COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Columbus’ National Infantry Museum is undergoing renovations on its movie theater, which the museum’s president says will soon offer the clearest high-definition viewing experience in the region.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (https://bit.ly/1Lxfekx ) reports that the museum has embarked on a $1.8 million project that will see the theater’s IMAX system replaced with a laser projection system that will include 3D screening capabilities. A stage is also being built for events.

The museum’s Director of Communications Cyndy Cerbin says that by replacing the theater’s film projector with a digital one, the museum will gain access to a larger variety of movies.

Cerbin says a significant portion of the money has come from an unnamed donor.

The 289-seat museum theater closed in late August, with Dec. 1 identified as the target date for opening.
