Add a Film to your Field Trip

Hastings Museum’s digital projector, 65-foot wide screen and six channel surround sound will put you (and your students!) in the middle of the action – especially if you choose to view a 3D film! Scroll down for a list of the films in our Library.

The Hastings Museum Theatre is a great venue for school groups. Our films (in 2D or 3D) are an exciting way to discover new ideas and worlds, especially when RealD, Real D, 3Dpaired with other Museum programs to offer a complete educational package.

Teachers can view any large format film anytime for just $5.00 for 2D and 3D films. (Family members and guests are charged regular admission fees.) Please present your state education association card for the discounted rate.

Plus, when you bring your class back to see the same film, your ticket is free when you show your ticket stub. If available, you’ll also receive a teacher’s guide for the film on the day your class visits. Teacher guides also available here.
