NAME A SEAT FOR SCIENCE!

Help us reach our $300,000 goal to fund Fleet’s participation in the educational recovery of students in our community and complete a much-needed upgrade to our historic theater’s interior including new seats.

There are 200 seats available for naming and over their lifetime they will immerse you and hundreds of thousands of visitors and students in IMAX movies and documentaries and connect our community to science with lectures, performances and special events. The only thing missing is your name on your seat! Name a Seat for Science today to memorialize your family’s name or honor someone special.

Your gift at any level is greatly appreciated. All donors at the $25 level and above will be entered in a drawing to win a free private screening of an IMAX documentary for up to 200 people. See below for additional benefits.

Donate $2,500 to inscribe one theater seat with your name or tribute to:

  • Honor your love of STEM by including your name
  • Remember a loved one
  • Create a message from your family or group of friends
  • Recognize your favorite Fleet exhibit, education program, film, etc.
  • Commemorate a special day (wedding, anniversary, graduation, birthday)

Inscription details: Your seat inscription will be on a special plaque and can be up to 2 lines of 30 characters each (including spaces) in ALL CAPS and will remain in place for the life of the seat (approximately 10 to 15 years.) Seat selection will be done by the Fleet.The first 50 donors of $2,500 or more will have their inscription placed on a balcony seat. No other seat locations are guaranteed.

Example:

THE WARE FAMILY

DEE, BOBBY, SIENNA AND CASSIE

Please note: Though your name will be on the seat, we cannot guarantee you will be able to sit in your seat when you visit. The Fleet reserves the right to reject seat inscriptions with inappropriate language.
