We are excited to be able to add to our programme a number of full-surround films using our new 360-degree projection system from the USA. These films wrap around and over the viewer on the whole surface of the dome, and are the type of films presented in fixed planetariums in science centres, but we will bring them to your school!
This series of films is by Spitz Inc (www.spitzinc.com/fulldome_shows/index.html), this link gives examples film clips.
