Dive Deep Into the Summer Olympics Opening Ceremonies

The 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris are soon upon us. Many Americans, and indeed many people all over the world cannot resist the fanfare, the national pride, and I think above all, the competition.

For the first time in history there’s a new way to catch the opening ceremonies, perhaps second only to attending in person. (Any 1996 Atlanta alumnus out there?)

The Tennessee Aquarium presents the Paris 2024 Olympics Opening Ceremonies at iMax, live on Friday, July 26th at 1:30pm.

From the Tennessee Aquarium – “The Opening Ceremony shines a worldwide spotlight on the athletes representing their home countries. This new approach will put viewers closer than ever to the action. More than 10,000 athletes aboard 94 boats will wind along the Seine, from east to west, through the city center. Each boat is equipped with cameras broadcasting live footage as the parade completes a 3.7-mile cruise concluding at the Trocadéro on the opposite side of the Seine from the Eiffel Tower.

Not everyone can make a trip to Paris for the opening ceremony. Thanks to technological advances, however, live-streamed events like the Opening Ceremony can be broadcast directly onto the theater’s six-story screen using a state-of-the-art IMAX with Laser audio/visual suite equipped with dual 4K laser projectors and thunderous, 12-channel audio. As the only theater in the region with this latest advance in IMAX projection, attendees will benefit from unparalleled visual clarity, brightness and color as they join a worldwide audience expected to reach 1.5 billion people.”

Tickets cost about twenty bucks and are available on the Tennessee Aquarium website.

Make a day of it and spend the whole day at the aquarium with the fam. Or better yet, since it’s a Friday spend the weekend exploring some of the great things to do in Chattanooga.

If you’re not planning to visit Chattanooga just yet, iMax has other locations available.
