INDIANAPOLIS — The IMAX Theatre at White River State Park is expected to re-open in late-June.

The park made the announcement Monday, about three months after the big screen theater shut down over COVID-19 restrictions and concerns.

The park's Frank Lloyd Visitor Center will reopen this Thursday, June 11.

While the park's attractions have been closed, visitors have still been able to walk its trails and the canal.

“As we continue to observe safe-social distancing practices, we are eager to welcome our visitors back to The Park for a full experience”, says Carolene Mays-Medley, Executive Director of the White River State Park Development Commission. “The postponement of our beloved programming and activities, while necessary, have been difficult for everyone. Fortunately, there are tons of things to safely see and do here at WRSP and we are so thrilled to be able to offer some normalcy for our friends who have patiently waited for so long.”

As attractions reopen, safety remains the top priority. A full list of guidelines and protocols can be viewed by visiting [].

Each year, more than four million people visit the park.
