Why travel ~4,348 miles via plane when you can see the 2024 Paris Olympics on the big screen in Chattanooga?

That’s right, you can join 1.5 billion viewers worldwide + from the comfort of the Tennessee Aquarium’s IMAX Theater for a special live viewing of the opening ceremony on Friday, July 26, starting at 1:30 p.m.

Watch history in the making as the summer games host the ceremony outside of a stadium for the first time, opting for the Seine River. 10,500 athletes (representing 206 National Olympic Committees) will cross the river in a parade of 94 boats.

Speaking of history in the making, you’ll be able to support Chattanoogan Olivia Reeves, the first UTC student to qualify for the Olympics, making her debut as the top-seeded American for weightlifting.

As for Cleveland native Rhyne Howard, we’re crossing our fingers she can still compete on the USA 3x3 Women’s National Team after a recent injury.

Go for the gold + secure your tickets.
