Weekly What To Do: Yom Kippur Day Late and Carmaggedon II Weekend


Cinerama Dome Cinerama's 60th Anniversary

Check out the free movie Friday, first come first served

For the FIRST and ONLY time for one SPECTACULAR WEEK we will be playing twelve classic Cinerama productions. Select titles will be presented in the original 3 strip Cinerama process and additional titles will be digitally projected, re-mastered from the original negatives.
All of the films will be presented in the Dome, one of only three theatres in the world capable of projecting in 3 strip Cinerama. Specially designed to project Cinerama, the Dome features a giant, 126-degree curved screen that immerses audiences in the picture . Made of 316 hexagons and pentagons, the Dome is the only concrete geodesic dome in the world.
