The “Be Washington” theater combines an 18th century-looking space with the latest in display and interactive technology. The room design, inspired by Congress Hall in Philadelphia, contains 18 two-person interactive touchscreen kiosks. Theatrical windows on the left and right of the theater change in color to suit the topic and mood of the scenario while a large 6K resolution LED wall at the front of the room features live-action historical vignettes.
