into the theatre queue, you will encounter a series of 36 movie posters that pay homage to DreamWorks Animation films.

Within the lobby a display of over 20 award statuettes can be found representing a sampling of the Golden Globe, Emmy, People’s Choice, Critic’s Choice, National Board of Review and Annie awards DreamWorks Animation has assembled from 2008 to 2015. A collection of original sculpted maquettes of the “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest” characters will also be on display along with artifacts symbolizing the magical powers that Po brought back from the Spirit Realm. The storyline begins as guests enter the pre-show area of the theatre where they meet an array of DreamWorks characters who kick-off the attraction’s narrative. Finally guests will enter the main theatre, complete with new ultra-plush, fully articulated seats that pivot and swivel in tandem with the 180-degree action.

Developed by the innovative team at Universal Creative, this never-before-adapted technique will depict a series of immersive and visually dynamic scenic designs that will transform within the interior space and enhance the story. With detailing that is so precise, it will be near impossible to realize the projected imagery is a mere illusion. This paired with seven Christie 4K Boxer Cinema Projectors and 360 degree surround sound audio, will create sweeping physical effects from water to wind. Guests will feel more like participants than spectators in the adrenaline-spiked adventure.
