The Tempurpedic IMAX Theaters (formerly the Verizon IMAX Theaters) are two IMAX Digital 3D theaters located in Jordan's Furniture stores in Natick, Massachusetts and Reading, Massachusetts.

The theater in Natick was the first one to open in August 2002. It features a screen that is 76 feet high and by 55 feet wide, 12,000 watt sound, 279 Tempurpedic seats, "butt-kicking" seats, and digitally remastered Hollywood films.

After the success of the theater in Natick, they opened their second theater during October 2004 in Reading which includes many of the features of the Natick IMAX with a seating capacity of 500. [1]

The theaters were originally sponsored by Verizon Communications. In April 2011, the sponsorship with Verizon ended, and Tempurpedic took over the naming rights.[2]

In September 2012, both theaters removed their 15/70 Film projectors and replaced them with digital projectors.[3]
