Adventure Theater **Updated Spotlight**


Recommended Posts

Here is a little info from Wikipedia:

Omnivision Cinema 180 same as standard 65/70 except:

 

photographed and projected with special fisheye lenses matched to large 180 degree dome screen

Theatres upgraded from 70 mm 6track analog sound to DTS digital sound in 1995.

Omnivision started in Sarasota, Florida. Theatres were designed to compete with Omnimax but with much lower startup and operating costs. Most theatres were built in fabric domed structures designed by Siemens Corporation. The last known OmniVision Theatres to exist in USA are The Alaska Experience Theatre in Anchorage, Alaska, built in 1981 (closed in 2007, reopened in 2008), and the Hawaii Experience Theatre in Lahaina, Hawaii (closed in 2004). Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire has a "Vertigo Theatre" that is a Cinema 180.

 

One of the few producers of 70 mm films for Cinema 180 was the German company Cinevision (today AKPservices GmbH, Paderborn).

Wildwood converted their Cinema 180 into a walk-thru attraction awhile back.

Sadly that is gone now, replaced by an upcharge Skyscaper. As far as I know Hershey has the only Cinema 180 still standing in the region.

This was my favorite attraction, not counting rides. That place was ahead of its time. Nothing better than rolling in there in the middle of a humid afternoon and cooling off while letting your imagination run wild watching the videos. I think i might have fallen to the ground one or two times. Keep them coming!!!!
