like 90

India's first 'fulldome 3D Digital Theatre' has been inaugurated at the Science City at Kolkata. The digital theatre will feature a 23-meter tilted dome for an immersive experience of visitors.

Since inauguration of the Space Theatre in 1997, the shows were screened in analogue format. The new full dome theatre is a switch-over to 3D digital having six projectors. In a full dome theatre, the projection is on a hollow hemi- spherical screen.

The Space Theatre used to screen educational films on wildlife, science, creation of the planet. The digital content will be screened in high definition (HD) imaging and the 3D effect will provide viewers the simulated feel of being at place.

The Science City is operated by the National Council of Science Museums under the Ministry of Culture.
