The new Star Wars film hits U.S. big screens Dec. 18 and will play on an even bigger screen at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s Omni Theater, according to a news release.

Director J.J. Abrams shot portions of Star Wars: The Force Awakens using IMAX cameras, which expand the image up to a 1.43:1 aspect ratio. This allows 40 percent more of the image to appear on the theater’s dome screen, compared to a standard movie theater screen.

Filmgoers will also be able to hear the film on 50 speakers running on 24,000 watts of power.

The film will not play in 3D at the Omni Theater, but Omni Theater Manager Jonathan Orr said moviegoers should still experience the feeling of being inside the movie.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has a U.S. release date of Dec. 18, but the museum will be showing the film a day early. The film will run at the Omni Theater from Dec. 17 to Jan. 18. Tickets are $14, available on the museum’s website or by phone, 817-255-9540.
