The Dr. Phillips CineDome at the Orlando Science Center offers viewers breath-taking experiences that seem very realistic. This experience is made possible with the enormous size of the theatre and the special film-frame size.
To make a giant screen film, 15/70 mm film is the key ingredient, the largest ever used in motion picture history. Film-frame size directly correlates with picture clarity. Giant screen films are able to project the world’s largest images, coming in around 8 stories high, because they come from a projection of the world’s largest film frames.
Crystal-clear, multi-story visuals help to make the audience feel more thoroughly immersed in the film’s experience. Because of the screen’s enormous size, your peripheral vision takes an active role in watching the film, making you feel like you have been transported into the action of the film.
The gigantic film size is great for films like The Ultimate Wave: Tahiti because it brings a sense of realism to the breath-taking panoramic visuals of the French Polynesian, Tahiti, the region’s sea life and the action segments of Kelly Slater surfing massive waves.
Giant screen films are truly a rare experience, but don't take our word for it - come see for yourself. Tickets to any of our giant screen films are included in the price of a general admission ticket.
