Opens Aug., 17–19
Immerse yourself within the pulsing energy of a stadium concert performed by one of the most popular musical acts. U2 3D takes viewers to South America during the final leg of the band’s “Vertigo” tour, creating an engaging theatrical experience unlike any 3D or concert film that has come before.
U2 3D is directed by Catherine Owens, U2’s visual content director for more than 15 years, and Mark Pellington, who directed U2’s “One” music video. The film showcases performances at huge outdoor stadium shows at cities in four countries including Mexico City, Mexico; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Santiago, Chile; and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
All told, over 100 hours of digital 3D footage was shot, documenting a set list that includes such seminal U2 songs as “Pride (In the Name of Love),” “New Year’s Day,” “Sunday Bloody Sunday,” “Miss Sarajevo,” “Where the Streets Have No Name,” “With or Without You,” “Bullet the Blue Sky” and “One,” as well as more recent tracks such as “Beautiful Day,” “Love and Peace or Else,” “Vertigo,” “Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own” and “Yahweh.”

By virtue of the technology, colorful and comfortable architecture, and atmosphere of the new cinema, The Rangos is designed to be a destination that provides immersive and exciting experiences to our guests. After your stay, we want you to feel like you have visited the "Mother of all Theaters," as a member of our focus group described it.
The new cinema system will include two industry-leading Christie® laser-illuminated 4K laser digital projectors, which will dazzle you with bright, ultra-sharp images, and incredibly vivid colors. Coupled with a premium Dolby Atmos® multichannel surround sound system – a first for institutional giant screen theaters, which uses a huge array of front, back, side and overhead speakers – you will be completely immersed in the action.
In addition to a continued focus on the awe-inspiring mission-centric documentaries that the Rangos Theater has become known for over the past 26 years, this new technology will provide extensive new capabilities and significant opportunities for you to enjoy a broad range of dynamic content. From Hollywood feature films, film festivals, cult and classic films, to educational and event films, 3D experiences, and extreme special effects, look for something new, exciting, and unique every month.
