CLEVELAND (December 16, 2016) – By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth! The Marvel cinematic universe’s latest blockbuster, “Doctor Strange,” is ready to open Thursday, December 29 in the Cleveland Clinic DOME Theater at Great Lakes Science Center!

Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Dr. Stephen Strange, a brilliant and gifted surgeon with an ego to match. When a horrible car accident renders him unable to keep his hands steady enough to return to the operating room, Strange embarks on a journey to find an alternative method to heal his body, and his pride. What he finds ultimately is a new calling, an opportunity to use his brilliance in the service of mankind as a master of the mystic arts, protecting the Earth from threats even The Avengers can’t fathom!

Opening night for “Doctor Strange” is 6 p.m. Thursday, December 29. The movie will show again at 6 p.m. on Friday, December 30, and Saturday, December 31 and continue on January 5, 6, 7, 12, 14, 19, 20 and 21.

The recent digital conversion and interior remodeling of the former OMNIMAX Theater means the theater can now show movies from any digital source, as opposed to films available only in 15/70 mm prints.

“Doctor Strange” will be shown digitally in 6k high resolution with 11,600 watts of digital sound in industry standard theater aspect ratio. Beer, wine and other concessions will be available. The Science Center’s new ticketing system now allows guests to choose their seats in advance. Tickets are $11 for adults ($9 for Science Center members), and $9 for youth ages 2-12 ($7 for youth members). Advance sale tickets are available online at, at the Science Center box office, or by calling 216-621-2400.

(Editor’s note: Fall/winter hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The Science Center is closed on Christmas Day, Mondays and during all Cleveland Browns home games.)
