Nick's Theater at UI Stead Family Children's Hospital
Did you know the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital has a theater with a 32-foot curved wall? Nick’s Theater in the Gerdin Family Lobby offers an interactive experience for patients, families, and visitors. Created by Dimensional Innovations (DI), the theater is accessible for people of all ages and abilities and includes two custom games. “Eagle’s Flight” allows participants to start in Iowa and then use their arms to control a bird flying across the United States, viewing Mount Rushmore and other landmarks along the way. “Story in the Stars” brings three original stories to life as constellations in the night sky. As users experience a story, they can interact with on-screen hot-spots to reveal animated elements filling each scene. The theater responds to subtle movements, giving our patients a sense of control – and the chance to just be a kid – during their hospital stay.
